Valencia targets goal rush

Enner Valencia is targeting today's visit of Burnley to get back amongst the goals as West Ham look to address a poor run of form.

The Hammers have won just three Premier League games since the turn of the year and any hopes of European qualification have now been replaced by targeting a top-half finish.

Valencia has impressed in his first season in England but has scored just four league goals - his last in February - and the Ecuador international wants to hit the goal trail to help Sam Allardyce's side pick up a win against sturggling Burnley.

"We're all determined to get the three points we need, so hopefully we can start the final run-in with a good result," he said.

"We've got Burnley and after playing the last two games I feel great now. I've had some injuries during the season but now I am back and ready to play.

"I remember my goal at Burnley well. It was a good goal on the counter attack. Carl Jenkinson put in a good cross and thankfully I could head it into the goal."
