West Ham manager David Moyes will be absent from the touchline at the London Stadium on Sunday.

This development occurred after Moyes returned a second positive test for coronavirus.

According to Evening Standard, the West Ham manager was sent home from the ground on Tuesday night along with players Issa Diop and Josh Cullen after the club received news of their positive test results just 70 minutes before their Carabao Cup game against Hull City kicked off.

As part of the preventive measures carried out to avoid the spread of the deadly Coronavirus, Coach Moyes, Diop and Cullen were all re-tested within 24 hours of their result in the faint hope that the initial test was a false positive.

After the second tests confirmed they had contracted Covid-19, the three of them will be absent from Sunday’s meeting with Wolves, as well as Wednesday’s trip to Everton in the League Cup.

Although, Moyes will continue to be actively involved in managing the side despite being absent while he self-isolates.

The preventive measures will be a consistent thing by West Ham, just the way they had the training ground and stadium deep cleaned on Wednesday as well as the rest of the squad tested again.

Meanwhile,  it remains unclear as to whether any further cases have been detected ahead of the weekend, but the fixtures is set to go ahead.
