David Moyes had some choices words at the end of West Ham United's 3-3 draw with Brighton on Saturday, cursing his side's record of six games without a win against the Seagulls.
The Hammers were in cruise control with 15 minutes left to play at the London Stadium, but they threw away their two-goal lead within the space of four minutes, allowing Brighton to snatch a share of the spoils in the relegation six-pointer.

"I don't think you can hide the facts. People will be flat because they are hoping that something is going to dramatically change - it can't dramatically change, it can't."
Good luck, West Ham.
