Central defender Angelo Ogbonna is the only West Ham United player to be ever-present under David Moyes.

The Italian central defender, who is enjoying a productive season at the heart of the Hammers defence has played every minute of all 15 games Moyes has been in charge of since succeeding Slaven Bilic as Hammers boss back in November.

Ogbonna's closest rival for top spot is former Spanish under 21 Pedro Obiang, who whilst featuring in every match has been substituted twice at half time. The duo are the only two players to have been involved in all 15 fixtures.

Completing the top three is Arthur Masuaku, who has featured in each of the 15 matches managed by the new boss bar the first, a 2-0 defeat at Watford on 19 November.

In all, Moyes has used a total of 26 players with the least used five - Diafra Sakho, Edi Fernandes, Sam Byram, Dom Quina and Reece Oxford - having featured in less than 10% of those 15 fixtures.
