David Moyes has defended his team selection as West Ham‘s unbeaten European run came to an end.
Moyes said: “Look, we changed a lot of players tonight, we’ve got the Premier League coming up and we’ve got a League Cup game next week and we’d won the first two games in the group, which gave us leeway to make changes tonight.
“But maybe I have to recognise that while we didn’t win the Conference League games easily, as they were all tough games, coming to Olympiakos after winning away in Freiburg – which was a good result – this wasn’t a good result and wasn’t a good performance.
“In our heads we certainly had a bigger picture in our heads and that was going into Sunday.
“I don’t think anybody could say the team we started with wasn’t a good team and wasn’t a team capable of winning or performing.
“Many of them have been very good players for us over the years and still are.”
