West Ham boss Moyes slams Premier League scheduling after Leeds defeat

David Moyes has slammed the Premier League's scheduling after West Ham lost to Leeds United on Sunday.

The Hammers twice equalised but eventually went down 3-2 at London Stadium.

West Ham were forced to play a rescheduled game against Norwich on Wednesday, and Moyes thinks the match impacted their performance against Leeds.

Moyes said: "I think it was a huge factor today.

"We didn't agree with it from the start why we had to play Norwich [midweek]. We've missed one League game and not by our doing and it was made to go in at this time in the season.

"We've just come out of a busy Christmas period, like Leeds United and everybody else, but Leeds had two games to play and they weren't asked to play in midweek and we were.

"Cannot understand it. It only tells me that the people that are doing that can't understand what recovery means, what it means to play games on a regular basis and the people who are putting the games in place are getting that wrong."
