Joe Hart has offered his backing to new West Ham United manager David Moyes, and said that he thinks the club look far better now – and it’s only going to take one good game or result for the side to really pick up and get back to winning ways – and become a side other teams fear playing against.
The Evening Standard report he said: “I really enjoyed the small amount of time I worked with Slaven.
“As a man he was brilliant. It just felt like it was an uncomfortable situation for everyone so the decision got made and David has come in. It’s quite a simple job in his eyes and our eyes – just sort us out, get us playing as a team. Get us playing with a strong formation and make us accountable for mistakes.
“It’s good in my opinion, it’s strong, it’s organised and every training session needs to be at a maximum. Asking someone to train at 100 per cent is not being tough. It’s just asking someone to do their job. Against Leicester we had that little spark, we had that energy and Leicester were hanging on for the draw.
“I think we are a game away from feeling really confident and being a hard team to play against.”
West Ham know that they simply have to start picking up points and Moyes will not want to see another side he is in charge of relegated, meaning wins are essential.
Given they take on Everton this week, it’s the ideal chance to get three points and one over on their relegation rivals – not to mention move away from the rest of the fighting pack.
After that, the Hammers face Manchester City and it could well be a case of how many goals Pep Guardiola’s side manage to put past Hart and the defence given how well the league leaders are playing.
