David Moyes has spoken to the press to discuss our upcoming Premier League away fixture to Everton this Sunday.

West Ham head to Goodison Park on the back of a disappointing home defeat to Brentford prior to the International break and will be eager to get things back on track at a ground that has served up some tough encounters over the years.

Moyes too has memories to put aside Sunday after spending 11 years at the helm in a successful spell as a manager for Everton which came to an end in 2013 when the Scotsman left to take over at Manchester United.

Today Moyes also discussed Newcastle’s takeover, Antonio, Soucek and growing West Ham United.

 

On Sundays trip to Goodison Moyes said: “It’s one of many games which are going to be really important. Everton are a big club and it’s a big game. There’s always a really great atmosphere at Goodison.

“We’re looking forward to it. We’re confident in how we’re playing and the style we’re playing in. We look as if we can score goals and we’re hoping we can do that.”
“We’ve probably got one or two injuries, one or two people coming back from international duty we’re having to look after. It looks like this break’s taken its toll on lots of teams.

“If I did have any nos, I wouldn’t tell you anyway! We might have some people who are unavailable.”

Our boss also provided an update on Michail Antonio: “I think he has been firing on all cylinders and I hope he’s well rested and has got some good training in.

“He chose not to go with Jamaica in the end because he felt that some of the logistics weren’t correct, and we’re hoping he can continue with the good form he’s been in since the beginning of the season.”
Moyes was also quizzed on the recent takeover of Newcastle United: “In truth, I don’t know about Newcastle to comment on it. They’re a big club and always were a big club, but time will only tell if they become even bigger.”

Finally the boss discussed the current project at West Ham and growing the club: “The West Ham name is around this part of the city. It’s a huge Club. I still think there’s big room for improvement, and we’re trying to do that.

“First and foremost, it’s my job to improve the stuff on the pitch, then the Club has to build off the pitch as well.
“I think in the last couple of years we’ve started to grow it and we’ve done a lot of good things as well.”
West Hams fixture against Everton this Sunday is live on Sky Sports at 2pm.
