West Ham United are currently sitting in the relegation zone.
Hammers boss David Moyes sat down for an exclusive interview with BBC Radio Five Live's Monday Club last night, and shared how his priority will be to organise his side defensively, insisting that his players absolutely cannot get away with not tracking back.
The Scot has been given an opportunity to repair his somewhat damaged reputation by the club's owners, and he will surely be under no illusion as to the size of the task that awaits him at the London Stadium.
The 54-year-old's successful spell at Everton was followed by failed stints at Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland, and he was far from a popular appointment in east London amongst the Hammers faithful.
And Moyes told BBC Radio Five Live's Monday club last night how he will be trying to instil some structure and discipline back into the West Ham players, and make them work more as a unit together:
"We don’t want to stop the attacking play because we’ve got good attacking players as well. But we can’t get away with not running back. We can’t get away with not doing the jobs we’ve got to do. Ultimately, they’ve got to be a bit more humble for each other, work for the team, and score goals together and defend together."
The Hammers currently have the worst defensive record in the Premier League, with 23 goals conceded in 11 outings thus far, and if Moyes is to have any chance whatsoever of steering his side to safety, that will be an area that they undoubtedly need to improve upon.
