David Moyes confident Patirce Evra can make an impact at West Ham

David Moyes confident Patirce Evra can make an impact at West Ham

On Saturday, Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic scored as the Hammers put further distance between themselves and the relegation zone with a 2-0 victory over Watford. "But we nullified them", the Scot told reporters after the game. To draw level with them - Watford have been above us all the time I've been here - we drew level with them today. We want more ups than downs.

West Ham were reportedly willing to listen to offers in January for the Mexican striker but an injury to Andy Carroll and the sale of Diafra Sakho to Rennes meant that Chicharito would stay at the East London club in the hope of guiding them to relegation safety.

They have failed to keep a clean sheet in eight league fixtures since a three-match run without conceding a goal in December. "Hopefully we're getting closer to getting those players available".

Michail Antonio's left wing cross found Hernandez at the back post and he got away from his marker, Marvin Zeegelaar, before he nodded home.

The result was secured in the 78th minute when the home side got a little bit of luck with Jose Holebas' mishit clearance falling perfectly for Arnautovic to tap home and double his side's lead. We are not letting him off the hook, he's got a bit to go.

He said: "I'm going to delegate the whole thing to a huge analysis and scouting system with a new head of recruitment. When you see it again, it's probably a penalty kick on him as well". Mark Noble will look to control midfield, while Joao Mario and Marko Arnautovic also play.

"But I must help my team and I must work to gain the manager's trust". Hes doing a really good job for us.

Nevertheless, Moyes was only given a contract until the end of the season, and it's becoming clear that the Irons are gearing up for a longer term commitment. I think we can do better, I am sure.

"We'll have a massive video analysis department, increase the scouting department, every player will be looked at five or six times". We tried in the second half.

"We tried to change the shape of the team, playing with 3-5-2, playing 4-2-3-1 and 4-4-2 but we didn't create chances".
