David Moyes leaves West Ham game after Covid-19 positive test

David Moyes and two of West Ham’s players, Issa Diop and Josh Cullen, were forced to leave the London Stadium and go home after returning positive tests for Covid-19 shortly before West Ham’s Carabao Cup tie against Hull on Tuesday night.

The West Ham manager did not take his place on the touchline at kick-off and there was confusion before the game when Diop and Cullen were replaced in the starting lineup by Harrison Ashby and Jack Wilshere. News of the change to the team came before West Ham had emerged for their warm-up.

A West Ham spokesman said: “West Ham United can confirm that David Moyes, Issa Diop and Josh Cullen have returned positive tests for Covid-19. All three, who are asymptomatic, will now follow Public Health England and Premier League guidelines and protocols.

“Everyone at West Ham United send their best wishes to David, Issa and Josh.”
