West Ham boss David Moyes speaking to Match of the Day: “A good point because the way we played I wasn’t sure we were going to get any – the point is the positive we take from it, we never reached the level we can reach.
“I felt we were in good shape with the training during the week. No excuses, we just did not play well today.
“Let’s be fair, Newcastle had one or two opportunities in the fist half, so did we, we just did not deal well with those balls in the box today and that was one that led to the goal.”
Newcastle boss Eddie Howe: “It was a really good performance for us. A tough ground, we started really well, put them under pressure, got a lot of balls in their box and were disappointed to only get one goal really. West Ham are a top team so are always in the game.
“We deserved it in the opening 45 minutes and it was a great goal for us, we are disappointed with the one we conceded because we know all about their set-piece threat.”
On Joe Willock: “It is very important for him personally and the team, he is a goalscorer, he is a key player for us, it has been coming. His performances have improved week on week – hopefully that is the first of many as our midfield probably has not continuous enough. “
