West Ham United manager David Moyes has told Football.London what he told his players after the defeat to Arsenal on Saturday.

The Hammers suffered a 1-0 loss at the hands of Arsenal away from home at the Emirates Stadium in North London.

Moyes has shared what he told his West Ham players in the dressing room after the loss to the Gunners.

Moyes told Football.London: “Well, I think they played really well the players and I have told them that, really well.

“You think of the performance at Liverpool and we played well there, played well against Southampton and then again today but we have only taken three points from those three games.

“So, I’ve said to them I am pleased to say well done but I am not going to keep doing it until we start getting more points. I’d rather play not so well but winning games because that’s what we need, we need the points.”
