Moyes reveals Hammers attacker in squad, duo unavailable

Moyes reveals Hammers attacker in squad, duo unavailable

West Ham - who dominated the entire opening 45 minutes - capitalised on their superiority when the on-loan Portuguese midfielder fired home from close range to put David Moyes' side ahead 11 minutes shy of the interval.

The Hammers are now on a poor run of form and have lost their past two League games against Arsenal and Manchester City by a score of 4-1.

West Ham striker Andy Carroll is in the squad for Saturday's crucial match at Leicester despite being fined after an argument with manager David Moyes.

Although, it must be said, without troubling Adrian in the West Ham goal.

"I had eleven years of, in the main, winning teams, and that's what I want to do", Moyes told his club's official website. Within an hour, it was out there for public consumption, which is also disappointing.

"Some of our performances here have been excellent and some I've wondered 'Where did that come from?'".

Asked to clarify his final remarks, Moyes, whose future at the club beyond this season is unclear, said: "The leaks make it very hard".

"I'm actually now thinking how many points can we get and where can we finish in the league table".

Moyes' off-pitch troubles have played out against the backdrop of his side's precarious position in the league.

Defender Declan Rice was very pleased with his teammates' attitude in the Leicester game and announced the Hammers will once again go for all three points in the two remaining fixtures - against Manchester United and Everton, both at home. There are lots of things we need to do to improve, and we're well aware of that but we probably wouldn't have had the job if there weren't things to be done.

"You take a little bit of a risk when you come to any club that is in the bottom three and the only person who gets the blame for it is the manager".

They are margins off from playing good football and do not have an immeasurable defence.
