West Ham News: Moyes eyes points at Chelsea

11 months ago

In the latest West Ham news, David Moyes says the Hammers need a result at Chelsea as they bid to move clear of danger.

The east Londoners claimed an important 3-0 success over fellow strugglers Southampton last weekend to move five points clear of danger.

Moyes’ side head to Chelsea on Sunday and the manager feels it is crucial they get a result at Stamford Bridge, warning his players they have not secured survival just yet.

“We’re not safe yet. We need more points. Next up is Chelsea and we need some points there,” he told reporters.

“It gave us all a boost to win last weekend. It was an emphatic performance in the first half and it gave us the chance to go on and win the game quite well.

“I’m always basing myself on the fact that 40 points is what we need to get to.

“Hopefully it won’t take as much as that, but to get to 40 is a long way to go for the teams below us. We need to focus on picking up seven or eight points ourselves.”

West Ham are without Michail Antonio for the rest of the season while Manuel Lanzini and James Collins are major doubts.

However, striker Javier Hernandez is available after overcoming an illness and he is available at 16/5 to score at anytime with Betfair.
