West Ham attacker Marko Arnautovic has insisted he is now fully focused on the Hammers Premier League clash against Man City this Saturday after he won rave reviews playing for Austria last weekend.
Arnautovic came of the bench to provide a match-winning cameo against Northern Ireland at Windsor Park last Sunday evening.
The former Stoke attacker has emerged as the Hammers talisman since making a £25 million move to the London Stadium in the summer of 2017 and he has assured West Ham fans that he will be fully fit and raring to go when his side entertain Pep Guardiola’s in-form Man City team this weekend.
“We can be proud of the win,” Arnautovic told the press after the game.
“We can’t be proud that we’re not first [in the group], but we came here and wanted to get a win, and we did.”
“I will be okay. Two [games] in a row was a bit too much but the gaffer asked me to play the last 25 minutes if needed, and it was needed. I am glad I could help. 20 minutes, that’s all I need!
“I [now] concentrate on West Ham and we have a big game against Manchester City on Saturday and I am only thinking about this game and the following games.
“My business is to perform on the pitch, to put in performances and that is what I want to do.”
The striker has been linked with a move to Manchester United in recent weeks.
