West Ham manager David Moyes has spoken to the press ahead of our Premier League clash with Manchester United on Sunday.
Our Hammers host an indifferent Red Devils side, who although have improved this season, have shown inconsistencies which ha given hope Moyes’ side could cause an upset and gain some valuable points in our survival battle this season.
Irons boss Moyes has acknowledged the good work put in by his counterpart Ten Hag, with the Dutchman impressing in his first season in the Old Trafford hot seat.
“He’s done it in a great way, he’s got a really good response,” said Moyes. “Manchester United have got terrific players. We had to play one of the best teams a few weeks ago in Arsenal and we’ve got to play another on Sunday.
“A few of the games against Manchester United have been pretty close and obviously, it’s really important.”
Moyes also provided an update on the absentee front, with some players having missed action this week due to illness and also concern over the injury sustained by Kurt Zouma last weekend.
“They’ve been in today, today is the first chance we’ve had to assess them,” said Moyes on Rice, Soucek and Aguerd. “We’ve got a couple of other people, one was sent home and other was feeling it.
“We’re not going to give a timeline on Kurt because we know he’s a boy who recovers quickly.”
The West Ham boss is hopeful that his team will provide a stern test for the Red Devils this Sunday, but knows it will not be an comfortable game.
“I probably had 30 games against them before I joined them, they are always difficult games. If we play at our best, we will give them a difficult game.”
