David Moyes claims that he did not expect to steer West Ham United to the brink of the Premier League's top 10 following Saturday's 2-0 win over Watford.

David Moyes has claimed that he did not expect to steer West Ham United to the brink of the top 10 of the Premier League table.

On Saturday, Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic scored as the Hammers put further distance between themselves and the relegation zone with a 2-0 victory over Watford.

The result at the London Stadium moved West Ham level on points with 11th-placed Watford and five points clear of the dropzone, prompting Moyes to laud the quick turnaround since his November appointment.

"I thought we started really well. We were very wary of Watford after their performance and result against Chelsea. That was a concern. But we nullified them," the Scot told reporters after the game.

"We have threats in attacking areas - Javier Hernandez, Michail Antonio and Marko Arnautovic - which ultimately hurt them in the end.

"I wasn't so happy with our second half. We didn't win much and I thought Watford were first to most things. But we defended well enough. We still merited it, we stuck at it and got the job done.

"When I took over we were in the relegation zone, I'd have said 'you're kidding' if you said we could get into the top 10 when I took over. It's great credit to the players. We want to keep improving."

Up next for West Ham in the Premier League is a trip to Anfield to face Liverpool on February 24.
