Moyes reacts to Hernandez goal & transfer rumours


A loan move makes flawless sense right now for a big money player who is unproven in the top flight, and as proven with Simone Zaza last season, success elsewhere does not translate into success in the Premier League.

Moyes said: "Well, there's speculation about "Chicharito".

The Turkish champions are keen to bring in a forward in this window after selling Cenk Tosun to Everton, and it seems the West Ham player be the one.

Despite staving off defeat, West Ham failed to clinch back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time since January 21, 2017, while Bournemouth, dumped out of the FA Cup by Wigan Athletic on Thursday (AEDT), rise to 12th.

"And hopefully he's going to score a lot more goals for us in the weeks and months".

There was another concern as Manuel Lanzini went off with a suspected hamstring injury, having played the whole 120 minutes against Shrewsbury on Tuesday night. There was that one, and we put a great one in just after it across the face of the box, but we needed him today. Soon after, Cherries' goalkeeper, Asmir Begovic produced a stunning reaction save to deny Marko Arnautovic from close range, then thwarted the Austrian frontman with his feet as the home side continually made their attacking intentions clear to the south coast club.

Bournemouth are now unbeaten in five in the league, but boss Eddie Howe lamented the equaliser after a slow start from his side. "He's an impact player", he added. Adrian was hesitant after former Hammer, Junior Stanislas, played through, and Ryan Fraser thrashed the loose ball beyond the Spanish stopper, much to the anguish of Moyes and his men. After Hernandez took the first touch, the ball was sent long.

"It's frustration as we'd done so well up the other end, then the nature of their goal was hugely disappointing, we didn't attack the ball well enough".
