Tomorrow afternoon, Arsenal will visit West Ham United, and David Moyes has been interacting with the media in advance of the match.
David Moyes has already guided West Ham to two victories over Arsenal this season—one in the FA Cup and one in the Premier League.
Our last Premier League victory was at the Emirates on December 28th, but since then, the Hammers have played terrible. A win tomorrow would greatly boost our chances of finishing in the top six.
However, in his media interviews up to tomorrow’s match at London Stadium, Moyes has been up to his usual shenanigans.
Sometimes it seems like the Scot can’t control himself.
Intriguing remarks on Arsenal made by David Moyes prior to the match against West Ham
At his pre-match press conference yesterday afternoon, the Scot had a conversation with the media.
Furthermore, Moyes highlighted how challenging it will be for his team to play Arsenal tomorrow, according to WHUFC.com:
I guess I would have been happy if you had handed me one of the victories over an Arsenal team of such caliber. Two is excellent. We would want to make three, so that would be fantastic if we could. Although we live with them, we are also aware of their excellent teamwork. They are a very good team that has made it difficult for them to win the Premier League.
But why not adopt a more upbeat mindset going into the game?
When his squad plays the big boys, Moyes constantly underestimates their chances.
That being said, is it really surprising that he has a horrible record against them? The Gunners are a great team, as was already mentioned. They have, however, shown this season that they are far from flawless.
We’ve already won against them in the Carabao Cup and on the road in the Premier League. They have also lost in league play to Fulham, Aston Villa, and Newcastle.
My problem with this is that people will begin to believe it if you tell them repeatedly how hard a game will be.
