'Started to see him flourish': David Moyes backs West Ham United summer signing to explode soon

West Ham United begin their Europa Conference League campaign against Romanian side FCSB tonight.

Manager David Moyes spoke to the media, via Football London, ahead of the match.

Moyes’ side haven’t had the best start to their Premier League campaign, and currently sit in the relegation zone.

West Ham brought in eight new players this summer to bolster the squad that finished 7th last season.

It’s now up to Moyes to integrate his new players into his side.

Thilo Kehrer has played more minutes than any other new signing this season, and really impressed his manager.

On the other end of the spectrum, a pre-season injury has prevented Nayef Aguerd from making his debut.

One player David Moyes is getting ready to play more is winger Maxwel Cornet.

Speaking before tonight’s match, Moyes said: “I don’t think he was in great condition when he arrived.

“Had a great chance against Viborg. Started to see him flourish. Signs of him getting better. Hoping we get the benefit of that in the coming months.”

Moyes ready to play Cornet

Maxwel Cornet signed for the Hammers from relegated Burnley this summer for £17.5m, and was apparently convinced by Issa Diop to join the club.

Cornet is a versatile player, capable of playing as a left-back, left winger or a striker.

The 25-year-old has had a good start to life at West Ham, recording two assists in his two European games so far.

He should have opened his account for the Hammers at the weekend against Chelsea.

However, a controversial VAR decision ruled out the goal, which was later admitted to be a mistake.

The Ivorian has looked exciting in his appearances so far, and Moyes has to be ready to play Cornet more soon.

He could start his third Conference League game in a row tonight at the London Stadium.

And Hammers fans will be hoping Cornet opens his account soon for his new side.
