The pressure is constant, says Moyes

David Moyes has shrugged off suggestions that today's match against Everton was a hugely significant fixture for him personally.

The manager, who recently celebrated three years in charge of the club in what is his second spell in Stratford saw his team secure a vitally-important 2-0 win against the Toffees at the London Olympic Stadium today.

However he insisted that he hasn't spent too much time dwelling on his own personal situation, despite calls for his replacement reaching a peak following last week's 1-0 defeat at Wolves.

"I don't really think about it too much," he said, speaking in the wake of a win that lifted his side out of the relegation zone.

"In football you have to take every game as it comes. Next week will be no different, nor the week after. There are always games where you'll be under pressure. Today felt like a pressure game but for the club, as much as for me."

And when asked if he felt he continued to enjoy the support of the club's board he replied: "I've said it a dozen times, I've got great support from the board and I think them once again every time I get an opportunity to thank them - because you never know in this game what might happen.

"I still believe the board didn't want to make any changes. I thought we would win today - although me winning one game doesn’t mean everything is fine,"

Meanwhile the Hammers boss urged today's opponents to stick with his opposite number, who also faces being replaced as Everton's winless run extended to eight games.

"I would hate to think Everton would go down because they mean so much to me," he added. "And I really hope Everton stick with Frank. He is a top bloke."

We'll have more for you from the manager's post match press conference later this evening.
