Moyes urges West Ham to 'get used to winning' at London Stadium

The big striker criticised West Ham supporters for leaving early during the defeat by Liverpool earlier this month, but a good performance against Watford after the global break might have served as an adequate peace offering from the former England worldwide.

The Foxes make the trip to the capital for David Moyes' first home game in charge of the Hammers after he was appointed earlier this month.

It's probably safe to say that Andy Carroll isn't the most popular man among West Ham United fans at the moment.

"I've been there a couple of times this week and it's brilliant", he said. It's a hard game for them but also for us.

"They are knowledgeable supporters, they've seen a lot of good stuff going on over the years here and they will be wanting the team to play well".

"We need to give the supporters something to shout about and something that looks half decent, and then they will support us". I'm not aware of any problems before I came, I wasn't made aware of anything. I want the fans behind us and I want the team to have every chance of winning.

Moyes will be without Mexico striker Javier Hernandez, winger Michail Antonio and defender James Collins through injury.

The Austria global was left writing on the pitch in agony and left the field after lengthy treatment on what turned out to be - a sore thumb. "At first I thought maybe a broken arm, or a broken thumb", added Moyes.

He said: "I think their attitude and their application wasn't in question for me against Watford, far from it, we could show that wasn't the case, so I think that's the first thing we need to say".
