He said: ‘It’s really a pleasure, honour and privilege to cover West Ham and see the smiles on faces. The punters will have to be so proud of them because it was such a disciplined, strong (showing). They were tactically strong, aggressive at the right time, they kept their cool. Passionate, but cool-minded at crucial times. 

‘The Moyes-iah can do no wrong. He gets it right all the time. He’s at his absolute peak as a manager. West Ham beat them very well. They have fantastic footballers, Lyon, but there’s a fragility in the squad. 

‘Everything West Ham have, resilience, robustness, Lyon did not have. Sometimes in football it’s like a Hollywood film, scripted, in Mark Noble’s last year… it’s a wonderful, wonderful moment.’
