West Ham have received a timely injury boost ahead of their final home game of the Premier League season.
The Hammers put their recent Europa League semi-final exit to the back of their minds as they crushed Norwich City 4-0 at Carrow Road last Sunday but David Moyes was forced into three changes during the game.
Among them were goalscorer Michail Antonio who was withdrawn at half-time while Mark Noble replaced one of only two fit centre-backs Craig Dawson with doubts surrounding their fitness heading into Sunday’s meeting with City.
Would you want Ollie Watkins at West Ham?
However, Football injury expert and Sky Sports contributor Ben Dinnery has revealed a positive update surrounding the pair.
Speaking on the Premier FPL injuries YouTube channel he said:
(6:01)“Michail Antonio and also Craig Dawson calf and hip respectively, they took knocks last time out and David Moyes confirms that both players have trained and I’d be very surprised if neither of them players make the matchday squad.”
TIF Thoughts on West Ham…
It’s a positive update for the Scottish manager as they look to secure European football for another season.
Will Rice extend his West Ham contract?
In Mark Noble’s final home game as a hammer, the east London club will be looking to derail their guests’ title challenge and a win would see Moyes’ men move above Manchester United on goal difference and into sixth for a Europa League place.
Antonio and Dawson have played a huge part in another memorable campaign for the Irons ranking fifth and seventh respectively for minutes played at the club this term and they will be aiming to put the gloss on it in front of their own fans tomorrow.
