New West Ham manager David Moyes admits he has “a point to prove” following his return to the English Premier League.

The 54-year-old was named Slaven Bilic’s replacement at the Hammers’ helm, taking over for the remainder of the top-flight campaign where West Ham find themselves in the relegation zone.

And, have failed to flatter during his last two spells in England - with Manchester United and then Sunderland, who suffered relegation under Moyes last season - the tactician is determined to prove his worth in the division.

"I think I do have a point to prove - sometimes you have to repair things and maybe I've a little bit to repair," said Moyes.

"I've been a football supporter all my days and I love to see attacking play and goals. I want it to be entertaining but that's no good if you're shipping in goals every week because you can't win the games. You have to start defensively.

"All the best teams have the best defences. We have to start from there, try and get a few clean sheets, find out whether three or four at the back is best for us with the players available, and get ourselves bedded down.

"I think we have enough good attacking players to cause teams problems and score goals. Let's see if we can find a way to stop conceding goals."
