West Ham: David Moyes

David Moyes believes it will be a challenge for his West Ham side to play behind closed doors when they visit Rapid Vienna in the Europa League. Austria is under a full national lockdown as there was an increase in Covid-19 across Europe. This will be West Ham’s first match without fans since their first game of pre-season. West Ham has already qualified for the knockout stages of the competition but a win would ensure that they top the group.

“I think it is [a challenge],” West Ham manager David Moyes said. “I think it was something we hoped we wouldn’t see again, I think we all hoped that supporters were going to be back and we weren’t going to be back to the situation again. I hope we’re able to deal with it. I think when it first happened, everybody felt awkward with the voices, the shouts, the screams around the stadium.”

“Everybody will see during the competition we’ve tried to make sure we mix the first team and we mix all the players who are in it as much as we can. We’ve got a good squad,” he added. “The players have all performed really well throughout the competition, so we do want to use them all. We want to give people opportunities, but we can’t just always get everyone a game. We’ve got to try to stay strong in the games, we know the opposition is tough so we have to go in still with as much of a strong side as we can.”
