David Moyes says the Hammers can finally start looking up the Premier League table instead of over their shoulders!
The Irons picked up another three points grinding out an important 1-0 win over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
Seb Haller’s screamer proved decisive, as he thumped the ball into the top corner from the edge of the box to justify his selection up front.
The win moved the Hammers into eighth at full time and ensured that they took six points from their last two games, and picked up another clean sheet, having also beaten Fulham 1-0 prior to the international break.
Now Moyes believes that the club can start looking towards the top of the table.
Speaking after the game, as quoted by BBC Sport, he said: “I am thrilled to pick up three points. They have a lot of good players, a good manager – I know what it is like, when you get into a losing run.
“Our boys at the moment are playing with a lot of confidence and thankfully we got another win today.
“I hope we can play even better. Eighth is great at the moment, I hope we can look towards the top and not the bottom as we have done too often.
“We are not going to get too carried away, but in the dressing room there is a great spirit – we have changed a lot of things behind the scenes and the players are buying into it.
“We have to make sure the players enjoy their work and work that will help us in the games.”
Having played nine games, Moyes’ men have taken 14 points; they are six points off Premier League leaders Spurs – before Leicester’s game against Liverpool – and 11 clear of the drop zone.
