We are good enough to stay up – Moyes
West Ham United Manager, David Moyes who has previously overseen an instant turn around in the fortune of the London club after they started the season poorly has vowed to ensure the club stays in the Premier League after a poor run of results.
The Hammers suffered a 3-0 defeat at home to Burnley on Saturday in a dramatic encounter which witnessed a session of the club fans making their dissatisfaction known with a protest at the game was ongoing.
However, despite the troubles that surround the club as fans continue to ask questions of their co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold, Moyes believes the squad is good enough to stay up this season.
He told the club’s official website: “I’ve told the players we are all going to stick together, we’re going to stick our chests out and go again and we’re going to get back to winning ways, and we need to do it quickly.
“We need to play better for longer periods in the game and we’re certainly going to have to defend better. I think we’ve got attacking players who can score, but they didn’t score today.

“So, we’ll get back at it and do the job. When I came in, I didn’t think it was going to be easy, and in the main, the players have been really good, but we weren’t good enough today. But I do believe we are good enough to stay up.”
Moyes felt his side were on top in the first half and was disappointed that the game ended in a heavy defeat.
He added: “We missed two or three great chances in the first half. I thought we played well. In truth, two minutes of madness changed the whole game when it never really looked like we were under a great deal of threat.
“We played well so it’s just disappointing the way it went.”
