Cape Town - West Ham United defender Aaron Cresswell has praised new manager David Moyes for organising the team and improving their work ethic.
Moyes has only managed to earn one point in his first four games in charge since taking over from Slaven Bilic, but Cresswell insists the former Everton and Manchester United boss has made a positive impact.
"Organisation is the key to everything, running, work ethic, and he's certainly brought that since he's come through the door," he told Sky Sports.
"Whenever a new manager comes in, it doesn't matter for what reason it is, the tempo in training, the games, the running stats go up. That's happened at our place, but we haven't picked up the points we'd like, and we need to do that sooner rather than later.
"For the position we're in now, it's not about enjoying it, you've got to do the gritty things, the hard things, and he certainly works on that.
"It's work ethic. Especially when you're down in the relegation zone. You can have the best players in the world, but if you don't work hard you won't win games.
"He has emphasised that if you don't run, you won't play, and the lads have took to it. It's improving us."
The Irons' next Premier League fixture is against defending champions Chelsea at the London Stadium on Saturday.
