Moyes slams Hammers’ errors after Newcastle defeat

Hammers boss David Moyes admits he has been left fuming by the way in which his side lost against Newcastle United.

West Ham went into the game with a good run of form against a struggling Newcastle side who they were favourites to beat.

But despite taking the lead through Marko Arnautovic, Newcastle fought back to get the score to 2-1. Andre Ayew then missed a penalty in what would have levelled the scoring and put the momentum back in West Ham’s favour, before the Toon went 3-1 up.

Ayew did get a chance to make amends for his penalty miss, and pulled the score back to 3-2, but it was too little too late for Moyes’ side.

Asked to summarise West Ham’s performance at the end of the game, Moyes said: “Not a good one that’s for sure. It was a game full of errors, I just keep looking at the goals we’ve conceded and the mistakes we’ve made.

“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.

“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.”
