We are good enough to stay up – Moyes


West Ham United Manager, David Moyes who has previously overseen an instant turn around in the fortune of the London club after they started the season poorly has vowed to ensure the club stays in the Premier League after a poor run of results.

The Hammers suffered a 3-0 defeat at home to Burnley on Saturday in a dramatic encounter which witnessed a session of the club fans making their dissatisfaction known with a protest at the game was ongoing.

However, despite the troubles that surround the club as fans continue to ask questions of their co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold, Moyes believes the squad is good enough to stay up this season.

He told the club’s official website: “I’ve told the players we are all going to stick together, we’re going to stick our chests out and go again and we’re going to get back to winning ways, and we need to do it quickly.

“We need to play better for longer periods in the game and we’re certainly going to have to defend better. I think we’ve got attacking players who can score, but they didn’t score today.

“So, we’ll get back at it and do the job. When I came in, I didn’t think it was going to be easy, and in the main, the players have been really good, but we weren’t good enough today. But I do believe we are good enough to stay up.”

Moyes felt his side were on top in the first half and was disappointed that the game ended in a heavy defeat.

He added: “We missed two or three great chances in the first half. I thought we played well. In truth, two minutes of madness changed the whole game when it never really looked like we were under a great deal of threat.

“We played well so it’s just disappointing the way it went.”

Mark Noble On Chelsea Win

It’s great to leave happily – Noble

Westham United Captain. Mark Noble says it was a great feeling to leave London stadium happily after Saturday’s remarkable victory over defending champion, Chelsea.

Noble, who is only coming back into the starting eleven after he had been dropped to the bench by new Manager, David Moyes in their 2: nil loss to Watford was at his impressive best on Saturday.

Westham had struggled at home since September having failed to win in all their matches at home. Many would have expected an easy one for the blues but David Moyes’ side turned the lights on to make a massive statement as they kept Chelsea at bay from start to finish after Marko Arnautovic early opener. Noble can only hope of a repeat when they host the Gunners at the London stadium on Wednesday.

“It’s nice to go home with a smile on my face,” Noble told Westham official website.

“I do like winning local derbies! Chelsea, Spurs and we’ve got another one on Wednesday night against Arsenal”

“When you play against these big teams and you play against teams like this that have so much money and can buy the best players in the world, you can’t just open up and match them up”

“You’ve got to realize that and you have to find a way to beat them. We found that way by defending, by counter-attacking and I don’t care if we defended for 90 minutes, we won the game”
