West Ham boss Moyes worried about relegation despite point vs Chelsea


West Ham United manager David Moyes has claimed his side did well to get a point against Chelsea and while he is obviously happy with that given how he thought Chelsea played on the day, he still thinks the Hammers need to be looking over their shoulder at possible relegation – and that the club need to make sure they get points from the rest of their games.

“I’m not disappointed,” he told reporters. “I thought we played against a really slick Chelsea team, particularly in the first half, and I was happy to get in only 1-0 down.

“We gave away a really poxy first goal. If it had been a really good footballing goal… it was a bad goal. But we were always in with a chance at 1-0.

“It’s not comfortable enough [West Ham’s position in the table]. From where we are, I want to try and push on. We’ve picked up four points from two games.

“After the situation against Burnley, the club and the team have done a brilliant job, and the supporters… the way they gave their tribute to Ray Wilkins was a credit.

He was also asked about the game against Stoke, which he claimed would be their biggest of the season and that they would be ready, saying: “Yes, it is.

“We’ll get ready for that one and, if we perform the way we’ve been doing, we’ll give ourselves a great chance.”

Did Harry Kane score for Spurs vs Stoke?

The Hammers may have taken a point but their upcoming opponents Stoke are struggling and look strong favourites to go down, meaning they really are in a position where they have to fight for every single point and each draw or win will help.

The Hammers can be happy that not only are the team playing better than earlier in the season but that they’re picking up points and the fans also seem happier, something Moyes commented on and noted the atmosphere is now helping the players.
