West Ham boss, Slaven Bilic, has commended the duo of Victor Moses and Emmanuel Emenike for their contributions during the team’s 2-2 draw against Norwich City in the Premier League on Saturday.
Bilic, who highlighted the performances of substitutes Emenike and Moses, added that the Nigerian international team-mates ‘made the difference’ for West Ham, with Emenike playing for just the second time since arriving from Fenerbahce last month.
West Ham conceded two goals and the introduction of the duo changed the game as Moses made an assist for Dimitri Payet, who made it 2-1.
“They made a huge impact and I expected that from them, but the way they made that impact was great and they deserve all the praise” said Bilic to West Ham’s official website.
“The first goal was a brilliant move, but that’s why he’s Victor Moses and that’s why he is a West Ham player.
“I was then expecting a player to be there to finish the loose ball, whether that be Dimi or someone else.”
