Moyes press conference: We fined Carroll; Collins & Obiang out vs Leicester

Calm & stern is the manager ahead of another crucial contest

West Ham United manager David Moyes said Friday afternoon the team is in a positive state of mind going into their latest crucial match of the season, when they take on Leicester City this weekend.

In his weekly pre-match press conference, the Scottish manager addressed the falling out with Andy Carroll last week after the Manchester City defeat, stating that the punishment had been given out and the matter was resolved.

“We’ve fined him, he’s apologized to the played and myself, so we’ve moved on and it’s done and dusted,” Moyes said. “He’ll be in the squad this weekend.”

The same injury situation of last week is the case for the Hammers in this pivotal duel against the Foxes.

”Neither Obiang nor Collins are in condition to be match-fit, but they are back in training.” Moyes said. “All the games are massive, as they’ve been since I came in. This is a big game for us, and all three games we have got left are big. We’ve got three games left and we want to win all three of them. If we win all three of them, then we could move quite a long way up the table.”

One player who could be key in the Hammers possibly ending any relegation fears is Patrice Evra, as Moyes complimented the former world class left back.

”Pat has been great around the Club,” he said. “His professionalism has been at the highest level.”

”Two of his games have been against Liverpool and Man City, so we played him in those games because we understand how good he is and how many games like that he has played in during his career.”
