Slaven Bilic is pleased with the extra time he has had to prepare his squad ahead of the match against Huddersfield Town.
The Hammers have had various players away on international duty and the extra 48 hours is a boon as the manager bids to regroup after three defeats.
The squad will train at London Stadium twice over the weekend after a four month break from their home ground .
Bilic said: “Firstly, it’s good to play at home again – it’s been a long time. We train at the stadium on Saturday and Sunday and to go into the dressing room, to feel it more before.
“The Spurs game [which we won 1-0 in May] is a good memory… and we’re expecting a similar atmosphere. It’s a Monday night game and it’s our first game there.
“It helps we have those extra days. We had players who came back today or yesterday, because we don’t only have European players, but Africa and South America and Mexico and they’re long trips. I’m pleased we play Monday, because it gives us a couple more training days.”
Glad for that but I don’t particularly like Monday night games and wish they would stop them.
