David Moyes shares what he told West Ham players in the dressing room after Arsenal defeat

David Moyes spoke to reporters in the aftermath of West Ham’s 1-0 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates yesterday, and shared what he told his players in the dressing room after the match, as quoted by Football.London.

The Hammers actually played quite well against the Gunners, and looked like the more dangerous out of the two sides by quite some way.

Luckily for West Ham, Bournemouth and Watford lost as well, so they remain outside the relegation zone, but only due to a superior goal difference.

The Hammers really do need to start winning games. Performances don’t really matter at the moment. It’s all about getting results.

Nightmare run of fixtures nearing its end

West Ham have some tough fixtures on the horizon, with games against Wolves at home, Tottenham away and Chelsea at home to come in three next three matches.

If they can take four points from those games, they will have a great chance of staying up, with some very winnable matches in their last six.

The players should at least take some confidence out of yesterday’s defeat to Arsenal because of how many chances they created.

And Moyes shared with reporters what he told the West Ham players after the game at the Emirates, as quoted by Football.London:

“Well, I think they played really well the players and I have told them that, really well. You think of the performance at Liverpool and we played well there, played well against Southampton and then again today but we have only taken three points from those three games. So, I’ve said to them I am pleased to say well done but I am not going to keep doing it until we start getting more points. I’d rather play not so well but winning games because that’s what we need, we need the points.”

West Ham clearly have the quality needed to stay up. Whether the players can get the job done under pressure when it matters, however, remains to be seen.
