Their Premier League pursuit met a hurdle last weekend when they lost to Wolves on the road, but the West Ham manager’s belief in his team to come out on top of Group H hasn’t wavered.
The Hammers, who are undefeated in their European campaign this season, travel to the Austrian capital to face Rapid Vienna, currently last in the group H standings.
A win will guarantee them first place and escape meeting a Champions League relegated team, so Moyes’ boys will seek nothing but three points from the Austrian giants.
If not in Austria, though, the former Manchester United coach is sure his team will get the needed points in their last group game against current second-placed Dinamo Zagreb. “…I am confident that along the line we will take the points we need from the final two games to win the group,” Moyes assured.
With the Austrian national lockdown being a blessing in disguise for the Hammers, who were set to play without their fans following disciplinary measures, the EPL side must use the opportunity to get three points.
The Londoners will play Manchester City, Brighton, and Chelsea, respectively, after their Vienna match, so perhaps they won’t be as fit to play Dinamo Zagreb in December, leaving tomorrow’s game as the best chance to get full (or any) points in the group.
