David Moyes, the West Ham United manager, was left disappointed after his side were beaten 3-2 at home by Newcastle United despite having a lot of chances to win the match – and the manager blamed his players for making very silly mistakes.
West Ham had managed to take the lead thanks to Marko Arnautovic but the guests managed to come from behind as Henri Saivet and Mo Diame scored – the hosts had a great chance to equalize the match but Andre Ayew’s penalty was saved and Christian Atsu doubled the lead on the other side. The Hammers managed to score a late goal thanks to Ayew but it just wasn’t enough for making a comeback.
The Scot spoke about the match and said that his side should have won, according to Sky Sports: “It was near enough right from the start. We got the goal – I think from a Newcastle mistake – but after we made two or three terrible mistakes which led to them scoring from a free-kick. All in all, it just seemed like that on the touchline. Mistake after mistake. We then missed a penalty at 2-1 which makes it even more difficult.”Opinion: Martin Odegaard is perfect for the Premier League Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – Given how much he’s been rejected by Real Madrid, we are convinced that Martin Odegaard is perfect for the Premier League.Martin Odegaard is finally…
He continued by adding that he knows about Carrol’s strengths: “Everyone knows how good Andy is. But we gave ourselves too much to do after conceding a farcical third goal. We have to try and get rid of the individual errors. We missed him at home. He’s the one player who can do more on the ball and it was glaringly obvious we missed him here.”
In the end, David Moyes insisted that his side will have to improve in solving these difficult situations: “It was going to be a test with expectations changing towards us winning, but it showed today that we could not do that. It was the manner of losing the goals. The third was a catastrophe, the way it came about. We don’t score the penalty, and those things can make a big difference.”
