West Ham manager David Moyes has given praise to Mohammed Kudus after his display helped our Hammers snatch 3 points at Burnley on Saturday.
It could be said that the performance as a whole wasn’t one that many would have expected to result in a win, but West Ham stuck together and turn the game on its head to take the points back to east London.
It was the second league match in a row whereby Moyes’ side had to come from behind to claim victory, however the boss admitted that the attitude and desire shown by the team, and in particular Kudus, was something he wants to see more of.
“I’m glad I’m hearing Mo wanted to put things right because that’s the attitude I want to hear from all my players,” Moyes told the club’s Official Website.
“He had a really hard day because he’s been away on international duty all over Africa for games and he came back really late and had very little training.
“In the last ten minutes he lit it up for us, he started to do better. He was quiet for long periods in the day today, but we were generally quiet and we didn’t play as well as we could have done, especially in the first half. In the second half we played and looked more threatening than we did in the first.”
Despite the display not being overly eye catching, Moyes admits that the win is what is important as we look to kick on and build momentum over a very busy winter schedule.
“Any win away from home in then Premier League is great, and for us we’ve found wins hard to come by, but we found a way of getting through it,” added Moyes.
“We gave away a soft penalty that on another day might not have been given, but anyway, we should resilience and stuck at it and we’ll go back smiling.
“We’re top of the league in Europe and we’ve got another game in midweek and we have a League Cup quarter-final coming up, so we’ve got a lot of things to look forward to.”
