Andre Ayew insists West Ham are continuing to improve under David Moyes and has urged his side to learn from Tuesday's narrow Carabao Cup defeat at Arsenal.
The Gunners ran out 1-0 winners courtesy of a Danny Welbeck goal as Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger made 11 changes to his side. Moyes made six alterations of his own as the Hammers went down to their first defeat in four games.
"I think we have players who have the desire, players who want to run and play for the club," he told whufc.com. "We are getting better and better. We lose 1-0 at the Emirates, with young lads also playing, it's good for them, it's good for the club, for the future.
"We're going to use this game to become better and work and be better for Saturday because that's what's important at the moment. I'm disappointed because I'm a competitor and I always want to go further, but we can learn from this and become a better squad and hopefully get good results before the end of the year."
