'Moyes effect' results in small improvement


Filed: Thursday, 29th March 2018
By: Staff Writer


David Moyes' first 19 Premier League games in charge of West Ham have resulted in a minor improvement to West Ham United's form since parting company with Slaven Bilic.

West Ham's 3-0 defeat at home to Burnley in their most recent Premeir League outing meant that Moyes had been in charge for 19 league meetings since succeeding the Croat - exactly half-a-season in terms of divisional fixtures.

During that period his team has managed to secure an average of just 1.11 points per game - which represents a minor improvement to the 0.89 points per game Bilic secured during his final 19 Premier League fixtures.

However that form replicated over the course of an entire season would leave the Hammers on just 42 points (the number with which the club were relegated at the end of the 2002/03 season) and fighting relegation - as is the case now.

The forme Everton and Manchester United boss, who is working on a short-term contract has achieved Premier League wins over just five teams so far since joining the Hammers - those being Chelsea, Stoke City, West Bromwich Albion, Huddersfield and Watford.

A sixth win - a 1-0 defeat of League One Shrewsbury in an FA Cup third round replay - was achieved in extra time at the Olympic Stadium thanks to youngster Reece Burke's very late winner.

Additionally Moyes' average points per game figure falls slightly when taking into account all fixtures, including EFL and FA Cup dates. In total he has taken charge of 23 matches, with an equivalent average points tally of 1.09.
