West Ham United's first team squad continued their preparations for the return of Premier League action by holding a training game at London Stadium this weekend.

David Moyes kept a watchful eye over his players as they count down to kicking-off the second part of the COVID-19 affected campaign on Saturday 20 June.

The practice match was the second the Hammers have held at London Stadium since the Premier League moved to Phase Two of the Return to Training protocol at the end of May.

After holding a 60-minute game the previous weekend, the Irons returned to Stratford for a second warm-up fixture, with the squad being split into two halves, one wearing the Home kit and the other sporting the all-white Away strip.

With the match being played in controlled conditions adhering to the Return to Training protocol, including members of the backroom staff acting as match officials, the players worked on tactics, team shape and set pieces, while also building valuable match fitness.

The Hammers will host Wolverhampton Wanderers at London Stadium on Saturday 20 June at 5.30pm before making the short trip to north London to take on Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday 23 June at 8.15pm.

Chelsea will then visit London Stadium on Wednesday 1 July at 8.15pm, with all three fixtures being broadcast live in the UK by Sky Sports.

Before then, Moyes' men will participate in further warm-up fixtures, so keep a close eye on our channels for coverage of those matches.
