David Moyes has distanced himself from any blame following West Ham’s heavy 4-0 defeat to Everton, revealing it’s individual mistakes that are costing them.
Speaking after the game as quoted by the Mirrror, the Hammers boss revealed that he believes after three games in charge he has identified the problem and it’s not a “tactical” one.
“The three games we’ve been in, it’s not tactical or not that we are not running enough, it’s just individual mistakes and we have to eradicate them,” declared the 54-year-old.
West Ham found themselves 2-0 down at half-time and Moyes believes the first-half performance of his team let him down.
The Hammers had a golden opportunity to make it 2-1 when they were awarded a penalty, but Manuel Lanzini’s spot-kick was saved by Jordan Pickford.
Following the heavy defeat to the Toffees at Goodison Park, the Hammers are 18th with 10 points, two points adrift of safety.
The Scottish manager has been in charge for the last three games, suffering two defeats but did pick up a point against Leicester City.
Defeat against Everton does mean that Moyes had only won two of his last 22 Premier League games, after his terrible spell at Sunderland.
Fans might be forgiven for thinking that some of the problems are indeed tactical at West Ham.
Moyes faces a tough task getting a win for the Hammers in their next game, as they play undefeated league leaders Manchester City on Sunday.
