West Ham see off Burnley
West Ham returned to league action on Saturday afternoon.
The Hammers headed into the tie in decent form, going unbeaten in their last four outings across all competitions.
And vs Burnley, David Moyes and co. were able to continue that fine run with a key three points.
Michail Antonio fired the hosts into the lead with just nine minutes on the clock and West Ham were then able to hold onto that lead for the remainder of the 90 minutes.
Said win moved the Londoners up to 9th in the league and within three points of the top five, though most sides above them do still have a game in hand.
Moyes responds to Rice transfer speculation
Following their latest triumph, David Moyes has spoken to the media.
When doing so, the Scotsman was drawn on recent transfer speculation surrounding Declan Rice.
Both Manchester United and Chelsea were linked with the promising, young midfielder earlier this week.
However, when commenting on these links post-Burnley, Moyes was quick to play them down, stating that they are not true:
“They’re not true [rumours of a bid], we’ve had no contact from either of those clubs regarding Declan and we wouldn’t want any anyway.
“He’s doing great for us, he’s a big leader now, he’s taken a lot of the weight off Mark Noble. He’s turning out to be a really good player but also a really good boy and good around the club.”
