David Moyes has vowed to put on a show for the returning West Ham fans this season as the Scot prepares to take the club into Europe.

Moyes led West Ham to a sixth-placed finish last season with the club's highest ever Premier League points tally.

Having achieved so much behind closed doors, Moyes now wants to ensure that the entertainment continues in front of fans in the new season.

Stadiums are set to be full from the opening weekend on August 14 when West Ham visit Newcastle, before the Hammers host Leicester at the London Stadium on August 23 in their first home game of the season.

"We are excited because as we know it’s such a great stadium to host so many people," Moyes said.

"We have big, big crowds at every game now because the team has done so well. If I was a West Ham supporter I’d be wanting to get in and get a ticket to the game because what I’m seeing is Declan Rice, you’ve got Tomas, you’ve got Micky Antonio, we’ve got a really, really exciting team in the making at the moment, so I think I’d want to come and watch.

"And we’ll do our best to entertain them and we want them to come and support us, to get behind the team and support the players, chant their names and hopefully we’ll give them something to chant about.

"Everywhere I go people are talking about how good they thought we were to watch and what it was like, so I think the supporters will be desperate to get back and live and watch the games.

“The 10,000 who watched us beat Southampton in the last game of the season, I don’t think they’d be disappointed with that game and it was great to finish with such a win and obviously confirm our place in Europe as well. It was a big moment for us."
