David Moyes has admitted there are no guarantees in the Premier League following a weekend of unlikely results.
It appears that the West Ham boss was eluding to the 6-1 Aston Villa win over Brighton, the Crystal Palace victory at Old Trafford and Manchester City falling to a 2-1 defeat at Wolves.
The reason for Moyes highlighting these results was to substantiate his stance that the victory yesterday over bottom of the table Sheffield United was by no means guaranteed, and his side deserved credit for the display which keeps West Ham in 7th place in the league after 7 games played.
“I think if anybody looks at the result they’ll say it was a great result for West Ham, whether it was 2-0 or more,” the Irons boss told the clubs Official Website.
“If you look at the results in the Premier League today, there are no guarantees. It’s a strange league and we did a really good job to get a good victory.”
Despite the 2-0 victory over the Blades, Moyes admitted his side should have been in a far more comfortable position, with West Ham being wasteful in front of goal especially in the first half.
“I was pleased with the way we started the game and we could have been four or five up at half-time,” added the boss.
“We missed a couple of chances and we had a couple of corners we looked very close to getting on the end of.
“There were things we liked in the first half with the chances we made, but in the second half we looked as if we just ran out of energy.”
Next up in the league is Newcastle, and the way the league table is shaping up is looking like a six-pointer already, as our Hammers look to continue our march towards a European spot once again.
