West Ham Manager, Moyes: I’d Be Disappointed If We Didn’t Qualify For Europe

David Moyes admits he would be disappointed if West Ham United didn’t qualify for European football.

The Hammers moved into fifth – three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea – with a win over Burnley on Monday.

“It was a game we deserved to win,” Moyes said. “It was a bit difficult in the end but we played really well. We created opportunities and didn’t take them. Overall we did a really good job.

“Michail Antonio made a great impact. He’s come back in good condition, good shape. A couple of times he took on opportunities when he should have passed. He’s a big influece in the team and we’re glad to have him back.

“We didn’t deserve to go 1-0 down. I thought we started well and were the better team. We gave away a cheap penalty kick. Great resilience, credit to the players that we got the goal back quickly.

“I’m hoping with four games to go people still talk about us and the Champions League. We want to take it down to the final day and try to sneak in. It will probably need us to win all four games. Europe would be an incredible achievement. I think I’ll be disappointed if we don’t get there now.

“Most of the games this season we’ve played very well. We’ve missed some players through injury which has affected us. We’ll keep going, we’re not going away.”

He added: “Four games to go, it’s great. I want to smile about it. I’ve been here before – we’ll probably have to win the four games. If we played the way we played tonight we’ll give most teams a game.”
