David Moyes sat down with the media on Thursday afternoon ahead of his first home match in charge of West Ham United.

The Hammers host Leicester City at London Stadium on Friday evening anxious to end a run of five Premier League matches without a win – a record which has seen them drop into the bottom three and led to Moyes’ appointment a little over a fortnight ago.

Leicester City’s away form is open to interpretation.

The Foxes – who have recently made their own managerial change, with Claude Puel replacing Craig Shakespeare – are unbeaten in their four previous matches on the road, recording one win and three draws, and scoring five times in the process.

If Watford’s recent record is anything to go by, West Ham’s visit to Vicarage Road will live up to its ‘Super Sunday’ billing.

Matches involving the Hornets have featured 38 goals this season, a tally only bettered by Manchester City.

But, unlike the Premier League leaders, a poor recent defensive record is largely responsible.

Slaven Bilic pens his exclusive whufc.com column ahead of today's visit of Liverpool...

Hello everyone,

We go into this evening’s match against Liverpool at London Stadium hoping for a much-needed return to winning ways.

As I'm sure you can imagine, the away dressing room at Selhurst Park was not a happy place to be at the end of the game last Saturday.

Bilic and KloppFor a team whose defensive deficiencies have been the subject of endless debate, it is remarkable to think that only three teams – the two Manchester clubs and Tottenham – have kept more clean sheets than Liverpool this season.

Tellingly, however, all four of those shut-outs have been achieved at Anfield, where the Reds have conceded just one goal in over seven-and-a-half hours of football this season.

Fresh from their brilliant comeback against Spurs in the EFL Cup on Wednesday, West Ham have their sights on a second London away win in the space of four days this weekend.

Interestingly, it was actually against Crystal Palace that the Hammers picked up their first three points on the road last season, winning at Selhurst Park for the third successive season.
