Former West Ham United striker John Hartson has told the club's official website that Marko Arnautovic is now a "typical David Moyes player" as the Austrian continues to thrive under the guidance of the Scottish manager.
The 28-year-old flopped during the first part of the season under Slaven Bilic, but the Austrian has upped his game under Moyes with seven goals in his last 10 Premier League appearances for the Hammers.
Hartson, who also played for Celtic, Arsenal and Wimbledon, believed former Manchester United manager Moyes is bringing the best out of Arnautovic as he works on the attacker adding goals to his game as well as his defensive nous.
The former Wales striker also lauded his ex-national teammate James Collins, who continues to go from strength to strength despite being in his mid thirties. Collins is out of contract at the London Stadium in the summer.
“West Ham carry a threat and Marko leads the attack, he has been a different player since David arrived,” said Hartson. "David has sat down with Marko and reminded him he is a good player and his responsibility as a West Ham player.
"David has clearly worked on the other side of his game and he is now creating and scoring, while he is also working hard on the defensive side of his game. You could almost say he has become a typical David Moyes player.
“Ginge is a great lad and has done really well, I’m really proud of him. He has had a really good career. Ginge is a head on a stick and is as brave as a lion and I’m not surprised he has had such a long and successful spell in the Premier League."
Costing a club-record fee, Arnautovic's form has coincided with West Ham's rise away from a potential relegation scrap in the Premier League - as has Collins's return to the side after suffering numerous injuries in 2017.
The duo are expected to combine once again in Moyes' starting line-up as the Hammers look to bounce back from a disappointing 4-1 loss at Anfield when they go up against Swansea City on Saturday afternoon at the Liberty Stadium.
