’s impressive four-match winning Premier League streak.

This was


’ first victory after four defeats as an opposition manager at Goodison Park since leaving the Toffees in 2013.

“I think always going back to your old clubs is special,”

said Moyes, on the one-year anniversary of the first game of his second spell in charge


“I had a brilliant time here, great years, but I want to do it again at West Ham and that means going and winning at the other clubs.

“Coming here tonight and winning was really important: Everton are in a great moment, have been playing well, getting great results and had a chance to go second, so you couldn’t under-estimate what it would mean to Everton – and we were on the back of our third game in six days.”

Moyes will close the club’s training ground for four days to give the players a break and a chance to perform a deep clean.

“We are going to make sure we give the players four days off so they can have some time and we make sure we shut the training ground down for a few days because it is very bad, Covid, at the moment.

“The only reason is so we can get another clean and keep people out, we have not been told to do that and it is not because of the one Covid player we have got.

“It’s mainly because we want to give the players a break and it means we are trying to do everything we can.

West Ham are now sitting in 10th place of the Premier League table only three points behind third-place Leicester.
