Moyes’ brutal match verdict!

David Moyes insists that the Hammers did not play well against Chelsea!

The Irons won the game 3-2 and were in genuinely sensational form at times throughout the game.

Manuel Lanzini scored a penalty while a brilliant Jarrod Bowen strike and a freak Arthur Masuaku goal gave the Irons a truly magnificent win over the Premier League leaders.

It was the first time this season that Chelsea had conceded more than one goal in a game, and the Hammers became just the second team to beat them in the Premier League, after Manchester City.

The Irons will now be hoping to maintain the momentum and stick in the top four for as long as humanly possible, but Moyes was brutally honest in his post-match assessment, insisting that they did not play well!

Speaking to BT Sport after the game, as quoted by The Guardian, the Hammers boss said: “Truthfully, we didn’t play that well today, but we got the goals. Against a team that doesn’t concede many, that’s a great credit to the lads. I just said to Arthur, it was a great cross!

“It was very fortunate, let’s not kid ourselves on, but you need a bit of fortune sometimes and we had some brilliant individual performances. But overall I want the team to play much better, and I think they can.

“To beat Chelsea and say we’re not playing well enough, hopefully that helps us. We want to compete with whoever is in the top four, and I think we’re giving them a game. We’ll hang in, and see what we can do.”

One comment on “Moyes’ brutal match verdict!

  1. ita a sign of a good side that wins well without playing well is what he means.But Chelsea,like Liverpool and Man city,all retain the ball for long periods.But we looked the more likely to score today and Chelsea had few chances.But to be fair,this season is so demanding that mental fatigue is going to affect at some point as it did against Brighton.This season and regardless what happens,i refuse to criticise any body at the club,they have raised the the bar of “the West ham way”.
