Premier League: David Moyes revels in victory
West Ham United manager David Moyes has waited 11 long years for a Premier League victory against Liverpool and few would begrudge his joyous celebrations after it finally arrived in a memorable 3-2 win for his side on Sunday.
Moyes had not tasted victory against the Anfield club in his last 14 league meetings as manager of Everton, Manchester United, Sunderland and West Ham, losing 10 and drawing four.
But he finally cracked the code and there was no doubting West Ham deserved it as an own goal by Liverpool keeper Alisson and goals by Pablo Fornals and Kurt Zouma after the break sent West Ham above Juergen Klopp’s side into third place in the standings.
“It’s been hard to beat Liverpool over my career, they’ve been a very good side, so I was very pleased to get it today,” said Moyes, who is in his second spell as West Ham manager after saving them from relegation in his first.
“I’m hugely proud (to have turned West Ham around),” Moyes said. “The way the players have gone about it, you talk about me turning it around... Now we’re pushing for Europe.”
