Who did West Ham United face in their opening fixture of the 2020/21 Premier League season?

He said: “Ings would be an absolutely brilliant signing, I’m a massive fan of Danny Ings.

“If West Ham could get a top eight, top six [finish], dare I say it? That deal could happen. I can’t see why that deal couldn’t happen. We’ll have more money in the summer due to finishing higher in the league.

“Danny Ings will look at it and be like, ‘Hey, Moyes is doing a fantastic job at West Ham, they have European football for next season, why not go there? I’m not going to be the main man at Tottenham because that’s Harry ’s team; I’m not going to be the main man at Man City because that’s Raheem Sterling’s team, Kevin and so on.

“Not going to be the main man at Chelsea because they have about 10 strikers.”
