Stats: Victor Moses enjoys outstanding West Ham debut, provides exactly what Bilic needed

Victor Moses was superb on his West Ham debut against Newcastle.

West Ham recorded their third victory of the season on Monday, beating Newcastle United 2-0 at Upton Park in a comfortable win.

Two goals from summer signing Dimitri Payet handed the Hammers a first home win of the campaign, with the Frenchman dazzling the Upton Park crowd with a virtuoso display.

However, another player captured the hearts of the West Ham faithful with his performance against Newcastle - deadline day signing Victor Moses.

The Nigerian international, 24, signed on a season-long loan deal from Chelsea two weeks ago, but due to the international break, could only make his debut last night.

Moses impressed throughout, and here are some stats which show just how Moses made such a huge impact on the game...

Moses rattled the crossbar for the second goal, with Payet tapping in the rebound, but on the ball, the winger was a threat throughout.

With six successful dribbles, Moses took on and beat the Newcastle defence with ease, while with 12 passes in the final third and 48 touches, Moses was always looking to get on the ball and cause havoc around the Newcastle penalty area.

The stats prove just how impressive Moses was against Newcastle, and also highlight just what an ideal signing he is for West Ham.

In the opening games of the season, West Ham had a lack of width and were forced to play a narrow 4-4-2 diamond, with Bilic desperate to add wingers in order to play the 4-2-3-1 he had success with at Besiktas.

Now, Moses possesses the blistering pace, dribbling ability and quality in the final third to give Bilic exactly what he needed - making him a potentially perfect signing for West Ham, even if he is only on loan.
