David moyes believes that West Ham’s attacking trio of Said Benrahma, Michail Antonio and Jarrod Bowen must consistently perform at the highest level to be comparable to Liverpool’s lethal front four.
The fit Hammers host Liverpool on Sunday looking to cement their place in the top four with Benrahma, Antonio and Bowen enjoying good seasons thus far.
The trio have scored more than half of West Ham’s Premier League goals this period and their influence on the team has been enormously impressive.
Coach David Moyes believes that West Ham’s attacking trio must consistently perform at the highest level to be comparable to Liverpool’s deadly front four.
Indeed, Moyes cannot speak highly of his players, but admits that his attacking trio has a long way to go to match the standards of the Liverpool foursome of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota.
“I don’t think we can compare our three or four with Liverpool’s three or four because they have done it at the highest level and consistently well and scored numerous goals,” Moyes said.
But we have our three. We are very happy with their performance. I hope I can continue, but we are very happy with their form, they all bring something different.

IMoyes can’t speak highly of his players, but admits that his attacking trio has a long way to go to match the standards of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota.
“What we are trying to get from those three is consistency and reliability so that they can score us a goal at the right time.
“This year we have had many attacking moments that we have not taken advantage of, neither with the final pass nor with the end, and that is part of what we are trying to obtain from those three.”
Jurgen Klopp has spoken openly of his admiration for Bowen, highlighting the significant strides he has made to become a key part of West Ham’s success in the Premier League.
Indeed, Liverpool were linked to Bowen last summer and Moyes hopes the 24-year-old will build on his burgeoning reputation.
“Jarrod is now in a top club,” he insisted.
“It’s the level of consistency Jarrod needs to bring to his game.

‘He (Benrahma) said as well. You have to remember that both have come out of the Championship and I think it is a good base for them.
“They know the game, they are hungry to succeed and both are desperate to do better.
“We can hardly get them out of training ground, they are desperate to improve their finishing and they are both great team players and improving all the time.
Are they at the level of Liverpool’s ‘Fab Four’? Not yet, but they have to keep pushing themselves to try to reach the standards that the Liverpool players are setting. ”
