Moyes claims West Ham players 'let me down' in Everton defeat

West Ham United manager David Moyes has slammed his star players after Sunday’s 1-0 loss to Everton.

The Hammers are in the relegation with just four points from seven games this season.

“We had a game on Thursday night and we are still trying to put new players in and find out a lot about them – we found out little bits,” Moyes said.

“But it was mainly about the players I know about in the main who let me down at different times with poor play overall.

“The players who played last year are down on their level as well as us introducing new players. We have shown signs we were getting back to it but I don’t think we did today.

“We couldn’t put two or three passes together and when we got anything in the final third it was nearly always the wrong decision. The last 20 minutes, we had some chances to get an equaliser.”

He added: “We have to keep going and keep putting the work in, the players have responded well in the last two or three years and there is no reason they cannot reach those heights again.

“If you’re not scoring lots of goals you have to make sure you are a really good defensive team. We have got a good enough team but we need to start showing it, that’s for sure.”
