West Ham boss David Moyes: We must challenge for top 4

West Ham boss David Moyes says they should be targeting a top four finish.

The Hammers will travel to Everton on Sunday, with former Everton boss Moyes looking to improve on his record of two wins from 15 Premier League matches against sides managed by Rafa Benitez.

“I can speak because I'm the manager of West Ham and my plan is to challenge the top four," Moyes said.

“I'm hoping I can challenge the top four and maybe catch one, maybe topple one. That's what I want to do. That's what I've let the players know in terms of where I'm aiming.

“I can only speak for Everton as (their) ex-manager. I can't speak for Rafa. But Everton is a big club, with big traditions and they've challenged the top four, certainly in my time there.

“There was a constant challenge. It was really difficult to break in, but we did it on one occasion. So I think Rafa might be thinking the exact same as I did at the time, he may be thinking even more."
