West Ham boss David Moyes addressed the media in the aftermath of his side's 1-1 draw with Stoke City last night, and suggested that his team's display against the Potters was one of the best that he has seen since taking over as manager in November 2017, as quoted by Football.London.
The Hammers currently sit in 14th spot in the Premier League table, but are now crucially seven points clear of 18th placed Southampton, with just five league games remaining this season.
The job that Moyes has done since taking over as manager of West Ham in November has been admirable, but the club's fans have not been entirely happy with the brand of football that they have witnessed under the Scot.
The 54-year-old spoke to reporters after his side's draw with Stoke, and suggested that his side's display was one of the best that he has seen during his time in east London, as quoted by Football.London:
"I think the important thing was to make sure we didn't lose tonight and I thought the commitment from the players, energy, to make sure that didn't happen showed late on but their play throughout with the ball was one of the better performances I have seen since I have been here."
Following a brief spell of silence from the media, Moyes said:
"Some of you are surprised by that?"
Cue more silence...
Next up for the Hammers is a trip to Arsenal on Sunday, and that should provide them with a fantastic opportunity for three points, considering the fact that Arsene Wenger is clearly prioritising the Europa League now.
