West Ham defender, Angelo Ogbonna, has said they have been transformed by the magic touch of manager David Moyes.
Ogbonna said Moyes has transformed their “mentality”.
“Since the manager came in, we’ve changed the mentality,” the 32-year-old explained to the club’s website. “The mentality is totally different. Now when we concede, we don’t give up. We know we will have our chances. We want to compete against any team.
“I think it was a positive point against Southampton. We knew that they would play differently to last year: they press a lot, with high intensity, and the way they play for us wasn’t easy because we didn’t have a lot of time to prepare. We were travelling so we spent just a couple of hours together at home.
“I think it was a great result. We struggled in the first 15 to 20 minutes, but then we stuck at it and I think it was a really good point.
“The most important thing was to not concede. We wanted to get back into our shape and I think we did brilliantly.”
