While much of the attention will naturally focus around what David Moyes is managing to do with the West Ham first-team, the Scotsman has praised the club as a whole as their upward trajectory.

Sunday brought another famous result to the London Stadium as Moyes overcame Liverpool to move into third ahead of the international break only a few weeks after the penalty shoot-out win over Manchester City in the Carabao Cup.

In many ways, last season looks to have been a dress rehearsal for West Ham. Largely played in empty stadia, the team are now taking the progress they made in the midst of the joyless experience of football dealing with the pandemic to a live audience, who themselves are loving pretty much every minute.

Speaking to the club’s official website after the game, Moyes moved to praise everyone involved while hailing West Ham as a “great” place to be.

“We’ve got a great club, we really have, and we have a club which I said right at the start that had so much room for improvement and development,” he said.

“That first has to come on the pitch because supporters want to see what’s happening on the pitch. We brought in a few players, which have made a big difference.

“We’ve got more international players here than we’ve had for a long time and credit has to go to everybody, but let’s be fair, the big one is the players – they’re doing a magnificent job.

“The staff too, Kev and Nev (assistant coaches Kevin Nolan and Paul Nevin), the boys have helped get another couple in from set pieces again today so it’s great work.”
