- Manager, Issa Diop and Josh Cullen return home
- Carabao Cup tie against Hull goes ahead
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.
