There haven’t been many things to impress West Ham United fans of late but Felipe Anderson has bucked the trend.

The Hammers have endured a torrid season which is culminating in a desperate battle for survival.

West Ham are in the bottom three going into the last 13 games.

And David Moyes’s side face the daunting prospect of back-to-back away trips to Manchester City and Liverpool after an interrupted winter break.

Winter break divides opinion among Hammers fans

The winter break has divided opinion among West Ham fans.

Some cynical Hammers supporters have suggested their team has been on a break since October.

Others feel a break is what West Ham need to get their season back on track.

Moyes elected to give his side a full week off.

And now West Ham face City next Wednesday in their rearranged match, which negates any potential benefits of Moyes having an extended period of training with his squad.

Anderson puts in the hard yards during time off

But Felipe Anderson has impressed supporters with his dedication after sharing footage of him training hard during his time off.

With the hashtag ‘no day off’ Anderson posted footage doing drills, sprints and other exercises as he looks set to return to action at the Etihad.

Anderson posted the clips on his Instagram stories which were then captured and shared out by West Ham Twitter account Irons United.

“They’re not all laying on a beach sipping sangria,” Irons United said.

Like most of the West Ham squad, Anderson has not been having a great season.

West Ham fans impressed with star’s dedication

But he looked back to his old self in Moyes’s first two games before picking up an injury in the defeat at Sheffield United that has kept him out since.

West Ham fans will be hoping he can pick up where he left off when if he returns to the side against City.

Here are a selection of Twitter comments from West Ham fans reacting to the images of Anderson training during the winter break.

‘We need you’
