Moyes update on injuries, relegation, Lanzini and weather

David Moyes has spoken to reporters ahead of the Hammers game against Swansea this Saturday.
On the injury front, Moyes said  “We’re okay. We’ve got a few people with knocks and bruises as all clubs, but overall we’re fine.”

On the big game against Swansea he said “I think ever since I’ve come in, every game has been a big game. We’ve picked up some good results, but we’ve got to be mindful of how well Swansea have done. We’ve got to be mindful, going there. We’ve had some good results away from home though.  I think there’s enough game for all the teams to still stay up. The home games are important to most clubs. There’s a lot of draws at the bottom end of the table. If we keep picking up points we will be a Premier League club next season.”

 On chances of relegation, he said “It’s the tightest it’s been since I can remember. The bottom of the table is tightening up and the top of the table is getting further away. No one can guarantee they are going to be okay. Those newly promoted clubs have made it difficult for other teams. There’s a fight on that will go to the end of the season.”
On his time at West Ham so far  “I’m enjoying the Club. I’m enjoying working with the people here. The supporters have been great since I’ve been here. They’ve been with the team – long may that continue.”

 On speculation of a new contract for Lanzini “You always want to keep your best players but there’s no truth in that yet. We won’t look at that until we know what league we are in.”

On travelling to Wales this weekend “The Met Office is saying people shouldn’t travel, especially through Cardiff and down the M4. It is a concern at the moment and I’m guessing it shouldn’t be any different for football teams and fans. I think the Premier League may need to look at that.”
