West Ham record £20.5million signing Ayew came on from the bench to earn a point for the Hammers at Watford with only his second goal for the Hammers, as he just returned from injury.

West Ham will host Chelsea on March 6, and the Ghana international is already looking forward to the game.

His debut season at the club has been disrupted by injury – a torn thigh muscle 35 minutes into his debut at Chelsea last August, and he has been away on duty with his national team at the African Cup of Nations.

He’s now back to full fitness and is looking forward to meeting Chelsea again.

“For me it was important to score – it was my first game back after the African Cup of Nations, I will continue to work hard and hopefully I will score more goals to help the team.

“It has been frustrating but sometimes football is a game where you have to be patient, keep and believing in yourself.

“I am not far away from 100 per cent – I played every game for Ghana at the African Cup of Nations and showed I could cope with the pressure.

“Hopefully everyone will be fit for Chelsea and we can give the supporters some joy.”
