David Moyes was pleased to see his West Ham side show a ruthless edge against Norwich at the weekend and outlined our intent to now go all out to pip Manchester United to 6th spot in the league.

The victory over relegated Norwich was a vital one as it provided much needed breathing space between our Hammers and Wolves in 8th spot. A 7th place finish would mean European football again next season, however Moyes is focused on getting West Ham back in the top 6 for a second consecutive season.

“We’re well aware that we want European football again,” admitted the boss. “We’re trying to hang in there. We saw today as a really important game with two games to go, which are difficult.

“Getting the three points today gives us a little bit of leeway, but for us to try and catch Manchester United – and not be caught by Wolverhampton Wanderers – is really important.

“I think the players deserve it. The players have done such a good job and the supporters are showing exactly that, supporting them in a way where they recognise the efforts they’ve put in.

“They saw their team win today quite comfortably and obviously get a few goals as well. We’ve had a good win after a huge disappointment. Hopefully we can keep it going.”

Despite the healthy scoreline of 4-0, Moyes felt that we should have had more, whilst also providing an update on some of the knocks sustained during the encounter.

“Let’s be fair, we probably should have scored a lot more and we probably could have played a lot better if I’m being honest,” added Moyes. “It wasn’t one of our best performances, but we did well enough to win the game.

“Mick’s got a bit of a knock on his hip. Dawson took one in the calf, and Saïd’s could have been his ankle – I’ve not had the chance to see it yet – so hopefully they’ll all be okay. I don’t think they looked that serious.”
