West Ham boss Moyes says players ready for Premier League restart

West Ham United boss David Moyes says his players are ready for the Premier League restart.

Moyes is delighted with the training ground form of the squad.

He told whufc.com: "I'd like to think that we've been quite advanced in everything we've done.

"We understand the position we're in, and I've continually let the players know exactly what we need to do and why we need to be ready to go. We're trying to give ourselves every advantage we possibly can.

"We want the players to feel match-fit and sharp when it comes to the games. We're not now training to keep fit, we're training to go and win Premier League games – that's the difference. Maybe five or six weeks ago we were training to keep our fitness up, but that's completely changed now.

"Our game against Wolverhampton Wanderers is the goal, but then obviously shortly after that we've got Tottenham Hotspur. We're going to need all the squad, we're going to have to be fit and well, and we want to try and get off to a good start in those games."
