‘It’s an issue’: David Moyes thinks West Ham have been caught out on set-pieces


David Moyes thinks West Ham have been caught out, with other teams wising up to his side’s prowess from set-pieces.

When Moyes returned to the London Stadium for the second time in 2019, he instantly made the Hammers the most dangerous team from set-pieces in the Premier League.

Since the start of this season though, we have been really poor in that particular department.

Although it must be said, Moyes needs to set his team up with the intent and ambition to win the game with attacking football as well.

Whatever happens, it will be a tough night on Merseyside. And Moyes has opened up about one particular part of his side’s game that has been concerning him…

David Moyes thinks West Ham have been caught out

The Scot addressed the media yesterday ahead of the Hammers’ trip to Liverpool tonight.

And Moyes responded when asked about West Ham’s lack of goals from set-pieces recently, as quoted by Football.London:

We have been looking for better deliveries. We are getting blocked at the moment which is an issue. We don’t feel like the deliveries have been as good as they have been. The runs not quite as good, not attacked the ball. Nearly every Prem team now has a coach who takes set pieces, which means teams and players are getting a bit wiser and a bit better defensively and attacking.

Moyes is right. There has been something not quite right with our attacking set-pieces this season.

We are still yet to score from a corner, unless you include the Michail Antonio goal away at Chelsea – one that occurred in the second phase of play.

It is something that the Hammers players will really need to improve upon, and fast, if they’re to enjoy a successful campaign.

David Moyes has made it very clear that there is a danger that his West Ham team have been found out from set-pieces.

So the onus is now on him and his staff to create solutions to that problem.
