West Ham manager David Moyes believes his team has lost its momentum from the previous two great seasons after Sunday’s loss to Everton, which continued their dismal start to the season.
West Ham remained in the Premier League’s bottom three after the 1-0 loss at Goodison Park, with only one victory to their name so far this season.
following their loss on Merseyside, Moyes said that his team has lost the spark that has propelled them into the European places for the past two seasons.
I do not believe we are that far off. The Scottish manager stated. However, we have lost the momentum we had for the past few years. We must retrieve it quickly. Today, the majority of our players have played within the last few of years, and that is the most discouraging aspect.
Neal Maupay’s first goal for the Toffees was sufficient to give Frank Lampard’s team its first victory of the season.
Moyes believed his players did enough to earn a draw, but concedes the loss was due to poor decision-making when in possession of the ball. I believe we did not deserve anything based on our performance in the first half. In the end, however, we deserved a point.
It was more about how poorly we performed. We did not play the ball effectively enough, and we made a number of terrible decisions in the final third. When we got a few half-sniffs near the finish, we were unable to take them.
West Ham’s terrible league campaign stands in stark contrast to their results in Europe, where they presently lead Group B in the Europa League following two consecutive victories. However, the 59-year-old attempted to dispel rumors that West Ham’s form is faltering since the club plays European games on Thursday nights.
‘I’d want to say no… We desire Thursday and Sunday. If it were Wednesday, Saturday, we would be playing in the Champions League. ‘However, if you examine Thursday-Sunday results [of other clubs in prior seasons], you will notice that they may be rather challenging.
Today, it was more a matter of how often we handed the ball away. Everton performed identically in the first half.
