West Ham have won three of their matches against the so called big six in the Premier League this season, but have lost their previous two games without scoring a goal.


The Hammers do go into the game against Liverpool today having won the reverse fixture earlier in the season, beating the Reds 3-2.



Warnock thinks it is a big deficiency in the Hammers’ play that they sit back and are content being on the back foot against the big six teams.


The former Liverpool star thinks that it is certainly an area that manager David Moyes will have to make changes in though he is hoping that the Hammers do it after the game against the Reds.



Speaking on LFCTV, Warnock said: “The big thing when I watch them [West Ham] against the big six teams is that they sit back and defend a little bit too much, they don’t like to commit too many players forward and it can be detrimental to the way that their players play.


“It can bring a negative effect into the game and it’s something that I’d like to see him [Moyes] improve.



“But not on Saturday.”


Moyes has never won an away match at Anfield in the Premier League but the Hammers will be hoping he is able to put an end to that record and in general improve their performances against the big six teams.
