West Ham first teamer claims best is yet to come
By Dominic Toner
West Ham attacker Sofiane Feghouli believes that he is yet to show his best form since he joined the club.
The 27-year-old completed his move to the Hamemrs in the summer and missed the earlier stages of the season with a hamstring injury.
The Algerian has struggled to cement his place in the first-team under Slaven Bilic, but now appears to have turned a corner.
The right winger has started the last two Premier League matches and scored just his second goal in 17 appearances in the victory against Crystal Palace.
Feghouli feels that he is still settling at the club and is yet to show the Premier League his full potential.

“I haven’t been here long, I think it will still take some time to show my absolute best,” Feghouli said, as quoted by the club’s official website. “I know that there is more for me to show to both my teammates and the supporters of the club.”
Feghouli’s run in the side has coincided with West Ham’s recent form and they have managed to cope with Dimitri Payet.
The Hammers are up to 10th-placed in the Premier League table and have buried any concerns of relegation this season.
Feghouli will now be hoping to keep his place in the starting XI and recapture the form he showed at Valencia.
The attacker was a regular starter for the Spanish club and made 202 appearances for them, scoring 31 goals and supplying 40 assists.
