And he showed what he is capable of last night, despite the fact that he was only given a few minutes to impress.

David Moyes comments on Dan Chesters display for West Ham

The young attacking midfielder certainly has something special about him.

He can play on either wing or in the number 10 position and he has bagged one goal and three assists in eight games for the under-23s so far this season (Transfermarkt).

Moyes praised Chesters to the hilt after his four-minute cameo for the Hammers in the Europa League last night, as quoted by Football.London:

“He has speed, he has trained well with the first team last week, when we were in the international break and he’d been quite impressive. We were a little bit short of attacking players today so it gave us a chance to get a couple of young players on the bench. Dan has been doing well and when he came on he showed his endeavour to stop them a couple of times. I’m really pleased for him, it is always good when you can give a young player his debut and I’m sure it was a big moment for him and his family.”

Chesters has a very bright future ahead of him at the London Stadium.

David Moyes will undoubtedly be patient with him and give him the odd chance here and there this season.

He will undoubtedly continue improving this season and it will be very interesting to see whether he is ready to be a first-team regular next term.

The young man certainly has the talent. All that he needs to do it match that with a top-class work ethic and he’ll have no trouble succeeding at the very highest level.
