West Ham full-back Aaron Cresswell has taken a swipe at Manchester United while hailing his current manager David Moyes.
The Hammers sit above the Reds in the Premier League table in third place after an excellent start to the season.
This has led to Moyes being praised as if his short disastrous spell at Old Trafford never happened.
West Ham became the first team to beat Liverpool in the league this season, prior to the international break when they ran out 3-2 winners at home.
Cresswell is one of their key players and he has been boasting about their win over the Scousers.
He couldn’t help but aim a dig at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United when interviewed by Jamie Redknapp for the Daily Mail, saying: “If you’d said to me, going up against Liverpool, you’re going to go expansive and try to beat them at their own game, then there would be only one winner.
“With all due respect, that’s what happened to Manchester United.
“The gaffer’s tactics in each game have been spot on. We’ve got variety. Whether we need to go in behind to Michail Antonio, or play through the lines, or how Declan Rice drives the team on, or get goals from set pieces.”
How long will this last for Moyes?
I’m not sure West Ham’s form is sustainable because it’s still early days, but the festive period will help us evaluate that as games come thick and fast.
In order to get our season back on track, though, United need to start winning matches and climbing up the table to surpass West Ham in the coming weeks.
Losing 5-0 till Liverpool still hurts – and the way we played against Man City before the break was arguably worse.
