West Ham United boss David Moyes could be handed a major quadruple boost ahead of this weekend’s game against Tottenham Hotspur.

Ironic karma for player who snubbed West Ham for Spurs

The Hammers travel to Tottenham in superb form having beaten Wolves 4-0 and Leicester City 3-0 in their last two Premier League games.

Tottenham are in good shape too having beaten Maccabi Haifa 7-2 and Manchester United 6-1 in their last two games.

Spurs could also be boosted with Jose Mourinho set to hand a second debut to Gareth Bale.

Quadruple boost for West Ham ahead of Spurs

But West Ham have a series of big boosts of their own heading into the crunch game.

It was not long ago that doom and gloom had enveloped West Ham yet again.

That pair of excellent wins has changed the atmosphere around the Hammers, though.

And there were more positives for Moyes this week with a quadruple boost – and potentially sextuple boost ahead of the London derby against Tottenham.

Masuaku, Coufal, Soucek and Benrahma in for London derby?

Hammers fans felt it was so typical of their bad luck.

But Masuaku took to Twitter to reveal it was just a precaution and he was ‘all good’.

Then there was a scare over stars Tomas Soucek and new boy Vladimir Coufal.

Speculation emerged online that an outbreak of Covid-19 in the Czech Republic squad could rule the duo out of the Tottenham game.

 

There was even talk that Coufal was one of three players who tested positive.

But the right-back took to Twitter to set the record straight as both he and Soucek played in their country’s 2-1 win over Israel and should be available for the Hammers at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday.

The fourth boost for Moyes looks set to come in the transfer market.

Spurs could be missing Kane and Reguilon

Reports are gathering pace that West Ham are on the verge of signing exciting Brentford star Said Benrahma (Sky Sports).

Respected Athletic journalist David Ornstein says a medical is likely on Wednesday ahead of the capture.

And West Ham insider ExWHUemployee said any new signings this week should come in time to face Spurs.

There could be two further positives for Moyes, from the Tottenham camp.

Spurs talisman Harry Kane missed England’s win over Belgium through injury (The Mirror).

It remains to be seen whether he will be fit for Sunday. The same can be said for Kane’s new Tottenham teammate Sergio Reguilon (Evening Standard).

The flying left-back was injured playing for Spain and will be touch and go for the weekend.
