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.”

To be completely pedantic he didn't belch.

He sharted from his mouth.

He opened his mouth expecting noise to come out but in fact shit came out instead.

Sanè 100% needs to be on the left tomorrow against Zabaleta. Sort of hate to say it but he’ll destroy Zab.

Not sure if we can risk him getting a booking though.

No, we absolutely can't risk sane tomorrow.

Missing him threw us off balance in our attacking play as much as dropping Silva imo.

Having Dave start this one and both start the derby would be best overall.

Good old Moyesie, my favourite rag manager of the last thirty years. It's just a shame for him that he couldn't spot their frailties when he was in charge of them for half a season.

I suspect WHAMs frailties will heavily outweigh ours!

So, Gollum's found our weakness and with tactical masterclass will park the bus and try and lump it forward to pacey players. Pfffft!

He's right though, we've won nothing yet this season, just like every other team so let's at least hit them for six, just to show the fugly Chosen cunt what to expect at the end of the season.

I'd rather risk Sane that Fernandinho. I'd rest Fern ready for the Derby where I think he'll be pivotal to our play.

Let's see if the ref targets them both. Oh, and the mandatory red for Vinnie.

You need the ball first Gollum and then you need to stop us scoring. Simples.
Balotelli......that's a brilliant finish.

I'm with this. Gundo to take Dinho's role and Diaz for Sane ( the latter won't happen I am sure but he would sort Zaba out for sure)
