An injury time winner from Andy Carroll moved West Ham out of the relegation zone and started the punishing run of 3 games in 6 days on a positive note. Under David Moyes West Ham have developed the knack of scoring late goals and so it proved again on Tuesday night. West Ham developed a certain amount of steel and that has to becoming from the Manager, our captain Mark Noble proved how important he is to us again against West Brom his influence is huge and he makes those around him better, he recycles the ball better than any of our players and with him getting the ball to the likes of Lanzini and Arnautovic sooner West Ham really look a force going forward.
West Ham face a tough task again on Thursday night facing Tottenham who will have a rested Harry Kane in their team again. Spurs are one of the strongest teams in the League and West Ham will have to be at their very best to get any sort of positive result out of the game.
Antonio is still struggling with an injury and West Ham will hope he is fit for this game as his directness and pace will cause Spurs a problem. As good as Spurs they have struggled at Wembley and if West Ham can remain compact and deny Eriksen and Ali space then I think we can still cause them problems. West Ham are showing a new found persistence and belief and beating local rivals away from home would only increase that. Sundays FA Cup game will not be in Moyes mind at all and I expect to see wholesale changes for that game so I don’t expect Moyes to make too many changes it’s important to keep the momentum from Tuesday a point at Wembley would be a great result at Wembley
