Moyes immensely proud

David Moyes admits that he is immensely proud of having turned the form of the Hammers around after the 3-2 win over Liverpool.

The Hammers were in immense form on Sunday and thoroughly deserved to record the first ever Premier League win over the Reds this season.

Moyes’ men are now third in the league table, only behind leaders Chelsea and second-placed Manchester City, with the latter only ahead on goal difference.

Indeed, the Irons actually have an identical record to City, winning seven games, drawing two, and losing two, and Moyes admits that he is hugely gratified by the way he has managed to take the Hammers from the brink of relegation into the top six.

Speaking after the win over the Reds, Moyes said, per BBC Sport“What the supporters really want to see is a winning team and they’re beginning to see a team that’s winning a lot more now. It was a terrific effort from the players and we even could have scored a couple more.

“This result shows that we’re really in with a good chance of challenging for the top places.

“I’m hugely proud [that I’ve turned West Ham around]. The way the players have gone about it, you talk about me turning it around, these players were close to relegation. Now we’re pushing for Europe.”

Moyes also admits that he was never convinced that the Irons were going to take all three points, so good are Jurgen Klopp’s men.

He added: “It’s been hard to beat Liverpool over my career, they’ve been a very good side, so I was very pleased to get it today.

“Even when it went to 3-1 it was never comfortable, Liverpool were very good and we had to work hard to keep them out.

“We didn’t play well in the first half. Sometimes when you play on a Sunday having played on a Thursday night, you don’t start well.

“We weren’t as good as we should have been and they were very good. We changed things around at half time.”
