Paul Merson suggested that David Moyes’s West Ham United are a completely different animal now ahead of their clash with Leicester City this afternoon, when speaking on Sky Sports Gillette Soccer Saturday (Saturday April 10th, 1:23pm).

The Hammers are currently flying high in the Premier League table. Moyes’s men can jump up to fourth spot with a win today, and would be just one point behind third placed Leicester.

This season has been a far cry from last term when we battled against relegation for pretty much the entire campaign.

David Moyes has worked wonders at the London Stadium. West Ham look like a completely different team now to what we did 12 months ago.

It would be a minor miracle if the Scot managed to guide the Hammers to a top four finish this season.

Paul Merson notices major difference at West Ham since David Moyes took over

A win over Leicester this afternoon and things will look very rosy for the Hammers.

Merson suggested that Moyes deserves so much credit for the job he has done at the London Stadium, when speaking on Sky Sports Gillette Soccer Saturday (Saturday April 10th, 1:23pm):

“David Moyes doesn’t get the credit he deserves. He’s got a team there at West Ham. How many times have we been on here saying, ‘West Ham are pace-less, an ageing team’. He’s come in and this team now, break with pace, with all them players. This is how David Moyes wants to play, always important to get the first goal.”

West Ham have looked so dangerous over the past few months. Especially since Jesse Lingard joined the club on loan from Manchester United.

The chance to qualify for the Champions League is in our own hands.

Hopefully we have enough to finish the job off between now and May.

Whatever happens, however, Moyes needs to be applauded for the job he has done since taking the Hammers over for the second time in December 2019.
