West Ham boss David Moyes admitted that the goalless draw against Brighton at the London Stadium last night wasn’t overly pleasing on the eye.

It was a dogged performance from our Hammers, as we had to dig in and at times defend for long periods to deny the visitors – although another clean sheet was a demonstration of the much improved defensive displays of late.

The stalemate was Moyes’ side 4th consecutive clean sheet in the Premier League, which has seen 3 victories against Wolves, Manchester United and Arsenal – meaning our Hammers have picked up 10 points from a possible 12.

Moyes though confessed that the draw against Brighton wasn’t overly exciting to watch, but the point is a vital one as we look to continue our push for European football again next season.

“The defensive boys played brilliantly, they really did,” Moyes told the clubs Official Website.

“They did brilliantly well. I thought we played better in the first half with the ball than we did in the second half. We turned it over three or four times at the start of the second half and we weren’t having the ball.

“We were then nearly playing on scraps and counter-attacking, which wasn’t overly nice to watch, but it was a good point to get.”

The Irons manager also stated that the 1st half of the campaign has been a real positive one for the club, but the fixture schedule soon allowing a break, as our next Premier League fixture coming in 18 days time when we face Sheffield United. Although this Sunday our Hammers host Bristol City in the 3rd Round of the FA Cup.

“It’s been a fair programme for this time of year for what it could be, but our programme before that wasn’t overly fair,” added Moyes.

“You could argue about fairness in terms of not being able to play Mohammed Kudus or Nayef Aguerd tonight, but other teams could play their African players.

“But the players have been able to have a day or two off here or there, which has been benefited them, and it looks like we might be able to have a bit of a break with the week we’ve got coming up and the players deserve it for the really good first half of a season they’ve had.”
