West Ham boss David Moyes has suggested that Eintracht Frankfurt could actually be worried by the one-goal lead that they hold ahead of the Europa League second-leg clash.
The Hammers take on Frankfurt at Deutsche Bank Park tomorrow night for what is one of the very biggest games in the history of our club.
West Ham lost 2-1 to the Bundesliga outfit at the London Stadium last week. It was a really tight game though and it really could have gone either way on the night.
Eintracht Frankfurt were just far more clinical in the final third. West Ham will have to be more clinical tomorrow night if we are to have any chance of winning the match at Deutsche Bank Park.
At least the equation is simple for us – win the game or be eliminated.
Meanwhile, the Eintracht Frankfurt players might be caught in no man’s land. Do they attack and try and put the tie to bed? Or do they hold on to the advantage they have?
David Moyes thinks Eintracht Frankfurt have one big worry ahead of second-leg clash with West Ham
The Scot believes that his players need to manage the game correctly tomorrow night in Germany.
Moyes also outlined how Frankfurt holding a one-goal lead could actually be somewhat of a concern for the German side, as quoted by WHUFC.com:
“We need to manage the game correctly. Frankfurt are a goal up and they need to manage it correctly – sometimes that’s a worry as well.”
It’s a fair point from Moyes.
Frankfurt may well be caught in two minds tomorrow night and if they are, we need to take full advantage.
The Hammers players need to perform with maturity and bravery at Deutsche Bank Park tomorrow night.
West Ham are well capable of beating Eintracht Frankfurt in the second-leg clash. Whether the players will rise to the occasion in Germany remains to be seen though.
