Hammers boss David Moyes wrote a column for the club's official website, and shared what he told his players following their 1-1 draw with Leicester City on Friday, insisting that they have further room for improvement.

West Ham still find themselves in all sorts of trouble, as they languish in 18th position in the Premier League table, after their woeful return of just 10 points from their opening 13 league outings thus far.

The east London outfit's awful run of form coincided with Slaven Bilic's sacking a couple of weeks ago, and the announcement of David Moyes' appointment as the Croatian's replacement did not go down well at the London Stadium.

Friday's performance against the Foxes has given Hammers fans renewed optimism though, as they head into the Christmas period, and Moyes will be delighted with the manner in which the London Stadium backed his side.

The Scot explained how he told his players that they could do better following Friday night's draw, when writing his column for WHUFC.com:

"I’ve said to the players that I thought that work was good, but that our play and our passing in the final third could be better. We had some good play, but I thought we could have had some moments of even better play."

Next up for West Ham is a trip to one of Moyes' old clubs Everton on Wednesday night, and with both clubs in desperate need of a victory, the tension at Goodison Park will be palpable.

And if the Hammers can return to east London with all three points, things will start to look a lot rosier at the London Stadium.
