West Ham manager David Moyes admits his players aren’t good enough to mark Chelsea star

West Ham manager David Moyes has shockingly admitted that none of his players aren’t good enough to man-mark Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.

Chelsea striker Eden Hazard has been in phenomenal form in past weeks scoring five goals and making two assists in 12 appearances.

Hazard has helped Chelsea to third in the table since coming back from his ankle injury at the start of the season.

And Moyes has admitted he would man-mark Hazard for the upcoming match at the London stadium today if he had a good enough player to mark the Belgian wizard.

“There are occasions when I would consider man-marking. Hazard is a player who would definitely come into that category.

“The problem is I don’t know if I’ve got someone who is the type of player to be a man-marker. You have heard the saying, ‘If he goes to the toilet, follow him’. I don’t know if I’ve got that.

“But it needs to be people who are athletic and quick. You say to them, ‘Don’t you think about doing anything else, this is your job because he’s that important.

“Looking through our squad, I couldn’t identify anyone who could do that. But tactically it would be a good way to stop him.”

Moyes has failed to get the Hammers back up the table since taking charge with no wins after four games. West Ham are second-to-bottom in the table and are set for a relegation scrap if things don’t improve.

Added to that, Hammers fans will certainly not be too impressed with the Scotsman’s comments about his players.
