Ally McCoist and Neil Lennon share David Moyes verdict at West Ham United ahead of Leicester City clash
Neil Lennon believes no fingers can be pointed at West Ham boss David Moyes in terms of the Premier League relegation battle.
The Hammers play struggling Leicester City on the final day of the season, with the Foxes needing a win to have any hopes of avoiding the drop.
And they could be handed a massive boost by Moyes, who could drop several key players in order to fully prepare for his side’s upcoming Europa Conference League final.
“Is there a serious level of responsibility on Moyes?” McCoist asked Lennon live on talkSPORT.
“Because if West Ham were playing Brentford or Crystal Palace, for example, or somebody that really didn’t have anything to play for, if I’m Moyes I’m probably thinking I’m playing a team that is no way going to be my team for the European final.”
Lennon replied: “It’s a good point. West Ham are safe, they’ve done their business. Regardless of what team he puts out, you can’t point any fingers at David. He’s got a European final to think about. He’ll be thinking about what’s best for West Ham and his players.”

Highly-anticipated final day
It really has been one of the most exciting Premier League seasons ever, at both the top and the bottom end of the table, with the Hammers thankfully able to relax after worrying about their future for quite some time.
The relegation battle has been ongoing for quite some time, but it has now been narrowed down to just three clubs in Everton, Leeds United and Leicester.
With 33 points, the Toffees are in a better position going into the final day than the Whites and the Foxes, who both sit on 31 points.
But given the constant twists and turns in the Premier League this season, there really is no telling what will happen on the final day.
Those three clubs will be focused on picking up a positive result from their own match, but there will also be a part of them that will be constantly worrying about how their rivals are getting on.
As usual, any negativity or positivity from elsewhere will quickly flood into the stadium, either to the delight or worry of their supporters.
