Hart replaces Adrian

Joe Hart will start Burnley, manager David Moyes has confirmed.

Speaking to reporters in his pre-match press conference, Moyes said that Hart will replace Adrian in goal at London Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

“Joe Hart will start on Saturday,” Moyes confirmed. “Although it was not necessarily down to the fact we conceded eight goals in the last two matches, was I happy with the nature of the goals we conceded? No, I was not. With one of the games [at Liverpool], you might have said ‘right, OK’, but the other one [at Swansea City] I was not happy with.

“Joe has been good. I’ve got big competition in some positions and that is good. You have to play well if you’re going to play. There is big pressure if you don’t perform.There were a couple of games where I wasn’t happy that we had done quite as well as we could have done.”

  1. “Moishe” is back to his dithering days..
    Adrian had little to do with the 8 goals we shipped in the last 2 games, but Moishe seems to have required a scapegoat.

    • Couldn’t agree more. I don’t care whether Hart gets in the England team – West Ham need the best keeper on the pitch and that’s Adrian by a mile. Roll on the end of the season and just avoiding relegation.

  2. I don’t agree. I think it’s quite clever. Adrian has got his contract extension and Hart will be gone. Hart has to have a blinder for the rest the season to get his World Cup spot.

  3. Watch Burnley shoot hard and low to Hart’s left . Oh dear .

    • Just like Ki did for Swansea last week only it wasn’t hard…..
      Harts distribution is also better than Adrian, if he lets in 4 or more then go back to Adrian!
