Moyes, along with assistant coaches Kevin Nolan and Paul Nevin, have made it a point to utilise the physicality of their players and have been working extra hard on set-piece drills on the training pitch.


The senior coaching staff’s efforts to raise the standards of their team from dead-ball situations have borne fruit as they have scored 32 goals from set-piece situations since Moyes took the reins again at the London Stadium.



Cresswell, who is among the players in charge of set-piece duties, has revealed that Moyes and his fellow first team coaches take great pride in turning the Hammers into a nightmare to deal with from dead-ball scenarios.


The full-back stressed that the whole team consistently work hard on perfecting set-pieces routines, and acknowledged it is good to have multiple players to aim for when delivering the ball into the box.



“We work on it on a Friday and always spend time on it”, Cresswell told West Ham’s official site.


“The Gaffer, Kevin and Nev take a lot of pride in it and we’ve scored the most set-piece goals of anyone over the last two years.



“The work is there and we’ve had some fantastic results off the back of them.


“It always helps when you have got Daws, Angelo, Kurt, Issa, Tomas, Mick… as you’ve got so many people to aim for and as a defender it’s your worst nightmare and not what you wanting to be marking against!”


The Hammers are back on the road in the Premier League at the weekend and will travel to the Midlands to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers.
