Abuja - Nigeria forward Victor Moses says he's satisfied with his debut
for West Ham, after helping the Hammers to a 2-0 victory over Newcastle United
on Monday in the English Premier League.
Moses, who joined West Ham on loan from Chelsea on transfer
deadline day, started for the Hammers at Upton Park in a Monday night fixture,
and was a constant threat to the Newcastle United defense, getting close to
scoring on several occasions.
The 24-year old, however, somewhat assisted West Ham's second goal
- a beautiful run, which included the beating of Massadio Haidara and then a
shot which ricocheted off the crossbar, and fell nicely onto the path of Dmitri
Payet, who slotted home to score his and West Ham's second of the night.

he was replaced on the 88th minute by the returning Andy Carroll, who
incidentally remains a Newcastle fan's favorite, despite leaving the club four
And Moses has relished his good performance and his team's
"It was a good game for us and I'm happy with the way we
played. We set out to enjoy the game and we sort of did that and we're pleased
with the three points," Moses said in a post-match interview.
This is Moses' third club on loan in three years, having played
for Liverpool and Stoke City over the last two years.
He remains contracted to Chelsea, and has severally stated his
desire to be a regular at Stamford Bridge.
