David Moyes is seeking continual improvement after West Ham extended their unbeaten run to seven games.

The Hammers' undefeated sequence began with a 3-3 Boxing Day draw at Bournemouth, who were the opponents in a 1-1 draw at the London Stadium on Saturday.

Moyes described the first half as the best football of his reign, which began in November. But he will demand more.

"I'm looking for better. A lot of the games we've been winning, but I'm looking for more," the former Everton and Manchester United boss said.

"I thought there were bits of the more (against Bournemouth). This is just beginning to get a little bit more design to it.

"We've got blistering power and pace up front, which we can use, ability on the ball.

"We've got to try to mix it and do the right thing. Once or twice we didn't quite get it right. We missed a cutting edge."

Bournemouth are now unbeaten in five in the league, but were disappointed not to capitalise on opening the scoring.
