Soccer – Arnautovic retains Irons focus


Marko Arnautovic is determined to keep his focus on putting in good performances for West Ham and not be distracted by rumours of a transfer.

The 29-year-old Austria international forward has impressed so far this term for the Irons, despite having to nurse a knee problem.
And former Werder Bremen and Stoke City frontman Arnautovic says he will not allow himself to lose focus on the job in hand, starting with a Premier League clash with reigning champions and current table-toppers Manchester City.
He told Sky Sports after helping Austria defeat Northern Ireland 2-1: “I don’t want to talk about that. I concentrate on West Ham and we have a big game against Manchester City on Saturday.
“My business is to perform on the pitch, to put in performances and that is what I want to do.”
The Hammers, who have lost their last five meetings with the Citizens, conceding 18 goals in the process, can be backed at 5/1 with Bet365 to secure a draw on Saturday afternoon.
