David Moyes has spoken to the media ahead of our crunch Premier League clash this Sunday away to Everton.
The Hammers and former Toffees boss Moyes is aware of the importance of this match, and admits there will be no sentiment when returning to Goodison Park.
“I always look forward to going back to Everton,” stated Moyes to whufc.com. “But I manage West Ham and my job is to go and win – and that is what I am going to try and do.
“I think Frank Lampard is putting together a strong [Everton] side and sometimes it takes a little bit of time for all those things to work.
“There is a rebuild going on. Frank is starting to put bits together. They have not had as much money to spend as they have had in maybe past seasons.
“I think they have brought it some really good players Conor Coady, [James] Tarkowski – are very good Premier League players, really experienced players.”
One player who is on the managers radar is Max Cornet who has impressed the boss since his arrival, with Moyes expecting more goals as a result of having Ivory Coast international in the squad.
“He got us the penalty in the last game at home against FCSB,” said the Hammers boss. “He has started to make a contribution already. I think it is probably his lateness back into pre-season, getting him back into condition.
“I don’t mean he was badly out of condition; I just mean that he was more not game-ready and hadn’t had any match minutes. But I think we are still finding our way with him, we are looking at exactly where best to use him, try to fit him in.
“If his goal against Chelsea had counted – which it should have done – he hit the post in that game as well, he has already shown us he is someone who can get a goal.
“And, if you look at his record at Burnley, in a short time at Burnley, it was very good – and his goals for Lyon prior to that, was what helped get me thinking he would be a good player to bring to the club.”
