David Moyes comes out all guns blazing with bold West Ham prediction ahead of the Premier League clash with Arsenal.
The Hammers head to the Emirates to take on Arsenal on Boxing Day for what is a huge game for both sides, but for very different reasons!
Moyes has a really difficult job on his hands, if he is to guide his West Ham side back into contention for European football this season.
The Hammers are currently sitting in 16th spot in the Premier League table, just one point clear of the relegation zone.
Things won’t get any easier for the Scot though.
The last game that Moyes and his players would have fancied is Arsenal away. The Hammers players will have to be at their very best if they are to leave north London with a positive result to show for their efforts.
David Moyes is backing his side to start producing the goods when action resumes though…
Moyes makes bold prediction ahead of Arsenal vs West Ham
The Hammers boss has been speaking to WHUFC.com ahead of his side getting back into action on Monday night.
And Moyes said:
Looking back now, I think it was needed. We had about 24 games and it took its toll, a little bit. We had 13 games where we only had two days of recovery – so, to go out and play again, it’s really difficult. The Thursday/Sunday schedule is never easy. Because of that I’m hoping that we will benefit from the break and that the players come back, nice and fresh. And what I’ve seen from them I’ve enjoyed, hopefully we are going to get back to our levels in the coming weeks and months.
Let’s hope that Moyes is right but I must say, I didn’t see any signs of vast improvements during our three mid-season friendly games.
The football still seemed to be stale, slow and predictable.
The players really do need to liven up and fast, if we are to enjoy a successful 2022/23 campaign on all fronts.
Moyes has come out fighting ahead of the West Ham vs Arsenal vs West Ham clash. Now it’s down to him to implement an exciting game plan to beat the Gunners, and for the players to turn up at the Emirates and be counted.
