Cape Town - West Ham United defender Ryan Fredericks says the Irons are determined to bounce back against Everton on Sunday, after their poor start to the season.

Manuel Pellegrini's charges have kicked off their Premier League campaign with four consecutive defeats, against Liverpool, Bournemouth, Arsenal, and Wolves.

The results have put the Hammers at the bottom of the standings and Fredericks admits the players were disappointed, especially with the home defeat to Wolves.

"The international break given us a bit of time to clear our heads. Everyone was disappointed after the Wolves game. We spoke about it in the dressing room afterwards that that kind of performance was unacceptable," Fredericks told the club's official website.

"We've been working hard over the international break and we're confident of a much better performance and hopefully a better result on Sunday.

"We've gone over the fundamentals of how we want to attack and how we want to defend and done a lot of fitness-based stuff because it's important to keep fitness levels high and improve on them as well. We've just gone over all the stuff the gaffer wants from us and hopefully we can take it into the game."
