Moyes‘ side are yet to win from eight matches in all competitions this year, with the east Londoners dropping down to eighth in the Premier League table.

It is now three consecutive top-flight defeats for the Europa Conference League holders without a goal scored, while they have conceded 11 times.

Travelling supporters held up ‘Moyes Out’ banners in the away end, with the Scotsman quick to remind the supporters of the success he has brought the club.

Speaking of the fans’ dissatisfaction in his post-match press conference, the 60-year-old said: “I’m pretty long in the tooth, it happens and I don’t think you can please everybody.

“I think it would be hard to say there have been many better times at West Ham.

“Maybe they want something different but, if they’re honest I think they probably have to say it’s been as good a time as they’ve had at the club, winning a trophy and the league positions.

“Maybe they’ve had managers who excite them more, possibly, but the one who’s sitting here wins more.”

He added: “This year already we have beaten Tottenham, Man United, Chelsea, Arsenal, we must not forget there were good times not so long ago.

“We have been without Lucas Paqueta as well for most of the time so there are things that have affected us.”

talkSPORT revealed in December that Moyes, whose contract at the London Stadium expires in the summer, was close to agreeing a new two-and-a-half year contract.
