A win would make it six victories on the bounce in 2021 – West Ham’s best-ever start to a calendar year.
“Huge difference he makes,” said Moyes. “He is such an important player for us and I think he is still a bit off his best. If he gives a goal a game I won’t be complaining but I still see improvement from Mich.”
Having been able to change things around in the cup over the weekend and with a clean bill of health for first-team players, outside of Arthur Masuaku’s long-term injury, Moyes’s side picks itself.
“We’re okay [for injuries],” said Moyes. “Arthur has been out but apart from that we don’t have too many others.”
