West Ham United manager David Moyes has been very impressed with new defender Thilo Kehrer.

The Hammers secured a vital point against fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur at the London Stadium last night.

Speaking to the club’s official website, West Ham manager David Moyes reflected on the match.

Moyes said he’s been impressed with new signing Thilo Kehrer, singling the German out for praise.

The German international scored an unfortunate own goal that put Spurs in front.

He turned the ball into his own net, but Son Heung-min would have pounced at the back post had he not intervened.

However, Tomas Soucek equalised for the Hammers with a volley at the near post.

Speaking to the club’s official site, Moyes said:  “Thilo (Kehrer), for example, has made a really good start in the three or four games he’s played.”

Kehrer won’t want to remember his own goal, but will be encouraged by Moyes’ feedback.

The German international has already shown his versatility, slotting quickly into various defensive roles.

Moyes has deployed Kehrer as part of a back four and back three already at the London Stadium.

He could be joined by another defensive partner before deadline day passes.

Southampton’s Jan Bednarek has been linked with a move to West Ham.

Kehrer seems to be settling in well at his new club.

He’s already spoken about how impressed he was with the atmosphere created at the London Stadium.

He seems to already be a key part of his manager’s set-up at West Ham.

And if he can keep impressing Moyes, Kehrer could play a lot of football this season, with the Hammers also competing in Europe.
