Moyes: I didn’t want to put my name to the first half

David Moyes admits that West Ham “didn’t deserve anything” from their 4-0 loss to Everton in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

A Wayne Rooney hat-trick and another goal from Ashley Williams sealed a heavy win for the Toffees as the Hammers remain in the relegation zone.

Manuel Lanzini had a chance to get West Ham back into the match at 2-0 but he missed the penalty and shortly after Rooney extended Everton’s lead.

“The second half at least, I could put my name to the performance,” Moyes said. “I didn’t want to put my name to the first half, that was for sure.

“We made changes at half-time, it made us better and look, tonight we weren’t good in the first half, so we didn’t deserve anything, but I thought when we needed small things to go for us, they didn’t.

“I mean, Wayne’s penalty was saved by Joe Hart, but it came back to him. Tonight, Lanzini’s was saved, so from that point of view small things like that didn’t go for us.

“I thought actually for the third goal, Michail Antonio drove into the box and I think he needed a decision whether to shoot or slide a pass, he made a pass and it was a bad pass. It went up the pitch and launched it clear and Joe [Hart] came out and before you know it, we’re 3-0 down and I didn’t think we deserved that scoreline, not on that second half performance.”
