David Moyes has slammed the inconsiderate Premier League for failing to help West Ham despite flying the flag in Europe.

West Ham had been on a rapid rise under Moyes over the last couple of seasons before their difficulties this season.

But they have still been doing England and the Premier League proud on the continent.

West Ham have qualified for the last 16 of European football in consecutive seasons for the first time in the club’s history.

After making the Europa League semi-finals last season, the Hammers take on Cypriot side Larnaca over two legs in the next couple of weeks for a place in the quarter-finals of the Europa Conference League.

West Ham are well on their way to another 50-55 game season and played Man United in the FA Cup fifth round on Wednesday night.

The Hammers are at Brighton on Saturday before the away leg in Larnaca on Thursday followed by a home game against Villa next Sunday.

And Moyes has slammed the inconsiderate Premier League for failing to help West Ham despite flying the flag in Europe.

The Scot feels the Premier League could have done more to give West Ham more time between matches, especially being they are one of the top flight’s European representatives.

It’s not an easy thing when you play Thursday-Sunday, of course,” Moyes said in his pre-Brighton press conference.

“I don’t think the Premier League has helped putting this game on a Saturday after the cup tie on Wednesday.

“But we turn up and we play.

“But we’re looking forward to the Thursday-Sundays because it means we’re competing in Europe.”

In the same presser Moyes delivered a West Ham injury update ahead of the crucial game with Brighton.

And West Ham have – theoretically at least – been handed a big boost ahead of the match at the Amex after the FA banned Seagulls boss Roberto De Zerbi.
