David Moyes attributes West Ham’s heavy defeats to the absence of Declan Rice

West Ham’s struggles on the road this season are due to the absence of Declan Rice, according to David Moyes.

The club let go of Rice to Arsenal for a hefty fee, causing a decline in results since January. A recent 5-0 loss against Chelsea was the sixth time West Ham conceded four goals or more in an away match this season.

Moyes pointed to the lack of protection in front of the defense as the primary reason for the poor defensive record. West Ham’s position has weakened, and Moyes is trying to instill mental toughness to turn things around.

The team’s recent form, including a lack of clean sheets in the past 16 games, has raised concerns about Moyes’ future. Despite rumors of Julen Lopetegui as a potential replacement, Moyes plans to discuss his future with the board at the end of the season.
