Unhappy Moyes: Fixture list has been unfair


The Premier League fixture list has been unfair according to the Hammers manager

West Ham, coming off a 4-1 defeat against Aston Villa and a 2-1 loss to Olympiacos in the Europa League, are about to play four out of our next five matches at the London Stadium. When speaking to the press ahead of tomorrow’s match, Moyes was keen to point out that his Hammers team have been disadvantaged.

We are set to host Everton, face Arsenal in the Carabao Cup quarter-final, play Olympiacos in the return fixture, and then Nottingham Forest. Although the squad arrived back from Greece in the early hours of Friday morning, David Moyes sees this fixture advantage as a positive development.

Fixture list has been unfair: Moyes is unhappy at having to play so many away games

Moyes said, “It does feel like an advantage. If you look at our start to the season, I was moaning a little bit because I thought we had a really unfair start to the season. We had three away from home in the first four games of the season, and even in the next batch of games, it kept us in a negative side regarding being away from home.”

Despite Everton’s struggles this season, Moyes expects a challenging match against them. He believes Everton is a resilient team that performs better away from home and has the capability to score goals. West Ham is determined to prepare for this game like any other Premier League encounter.
