West Ham manager David Moyes has criticised Nayef Aguerd for his role in the Cody Gakpo goal for Liverpool last night.
The Hammers took to the lead early on in the game through a Lucas Paqueta strike but we lost 2-1 to the Reds in the end.
It was a disappointing result, especially considering the fact that the referee and VAR failed to award us a late penalty after Thiago clearly handled the ball inside the penalty area.
Despite Liverpool dominating the ball, we had more than enough chances to have got a point. And Moyes believes that his side should not have conceded two goals either…
David Moyes criticises Nayef Aguerd
The Scot addressed the media after West Ham lost 2-1 to Liverpool in the Premier League at the London Stadium last night.
And Moyes responded when asked whether he thinks his side should have taken something from the contest, as quoted by Football.London:
“I thought we gave away two sloppy goals, from our point of view. We could have blocked the first one.”
So Moyes was clearly unhappy with Aguerd, as he was the player closest to Gakpo just before the Dutchman unleashed his shot.
Signed for £28 million from Rennes in the summer transfer window (Daily Mail), the Morocco international has proven to be an outstanding addition to Moyes’s ranks at the London Stadium.
Overall, he has been superb for West Ham, and in fairness to him, he put in a tremendous performance once again last night against Liverpool.
Aguerd can still get a lot better though, and he will undoubtedly improve with the more Premier League football that he plays. Let’s not forget, he has only played 14 Premier League games!
The 27-year-old will go on to become one of the best ever defenders to wear the famous Claret and Blue, I have no doubts about that.
