MOYES: “the Old proverb says: to be saved, it is necessary to score 40 points”

Mentor “West ham United” David Moyes commented on the victory over “Watford” (3:1) in the match of the Premier League:

“I think we started the game. We scored three important goals. We would like to play better in the second half of the match, but I don’t know what else you would expect. In addition, “Watford” excellent attacked. Fortunately, we stood.

I don’t really like the game in the second half. I wanted we played better but we did the job in the first half. It was a very tense game. The victory served the purpose anyway, and when we scored three goals, this was the charge for us.

I’m trying to make our game harder in defence, because I don’t like to concede two goals per game. The last two games we were better: no missed and although we conceded one goal today, the team played well and we became more confident. But I wish we played better.

Our goal is that we must win the remaining two matches. It’s an old saying: if you can score 40 points, you are always safe from relegation. We need three more points to reach that mark.

For me it is important now that we are on the rise. We know our work: we will have a difficult game at old Trafford with “Manchester United”, but why not play the game and see if we can challenge them.

There’s no holiday now, and I’m not going to celebrate. The situation in which we were during the long months of the season might not look so good. But now we are very close to secure their place in the Premier League.”
