Moyes confirms cases

David Moyes has confirmed that the Hammers have been struck down by a couple of COVID cases ahead of this week’s Carabao Cup quarter-final against Spurs.

The club head into this week’s last-eight clash against Spurs looking to repeat the heroics of the wins over the two Manchester clubs in previous rounds.

Spurs, by comparison, have beaten Wolves on penalties and squeaked past Burnley 1-0 in the competition.

Both sides have lengthy trophy droughts to try to end but the Hammers will be impeded by the fact that a couple of players are going to be missing through COVID.

Speaking prior to the game, Moyes told reporters, per the club’s official website: “We’re very good. The training ground has been very good and most are okay. We have got one or two with the virus, but most are very good and long may that continue.”

Spurs, by comparison, put out pretty much a full starting XI against Liverpool at the weekend, as they drew 2-2 with Jurgen Klopp’s side.

We understand that Spurs do have one or two issues with COVID, but that the players suffering wouldn’t be termed as first-teamers.
