David Moyes has admitted that the pressure is now mounting ahead of the huge clash against Everton in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Hammers boss has faced fierce criticism of late with fans growing increasingly frustrated with the results and more alarmingly performances this season, which have resulted in West Ham sitting in the bottom 3 of the league with half the campaign played.

Our Hammers face the Toffees at London Stadium on Saturday with both clubs desperate to gain much needed points, and Moyes knows that this match against his former club is crucial if he is to turn around a so-far awful campaign.

“It’s a huge game for both,” Moyes told the press. “But one you look forward to. Hopefully we can come out on top!

The Hammers  boss admitted that pressure is now being felt but that his players are well equipped to cope whilst als acknowledging that Saturday is a must-win game. Moyes will also be hoping the signing of Danny Ings, who the club signed in time to feature against the Toffees will have a big impact in helping turn the tide.

“Danny is a good as it gets,” exclaimed the boss.0 “The paperwork was done in time and we need to wait for the confirmation on registration.

“I think it’s a bit of both in terms of feeling pressure and keeping smiling,” added Moyes. “But it’s important to understand what pressure means

“Tomorrow’s game means a lot, and from that point of view we need to focus on getting three points. We’re halfway through the season, there’s a long way to go and we have to make sure we improve.”
