West Ham United v Sheffield United – Premier League – London Stadium – Reaction

West Ham United 2-0 Sheffield United 

West Ham United boss David Moyes celebrated his nine-hundredth game in the managerial hot seat with a return to Premier League winning ways and a clean sheet as Sheffield United were eased out at the London Stadium.

Indeed, the East Londoners were home and hosed by half-time thanks to goals from Jarrod Bowen and Tomas Soucek: “It was a good win. I’m really pleased,” Moyes enthused.

“It was a day when some people were expecting an easy game, but as a manager, I’ve never found an easy game, that’s for sure.

“I think if anybody looks at the result they’ll say it was a great result for West Ham, whether it was 2-0 or more.

“If you look at the results in the Premier League today, there are no guarantees. It’s a strange league and we did a really good job to get a good victory.”

The Scotsman continued: “I was pleased with the way we started the game and we could have been four or five up at half-time.

“We missed a couple of chances and we had a couple of corners we looked very close to getting on the end of.

“There were things we liked in the first half with the chances we made, but in the second half, we looked as if we just ran out of energy.

“Maybe the midweek League Cup game took its toll, not just generally on all the players, but particularly on some of them.”
