West Ham United Gate

The forward says they are looking forward to taking on Tottenham after the international break.

Speaking to the club’s official website, West Ham forward Victor Moses was full of praise for Manuel Lanzini following the draw with Everton.

The young Argentine continued his fine form this season in Saturday’s clash with the Toffees, curling in a fine opening goal to give his side the lead in the game.

It was another top goal from the on loan midfielder since he joined in the summer, with his performances having quickly made him a key player in the side so far.

And Moses says he and the rest of the squad are all behind him and hoping he continues to improve this season.

“Manuel Lanzini is a quality player and has been since the start of the season,” he told

“He scored a great goal and his first touch was fantastic. For him to do that in the Premier League, you can see the quality he has got. We are very pleased with him and hopefully he will keep on improving. Everyone is behind him.”

Next up for the Hammers is a London derby with Tottenham once the international break is over.

It will likely be a big game between the two sides, with them both currently competing for a top four place after strong starts to the season.

The Hammers were disappointed to fail to hold onto their lead in Saturday’s 1-1 draw, but Moses insists that they were pleased with their display as a whole and they will look forward to taking on Spurs next time around.

“We will all look forward to the Spurs encounter and we know it is a big game,” he added.

“We know collectively and as individuals that we can compete against them and come away with the three points. There are no easy games in the Premier League but we are looking forward to it.”
