West Ham have been goal-shy to say the very least this season, netting just 13 times in 15 games in the Premier League.

Hernandez has scored four goals since his £16m summer move from Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen, with a lack of service proving to be an issue for the nippy Mexican international.

Moyes hopes for a "busy" January .
West Ham boss David Moyes says that he hopes next month’s transfer window will be “busy” for the Hammers, as they look to secure their Premier League status. Joint-Chairman David Sullivan also hinted at an active window for the London club, suggesting that two or three new players will be brought into the club in January. Despite the Hammers beating Chelsea and drawing with Arsenal in their last two games, the club are still in the relegation zone, something Moyes wants to change. He said; “I hope it is busy, the January window. In recent years, it has not been as busy as people had made it out to be. But it is not the easiest month (to do transfer business).” “I would like to add to the squad if we can do. I think it is really important that we try and get players who we think can make a difference and can give us people who can more or less go straight into the team. But that is not the easiest thing to do.” Talking about the positive changes he has seen in his team, Moyes continued; “Definitely, anybody who beats Chelsea and anybody who gets a result against Arsenal, especially in the position we are in would see it as a real positive.” “We have still got to climb the table, so we still have to win an awful lot more games. We can pat ourselves on the back for the performances and how well the players have done.” “But overall, we still have a lot of games to go and we have got to win them.
