Antonio enthused by Moyes effect

West Ham winger Michail Antonio believes David Moyes had made an impressive start in his new role.

The 27-year-old has been unable to take part in the Scot's initial training sessions due to a rib injury, but believes the 54-year-old Scot will have a positive effect on a failing squad.

"He’s come in and things have been quite intense," Antonio told whufc.com. "Everything’s quite different.

"He’s out there, he’s standing with the boys, he’s taking training himself and he’s very involved. I see positive things. I feel like things are going to go well under him.

"With the squad that we have, we definitely shouldn’t be in the situation that we are in. With a bit more belief and confidence, we will definitely be going up the league."

Speaking at the weekend, Moyes insisted that everybody would be given the opportunity to shine - regardless of the condition of their relationship with his predecessor, Slaven Bilic.

"It’s a clean slate for the entire squad," he said. "It will obviously take time for the players to fully understand our style and methods but the initial signs are very encouraging – they’ve bought into what we are trying to do and that’s a good base for us to build on.

“Everybody will get their opportunity to impress us and there have certainly been no decisions made about individuals. There’s a lot of quality here and I’m confident the players will all bring something different to the table."
