West Ham United striker Carlton Cole is convinced their Dubai training camp will lift the players.
Cole is in no doubt the break will boost players' stamina levels.
"The boys will be re-charged and reinvigorated," he said. "We keep focused on training and doing the right things, but the difference is that you benefit from the warmer weather and it is in a different environment, just a change and it mixes it up for all the lads.
"I have always found it positive and we have come back to good results after trips like this.
"It is a chance for the team to also look at what we have done so far and what there is still to be done, talking and looking at this all together."
