​West Ham boss Moyes unfazed as Leeds announce team

West Ham boss David Moyes was asked about Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa taking the uncommon step of announcing his team in his news conference yesterday.

"Very often the teams were named beforehand in Spain," said Moyes, who managed Real Sociedad in 2014-15.

"We see it in other sports too. It doesn't happen in our sport for different reasons, but overall, does it make it easier? I don't think so because they're a good team.

"We'll keep our team until we're ready to announce it and we'll prepare our players for the game."

Then, Moyes jokes: "It might not be his team! It could be a bluff."
