David Moyes states that West Ham’s fight for survival will be far from over if they defeat Burnley.
The Hammers took four points off the drop zone after a win over Chelsea and a draw at Newcastle and could add more room with a win on Wednesday night between themselves and the bottom three.
Boss Moyes, however, said: “I wish it was too easy, to sum up.
We have difficult competition in Burnley, tough opposition after that, and all we can do is try to play as well as we have to get stronger. We ‘re always looking for more. We ‘re scoring goals that we weren’t doing in the first couple of games. We ‘re now looking at us to better defend and keep the goals rolling. We ‘re creating opportunities, I think sometimes football has been fine, but I also think we can build on that. But as you know, the main thing is to ensure we get out of trouble and win the games. We have a lot of work to do to keep our noses upfront. We plan to stay upfront.”All the games matter, the same question was asked before we went to Newcastle and the importance of it.
He added: “What we’re trying to do is concentrate on the next game, play as best we can in tough situations for players without fans having to watch too many games in a short time. So hopefully the players will remain focused and continue to play the way they’ve been doing.”
Moyes must apply a late fitness test to document Sebastien Haller signing with the striker back in training after a hip injury (via the official website of West Ham).”Haller is doing better, he practiced yesterday and we’re going to see how he’s coming along but he’s certainly getting closer to being available,” Moyes said.
Felipe Anderson is also sidelined and Robert Snodgrass has a back injury due to a minor hamstring infection.
