West Ham boss Moyes: Where Benrahma must improve to start

West Ham United boss David Moyes has explained why he's holding back Said Benrahma.

Moyes admits he wants the former Brentford star to keep the ball better.

He told whufc.com: "We like him, he's got ability, but retention and making sure he makes the right decisions more often than not is what we're after from him.

"This is a step up for him and this is why, if we're going to be pushing him and judging him so quickly, I said it with him right from the start and I said it with Jarrod Bowen, I just know the boys from the Championship and some of them come in and hit the ground running right away and others need a little bit of time, and we're building Saïd up and making him realise the importance of making the correct pass and keeping the ball when it's not on, because getting the ball back off teams in the Premier League is not easy once they've got it.

"I am sure he's frustrated but that's part of it as well, and he's also come into a side which, in the main, has been playing very well, so from that point of view he will just need to wait like everybody else, and there are other players who are waiting to get into the team as well to show what they can do."
