David Moyes wants home comforts for West Ham on London Stadium debut

West Ham's David Moyes cut a dejected figure following his side's defeat in his first game in charge.

West Ham manager David Moyes has said he wants to give the club's fans something to shout about as he prepares to take charge of his first game at their London Stadium home.

Hammers fans vented their anger at joint-chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold, and vice-chair Karren Brady, during the defeat at Watford last Sunday.

They remain unhappy about the move from Upton Park to the former Olympic Stadium as well as this season's on-pitch struggles, which see West Ham in the Premier League relegation zone.

But as he prepared to take on Leicester on Friday, Moyes said: "I've been there [the London Stadium] a couple of times this week, and it's brilliant.

"We are going to be there for the next 100 years.

"When teams move to stadiums it can be difficult -- it wasn't that easy for Arsenal at the Emirates -- but we need to get used to winning there.

"We need to give the supporters something to shout about and something that looks half decent, and then they will support us.

"I want everyone to be together. I want them behind us to give us a chance of winning."

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

But forward Andre Ayew is fit after illness ruled him out at Vicarage Road, while Marko Arnautovic is likely to come back after suffering a thumb injury at Vicarage Road.

"We thought it was bad. At first I thought maybe a broken arm, or a broken thumb,'' Moyes said.

"But there are no breaks, it was badly swollen. He's fine and has trained with a good plaster on it."
