David Moyes questioned whether any Premier League defenders could deal with Andy Carroll's aerial threat after he fired West Ham to victory over West Brom.

Carroll ended nine months without a goal in emphatic fashion with a second-half double at the London Stadium, the second of which came deep into stoppage time.

His first, West Ham's equaliser, was a trademark towering header which left Jonny Evans and Kieran Gibbs grounded, and Moyes was jubilant after his striker's return to form.

"They were top goals," he told Sky Sports. "I don't know if there are many centre-halves that could have dealt with his leap for the first goal, and I must say the ball in is terrific.

On that day, the Hammers won 2-0, with Carroll leading the line. And Redknapp believes that performance should have shown Moyes how he needs to play at the London Stadium.

"And you have to give him great credit for the finish for the second goal."

The Hammers moved five points clear of West Brom with the dramatic 2-1 victory, a result which stretched the Baggies' winless run in the Premier League to 20 games.

It ended a run of four games without a win in all competitions for Moyes' men, and, despite conceding West Ham were not at their best, the Scot demanded his side to push on.

"You can see how important it was, it would have been the same had West Brom scored, Alan [Pardew] would have felt the same," he added. "It was vital three points for us.

"We've come close, we were unlucky against Newcastle a few weeks ago and obviously felt we should have won the game at Bournemouth and we didn't, so to do it today was maybe just.

"We didn't play well, maybe the system we played, which has been good for us, didn't work at all tonight.

"But we made the changes, got 15 yards further up the field and were the better team in the second half, but we weren't at the races in the first half. For long periods we didn't do well at the back, but in the end we got our rewards.

"We want to be out of the bottom three. Psychologically you don't want to be in it at all, I was disappointed when we did slip back into it, but tonight we got a result and we've got to try and move on."

Moyes doesn't want any outgoings .
David Moyes has said that he doesn’t want to let any of his players leave this month, saying interested teams will have to pay a lot of money to convince him otherwise. It has been reported that West Ham were looking to offload summer signing Javier Hernandez in the last few days, and that Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho are both wanted men, but Moyes wants to keep them all at the London Stadium. The Hammers coach wants to keep all of his goalscorers, as he sees the club’s strength in depth as an advantage in ensuring they retain their Premier League status. Moyes is looking for additions in the transfer window though, namely a right winger, but he has seen any and all offers rejected as of now. Talking about his reluctance to sanction sales this month, Moyes said; “I don’t want any of them to go. We’ve got no players here who we want to leave. We want to add to our squad.” “Ideally we strengthen, so my intention is not to let anyone go. We’ve got four or five strikers and the competition is tough for all of them but I’m happy that way.” “If we were (to sell) it would take an awful lot of money in this window to prise any of them out.” Diafra Sakho is one who has looked destined to leave this month. The Senegalese forward has stated his intention to leave, and has found minutes tough to come by this season, with Mark Arnautovic and Michail Antonio preferred up front to him.
