“Things are going to go well” under David Moyes, according to West Ham United forward Michail Antonio.

The 27-year-old, although currently out with a rib injury, has witnessed the Scottish manager’s immediate impact in east London and has a positive feeling.

Moyes was appointed the Hammers boss last Tuesday morning and took his first training session at Rush Green later that day.

On Wednesday, the former Everton and Manchester United boss conducted a double session and Antonio believes he has already made a great impression on the squad.

“Obviously I have not been able to train under him but right now, things are looking good,” last season’s top scorer said.

“He’s come in and things have been quite intense. 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.”

West Ham return to action on Sunday when they travel to Vicarage Road to face Watford following a fortnight without a match due to the international break.

And Antonio is confident that, under Moyes, the side’s league position is sure to improve.

“With the squad that we have, we definitely shouldn’t be in the situation that we are in.

“With a bit of structure and more belief and confidence, we will definitely be going up the league.”
