West Ham manager Moyes remains optimistic despite late defeat to Leverkusen

Posted : 12 April 2024

Despite suffering a setback with two late goals in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final against Bayer Leverkusen, David Moyes remains resolute about West Ham's prospects in the competition. While Jonas Hofmann's late strike, followed by Victor Boniface's header in injury time, tilted the balance in Leverkusen's favor, Moyes emphasized that his team is still very much in contention. Despite the formidable challenge posed by Leverkusen, Moyes expressed optimism, acknowledging the need for a stellar performance in the upcoming leg.


Throughout the match, West Ham exhibited commendable defensive prowess, frustrating Leverkusen's efforts to find the back of the net. Despite Leverkusen's dominance in possession, West Ham's disciplined defense managed to limit their scoring opportunities. Additionally, West Ham posed a threat on the counter, particularly through the pace and strength of Michail Antonio, who created several promising chances, including one for Mohammed Kudus in the first half.


Despite Lukasz Fabianski's commendable efforts between the posts, making key saves to keep Leverkusen at bay, West Ham ultimately succumbed to Leverkusen's relentless pressure late in the game. Leverkusen's unbeaten streak extended to an impressive 42 matches with their victory, but Moyes remains undeterred, urging his team to regroup and rally for the next leg. With determination and the support of their fans, West Ham aims to turn the tide in their favor and mount a comeback in the Europa League quarter-final.
