David Moyes admits he doesn’t know his best line up nor does he particularly want to .

The Hammers are improving on both Premier League and Conference level which – as it should – is helping the manager make difficult decisions.

He likes to remain in the dark about the line-up he intends to put out for a particular game until close to the game telling reporters: “I think it is good when you don’t know.

You want the competition, and you want players to feel that. for me to turn around and say: ‘I know my best 11’ would be naïve. That makes the other players think that they are not getting in the team.

It is open for everyone to challenge and be a first team player. Europe is giving them a chance to do that. and even if you do pick a best 11, two or three of those may get injured.

It’s not a particularly good words to use, the ‘best 11’, because quite often in a season you need other players and you don’t get your best 11 fit all the time.”
