David Moyes is bound to understand that to do anything other than attack teams – or look to mount incisive counter attacks is absolute no no for this squad right now.
Our confidence is such that we surely can’t be looking to play defensive games anywhere at this point in time.
And that applies to Manchester City this weekend – a bonus game if ever there was one.
Whoever would have believed that these two teams would met on the back of 13 straight wins from City and eight of 11 from the Irons.
We of course earned a hugely respectable point at the London Stadium with Lukasz Fabianski taking the honours with two great late saves in the 1-1 draw at the London Stadium. Time to go one better?
With an even better defensive set-up than back then and the ability to counter attack with decisive effect on many occasions there’s no huge reason to worry about a trip to the Etihad.
Clearly we can obviously expect the League leaders to boss possession but with the Hammers effective on the break and of course at set pieces I reckon we have an even money chance of bringing something from this game.
Oue team: Fabianski, Couval, Diop, Dawson, Cresswell, Bowen Rice, Soucek, Benrahma, Lingard, Antonio
