West Ham United forward Victor Moses feels his team-mates can take a lot of positives from the 1-1 draw with Everton and says they are already looking forward to the big London derby against Tottenham on November 22.
Moses was voted man of the match and produced an impressive display as the Hammers had to settle for a point at the Boleyn Ground.
After suffering a disappointing 2-0 defeat against Watford, Slaven Bilic wanted a response from his players and they showed an immediate reaction.
Manuel Lanzini fired the home side into the lead in spectacular fashion midway through the first half, but conceded just before half-time when Romelu Lukaku scored against the Hammers once again.
Despite failing to hold onto their lead, Moses says the players were pleased with their performance and feels they will only grow stronger over the international break as they prepare for the derby clash at White Hart Lane in two-weeks time.
Moses said: “We will all look forward to the Spurs encounter and we know it is a big game.
“We know collectively and as individuals that we can compete against them and come away with the three points. There are no easy games in the Premier League but we are looking forward to it.
“Our heads were held high in the dressing room and I thought we had a great game. We knew Everton were a good side with the strikers they have got, but we competed well against them.
“It was a silly mistake that we made for their goal and that cost us. Apart from that I thought we played well and had a few chances that we could have converted.”
Moses enjoyed seeing Lanzini get on the scoresheet once again and feels the Argentine forward will only grow stronger as the season progresses.
Moses added: “Manuel Lanzini is a quality player and has been since the start of the season. The fans have been behind him and has done a great job for the Club.
“He scored a great goal and his first touch was fantastic. For him to do that in the Premier League, you can see the quality he has got.
“We are very pleased with him and hopefully he will keep on improving with the more games he plays and the more experience he gets. Everyone is behind him.
“We all know that Payet is a great player and in football you are going to get injuries. We had to re-shape and Valencia also got injured. It was one of those days but hopefully they will come back stronger.”
