West Ham United defender Arthur Masuaku has revealed he is enjoying life under David Moyes at the London Stadium, and expects the Hammers to make a return to winning ways tomorrow night against Everton.

Moyes returns to his former home Goodison Park looking for his first win at West Ham manager following his appointment as the successor to Slaven Bilic earlier in the month.

Masuaku, who joined the Hammers from Olympiakos in the summer of 2016, says he is looking forward to the crunch match on Merseyside and thinks it could kick-start West Ham’s season after a poor start.

“I think we have been lacking in confidence, but I think once we get a win that will return.” said Masuaku.

“This is an important game. We are fighting with them to get out of this position, so if we win this game it would be a big boost for us.

“We just need to play our game. We need to be more compact, stronger defensively and if we score first that would give us a great platform to win the game.”

The recently called up DR Congo international has also said how he is enjoying life under the Scot having been given the freedom of a more attacking role.

“I enjoyed playing an attacking role,” he added. “When I was younger I played in that position so it’s not new for me.

“My ambition is to play every game. I’ve been involved in the last two, I want to keep going, keep working hard in training and be 100 per cent match fit.

“The new manager has changed some things – he’s more involved at training and if we make a mistake he will stop and explain what happened. With time we will improve a lot under him.”
