David Moyes: ‘I Want Us To Challenge Top-Four Teams’

Posted by

After a barnstorming contest at the London Stadium, West Ham has leapfrogged Liverpool into third place. Klopp praised the winners’ ruthlessness from set pieces and on the counter-attack, but he believed the game was ultimately determined by the way in which his team fell behind after just four minutes and the decision not to dismiss Aaron Cresswell for a challenge on Jordan Henderson immediately after.

This was David Moyes’ first Premier League victory over Liverpool as a manager. After conceding an equalizer from a Trent Alexander-Arnold free-kick shortly before half-time, the hosts had to show resiliency. It was a setback for West Ham, but they bounced back superbly, grabbing the lead again through Fornals’ score on 67 minutes and sealing the victory shortly after with Kurt Zouma’s header from another corner.“Liverpool played some great stuff, but we dug in,” Moyes said. “I want us to challenge whichever teams are in the top four, I have laid that down to the players.”
