David Moyes, the manager of West Ham United, was “really annoyed” that his team didn’t get going until they were down a goal at Everton on Sunday.
Neal Maupay’s goal in the 53rd minute gave Everton the win and put West Ham in the relegation zone at 18th. It was West Ham’s fifth league loss of the season.
West Ham has only one win in seven league games. On Oct. 1, they will host Wolverhampton Wanderers, who are 17th in the league.
West Ham displayed greater energy following Maupay’s goal, with replacement Said Benrahma hitting the crossbar, but Moyes was “very frustrated” that they were unable to lift their level sooner.
