Cape Town - West Ham United playmaker Manuel Lanzini says he is relishing his partnership with Marko Arnautovic because they share the same mentality on the pitch.

Lanzini and Arnautovic have scored nine goals and made eight assists between them in the Irons' last 13 Premier League outings, and the Argentine has revealed that the partnership reminds him of playing with Dimitri Payet two years ago.

“Our partnership is fantastic,” he told the club's official website. “It’s easy to play with Marko because he is a good player, he has a good touch, good mentality and he wants to win the games. He is like me, so it’s easy to play with these players.

“We make each other better, of course. We want the same things and we think the same way.

“It’s similar to the feeling I had with Dimi [Dimitri Payet] before, because they are similar players. If you have a player who plays like you, it’s easy. You need to connect and that’s it. You touch the ball one way, and he touches the ball the same way.”

The Hammers are preparing to travel to Swansea City for their next Premier League outing on Saturday.

They are currently sitting in 13th position in the standings, but are only three points clear of the bottom three.

Kick-off is at 17:00.
