David Moyes demands his West Ham side to be more prolific, claiming they ‘miss too many opportunities’ having scored just nine Premier League goals ahead of Bournemouth clash
- West Ham have scored nine goals from their opening eleven games this season
- Manager David Moyes has challenged his players to be clinical in front of goal
- The Hammers will welcome Bournemouth at the London Stadium on Monday
David Moyes has urged his misfiring West Ham to be more clinical in front of goal, starting with the visit of Bournemouth on Monday night.
‘We’re missing too many opportunities,’ Moyes said. ‘We need more goals across every area of the pitch. We’ve spread them around over the last couple of years. We went a long time last year when we didn’t score many but we’ve got to get them all around the team.’
Gianluca Scamacca is West Ham’s top scorer in all competitions with six — two of which have come in the Premier League.

Bournemouth have problems of their own, having managed fewer shots than any other side in the Premier League this season. Their average of eight per game is the lowest on record in a single campaign since 1997-98, but Gary O’Neil believes his team are capable of hurting West Ham on Monday night.
O’Neil remains in temporary charge, having suffered his first defeat in his seventh game as caretaker against Southampton on Wednesday.
‘I’m proud to stand at the front with the boys in every game,’ he said.
