David Moyes claims he has spotted Manchester City's weakness - and reveals how West Ham will exploit it
Manchester City are unbeaten in the Premier League this season whilst Moyes West Ham side are without a league win in their last 7 games
David Moyes claims he has spotted weaknesses in Pep Guardiola’s runaway league leaders.
And he insists the Spaniard’s Manchester City side have more to do before they are ranked among the Premier League’s greats.
Moyes’ West Ham side head to the Etihad Stadium tomorrow rooted in the bottom three and on the back of a crushing 4-0 defeat at Everton.
And they will be confronted by a City team that has dropped just two points all season – and bidding to register a 13th successive league win.
The Hammers boss knows the odds are stacked heavily against his men, but insists Guardiola’s side have frailties.
Moyes said: “I wouldn’t say they have a long way to go, but they have not done anything yet – they have not won the Premier League yet.
“And there has been some great teams in the Premier League, who have won it over the years.
“Maybe at the end people will say they are a great team, but until then you can’t really say so.
“I think they have frailties. The style they play means they can leave space in behind them.
“The coach admits to the frailties and knows where the weaknesses are. But he tries to make it so difficult for the opposition to get to the weaknesses.
“We have a couple of players with pace, who can cause them problems if we can get them in the right areas, like Michail Antonio and Arthur Masuaku.
“If we can, at the right moment, cause them problems, then hopefully we might find we are not getting all the pressure. You have to be brave enough, pass, and keep the ball when you can.”
West Ham’s cause won’t be helped by the absence of injured defenders Jose Fonte, James Collins and Sam Byram, while Winston Reid is a major doubt.
Moyes has so far collected just one point from three games in charge, and added: “I was hoping it would be a bit easier, to be honest.
“In football, you just never know. It’s a big task and a big job, but it’s a good challenge. I think we’ll be OK, we have got a good team.”
Gollum you fool
