Moyes wants West Ham playing like Tottenham and Chelsea in the future

Moyes wants West Ham to play like Tottenham and Chelsea

West Ham manager David Moyes says he wants his side to play “like Tottenham, like Chelsea” if he remains in charge beyond the end of this season.

Moyes, 54, has guided the side out of the relegation zone and up to 15th place in the Premier League since he was appointed in November.

He signed a short-term contract following the sacking of Slaven Bilic.

“I’ve got an idea in my head how I want it to look,” Moyes told the BBC’s Football Focus.

“I want us to go to those teams and say, ‘we’re having a game with you and we’re going to see if we can beat you’,” added Moyes.

“At the moment, we just don’t have the same level of quality of players as those teams do, but I’m saying that for probably every other team bar the top six or seven in the Premier League.”

The former Everton, Manchester United and Sunderland manager lost three of his first four games in charge as he got to grips with his new side.

However, since the start of December, Moyes has led the side to a win over Chelsea, draws against Arsenal and Tottenham and a narrow defeat at Manchester City.

West Ham have lost once in their last eight Premier League games.

Will West Ham do any transfer business in January?

The January transfer window gives them an opportunity to strengthen and it has also been reported they would be happy to sell striker Javier Hernandez.
