West Ham stars make return to training after David Moyes reward and deep clean of club base

West Ham United’s players return to training today after some richly deserved time off from David Moyes.

Tottenham open to offers for player linked with West Ham, should Moyes try again?

West Ham have made their best start to a season for 22 years.

The Hammers have been hugely impressive and beat Everton last time out to bring a gruelling festive schedule to a close.

Delighted Moyes rewarded Hammers stars with four-day break after hectic festive schedule

Moyes was delighted with his players after they secured five points from three games in just six days last week. That culminated in the 1-0 victory over a fully rested Everton side on New Year’s Day.

So much so the Scot rewarded his squad with four days off between Saturday and Tuesday (Evening Standard).

That means West Ham’s players will return to training today ahead of Monday night’s FA Cup third round tie at Stockport.

And they will come back to a spotless Rush Green training base after it was given a deep clean in an effort to keep players safe amidst rising Covid cases.

Players back in training at squeaky clean Rush Green

It comes after the Premier League announced a season high 40 positive coronavirus cases in the latest round of testing.

One of those was West Ham’s Ryan Fredericks. He will be absent from training when West Ham return to Rush Green on Wednesday as he must continue to isolate following his positive Covid test.

According the the likes of The Times the Premier League are confident ‘the show will go on’ despite rising cases.

And there are currently no plans for a reported ‘circuit break’.

Attention turns to FA Cup as fans wait to see Moyes intentions

All eyes at West Ham now turn to the FA Cup.

And the focus will be on how Moyes attacks a competition West Ham have not won for 41 years.

The Hammers boss is known for making changes in the cups. But with West Ham safely ensconced in midtable with no threat of relegation, he will be expected to go for it.

It could also be argued West Ham have an excellent chance of doing something special in the league and qualifying for Europe.

But Moyes and his team could make themselves legends with a cup win.

So West Ham fans will be waiting to see what Moyes’s team selection says about his intentions this season.
