West Ham United manager David Moyes is hoping his team can bounce back and take the positives from the win against Chelsea in the reverse fixture.

The Hammers are not exactly coming into the game with an impressive run.

They had three losses in a row from the past three games, although they were difficult games against Arsenal, Wolverhampton and Tottenham Hotspur.

However, West Ham had a win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge back in November, and Moyes urged his players to take inspiration from it.

Speaking at the press conference, he said (as quoted by Football London): “Well, I hope the team can take comfort from it, we’re looking for positives, we’re looking for things to keep us nice and high.

“When I was here last time we beat Chelsea at home and as you rightly said the players had a good result against them this season so we have to look at it as a real positive.”

Moyes was at Stamford Bridge when Chelsea defeated Manchester City last week and he praised both sides for the spectacles.

“I was one of the fortunate ones that went to see Chelsea against Manchester City in midweek and undoubtedly we saw two very, very good teams, two technically gifted teams, and obviously a really good game as well,” he said.

About his team ahead of the match, Moyes said Seb Haller and Angelo Ogbonna are getting closer to returning from injuries.

“We’ve got Arthur Masuaku who we’re trying to get back too, who rolled his ankle a couple of days before the restart. They’re all getting closer but we’re not sure they’ll be available for tomorrow,” he added.
