West Ham United’s first-team squad have continued to ramp up their preparations for the new 2021/22 Premier League season with a short training camp at Pennyhill Park.

The luxurious five-star hotel and spa has played host to manager David Moyes, his coaching staff and his playing squad in the build-up to the final fixture of pre-season: Saturday’s exciting Betway Cup encounter with Atalanta at London Stadium.

On Tuesday, after an activation session in the morning and a swift warm-up in the Surrey sunshine, Moyes, along with first-team coaches Paul Nevin, Kevin Nolan, Stuart Pearce and Billy McKinlay, led the players through a series of on-the-ball sessions, culminating in a classic finishing competition.

The trip also saw a return to Club training for recent UEFA Euro 2020 finalist Declan Rice, with the midfielder having enjoyed a short holiday abroad following England’s historic run in the competition.

New signing Alphonse Areola was also on show, training alongside his fellow shot-stoppers and goalkeeping coach Xavi Valero as the Frenchman prepares for what could be his debut appearance on Saturday after signing on loan from Paris Saint-Germain. 

With confidence high off the back of a Club record-setting season, every player was in good spirits as they look forward to welcoming tens of thousands of West Ham supporters back to London Stadium for the first time in 18 months.

Saturday’s Betway Cup promises to be quite the occasion against an Atalanta side who have become one of Europe's most entertaining and free-scoring teams in recent seasons. 

Both teams have qualified for Europe for this season, with the Hammers going straight into the UEFA Europa League group stage for the first time, and the Serie A side qualifying for the UEFA Champions League for the third year in a row.

Now, they will visit east London with tens of thousands of Hammers set to return to London Stadium as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted by the Government.
