David Moyes has expressed that Pablo Fornals has positioned himself as a strong contender to start in the Conference Final for West Ham, relays the Claret&Hugh. The Spanish player continued his scoring form by netting a goal against Leicester City, following his decisive winner in the second leg of the semi-final against AZ Alkmaar. With two goals in the last three matches and a total of seven goals this season despite extended periods of absence, Fornals’ performance has impressed Moyes, who is currently satisfied with his contributions.
In the recent match, Fornals skillfully evaded the attention of five Leicester defenders before expertly placing a shot into the bottom corner of Daniel Iversen’s left post with eleven minutes remaining. West Ham exerted significant pressure in the late stages of the game, but they couldn’t find an equalizer that would have allowed them to surpass Wolverhampton Wanderers in the standings. Consequently, the East London club settled for a 14th-place finish in the table.
Moyes said: “Pablo manipulates the ball and finds a way of getting a goal quite often.
He’s been a bit unlucky for long parts of the season but he’s playing well. He played really well at Alkmaar, he played really well against Leeds United and I thought he played well today.
He’s certainly putting himself in the frame to get a start because of how well he’s doing and he’s scoring goals, which is the thing we need.”
