Michail Antonio has noticed one thing different about Moyes at West Ham
By Laura O’Leary
The currently injured Michail Antonio gave his early verdict on how things are going for new West Ham manager David Moyes and made positive predictions.
When covering the Ebbsfleet United v Leyton Orient game on BT Sport, the 27-year-old revealed what he had observed since Moyes took over.
He said: “Things are looking good to be honest, he has come in and seems quite intense. Everything’s quite different, he’s out there, standing with the boys during training – he takes training himself.
“He is very involved and I see positive things, I feel like things are gonna go well under him.”
The winger is yet to train under his new boss due to a rib injury, an injury which also kept him from being involved in the Hammers’ last game against Liverpool.

The game against Liverpool ended up being Slaven Bilic’s last match in charge, as he was dismissed the next day on November 6.
Moyes was then confirmed to be the new Hammers boss on November 7, signing a short term contract with the club.
West Ham are 18th in the Premier League after achieving only nine points from their first 11 games.
Antonio has featured in nine of those league games for the Hammers, and has managed to score only one goal.
The 27-year-old has been at West Ham since September 2015, after he joined the side from Championship Nottingham Forest.
The winger is contracted to the Hammers until June 2021, after signing a contract extension earlier this year.
Moyes’ first match in charge of West Ham will be against Watford at Vicarage Road on November 19.
