West Ham Manager Opens Up On Andre Ayew's Departure

Moyes was disappointed with the ugly scenes and called on fans to unite as the Hammers, who are just three points above the drop in 16th, battle to avoid relegation. Burnley are [3.65] to win. "To get to 40 points at this stage of the season is very pleasing and the lads have earned the right to do that".

It took only 8 minutes for West Ham to fall behind in this game after which they rarely threatened to get back on even terms. After conceding 54 goals in 29 games, David Moyes' side now have the worst defensive record in the league.

Angelo Ogbonna, however, is set to return following illness and James Collins could be back from a hamstring strain.

Gold and Sullivan left their seats with five minutes of the game remaining, having spent around 10 minutes listening to fans furiously singing that they had "destroyed" the club. That's typical of the bottom end of the league at this time.

"It is essential that everybody who plays or attends a Premier League football match can do so safely", a Premier League statement read. The pair met four times last season when Moyes was manager of Sunderland but could not get the better of his opponent in any of the quartet of fixtures, losing two and drawing two.

As for the game itself, Moyes felt West Ham paid the price for not taking their chances when they were on top in the first half. Barnes also scored in that game and will be the danger man for the Hammers. With Wood and Barnes proving too much for Everton to handle, they grabbed a goal each to fire their team ahead and to a deserved three points. Manuel Lanzini will look to create for Marko Arnautovic. The Kiwi scored the victor against Everton last weekend and contributed a late equaliser against the Hammers earlier in the season.
