The Hammers’ continental trip ended in disappointment after a 3-1 aggregate loss to their German opponents, who looked largely in control for most of the two legs.
While there must be some prospect given where the club were when Moyes returned at the end of 2019, there is a risk that West Ham’s season will run out.
Currently sitting six points behind Manchester United in sixth, albeit one game less, Moyes’ side have won just one of their last six Premier League games.
Sunday, however, offers a chance to get back on track, with a visit to already relegated Norwich City. United, meanwhile, travel to Brighton on Saturday night, meaning West Ham could conceivably close the gap ahead of the final three games of the season.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Moyes said: “It won’t be easy but we will do everything we can to do our best and we are in a good position in the league.
“We know we could still finish sixth and we want to be in a European spot, so we’ll keep pushing hard for that.”
