However, their Under-23's were in action on Wednesday night, with the club's youngsters still pushing towards the first time whilst many Hammers stars were out around the world.
West Ham's Under-23's were in action against Valencia last night, and claimed a 1-0 victory as winger Nathan Holland scored the only goal of the game.
Fans took to Twitter after the game to praise Holland, and it seems that they're not the only ones to have been blown away by the youngster.
Teammate Declan Rice took to Twitter earlier today to react to Holland scoring, replying with 'what a player' to a club tweet about his performance.
Rice took the steps from the West Ham Under-23's into the first team, and Holland will certainly be looking to do the same this season.
The former Everton man, 21, has only made one senior appearance for the Hammers, but he's becoming increasingly difficult to ignore – and Rice seemingly know West Ham have a real talent on their hands.
