West Ham United thumped Bournemouth 4-0 at the London Stadium yesterday to give David Moyes a dream start.
The Hammers were in devastating form and went in at half-time three goals to the good.
The performance was devastating and a far cry from any one of the dross served up by Manuel Pellegrini’s team this season.
Moyes might not have been an overly popular choice to replace the Chilean but yesterday’s win was a great start.
Whatever instructions Moyes gave to winger Felipe Anderson paid dividends. The ex-Lazio man was in brilliant form and helped himself to his first goal of the campaign.
Anderson was utilised behind Sebastian Haller in attack and he clearly reaped the rewards.
He looked like a completely different player to the one which has been below-par throughout the campaign.
He had a pass success ration of 84%, scored with one of two shots on goal and completed 19 accurate passes (Who Scored).
Anderson arrived at the London Stadium at the start of last season. He cost the club £36 million (BBC) and initially made an impact.
This season has been a struggle, however, but Moyes already looks to have had a positive impact on Anderson.
If he can get the 26-year-old firing then West Ham fans are in for a treat.
Last season he netted 10 goals and registered five assists during his maiden campaign in the Premier League.
He has a long way to go to hit those numbers this season but Moyes could be the perfect manager for the man paid £85,000-a-week (Spotrac).
Having a player like the Brazilian on top form can only bode well and West Ham will climb the league in no time if he finds his very best form.
