West Ham United manager David Moyes said his side have “got to get goals all around the team” in preparation for their game with AFC Bournemouth on Monday night as they look to win five successive home games for the first time since 2012.
The Scotsman also stated his respect for Bournemouth, stating: “Every game in the Premier League, no matter who you play, is a test”.
After his side have now gone 15 Premier League games without a clean sheet away from home, Bournemouth’s interim-manager Gary O’Neil said: “We obviously still need to improve in some areas, that’s always the case”.
He also stated that his team have “scored a decent amount” considering they have only just been promoted and that they will “continue to work hard” in order to gain more points in their quest for survival.
Only two points separate these sides, and West Ham will go 10th with a victory.
That would place them above Bournemouth in the league following their dismal start to the season after winning just one of their first five games and being 12 points worse off than they were at this stage last season.
