David Moyes feels Leeds game was a “missed opportunity”

West Ham manager David Moyes says his side deserved more than one point in their game against Leeds on Wednesday night.

Leeds and West Ham drew 2-2 in their Premier League clash at Elland Road. Wilfried Gnonto gave Leeds the lead in the first half before Lucas Paqueta’s first goal for West Ham levelled the game. Early in the second half, Gianluca Scamacca gave the Hammers the lead with a long-range goal, but Rodrigo responded tying the score to end the game in a stalemate.

Moyes says his side missed a big chance to win on Wednesday:

“I actually felt like we missed an opportunity to get all three, I really do,” said the under fire Irons manager.

“We made a couple of passing mistakes at the back, I thought we looked okay but when we went a goal down, I thought here we go again. We’ve lost a couple of goals now from throw-ins, terrible.

“Two tonight from thrown ins, two tonight against Brentford from throw ins. It’s obviously something we need to try and do better at.”

Step in the right direction

“Even though he was displeased with the result, Moyes says it was a positive:

It felt like a step in the right direction. Getting a point away from home at Leeds United is a good result for lots of teams and it is for us at the moment. I actually felt like we missed an opportunity to get all three, I really do.”

Leeds face Aston Villa next, while West Ham take on Wolves.
