David Moyes

West Ham United have returned three positive coronavirus tests ahead of the weekend clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers including manager David Moyes. The club released a statement ahead of Tuesday’s Carabao Cup third round match at home to Championship side Hull City. Moyes, defender Issa Diop and midfielder Josh Cullen tested positive for COVID-19 ahead of the cup fixture. Both Diop and Cullen were due to start before being pulled out of the squad and returning home from the London Stadium with assistant manager Alan Irvine taking charge in Moyes’ absence.

West Ham club statement read: “West Ham United can confirm that David Moyes, Issa Diop and Josh Cullen have returned positive tests for COVID-19. The club’s medical team were informed of the test results as the team were at London Stadium preparing for this evening’s Carabao Cup third round tie against Hull City. The manager and both players immediately left the stadium and have returned home. All three, who are asymptomatic, will now follow Public Health England and Premier League guidelines and protocols. Everyone at West Ham United send their best wishes to David, Issa and Josh. Tuesday’s match will go ahead as planned, with assistant manager Alan Irvine taking charge of the team.”

West Ham host Wolves on Sunday in a 7pm kick-off in the Premier League. Wolves have taken three points from the opening two fixtures, recording an impressive 2-0 win against Sheffield United before losing 3-1 to Manchester City. West Ham lost both of theirs, being beaten 2-0 by Newcastle United and 2-1 by Arsenal.
