Massive double boost for Hammers


James Ward-Prowse and Vladimir Coufal were spotted in Irons training today despite those suggestions they could miss the match against Manchester City.

Claret and Hugh revealed earlier they had been told Ward-Prowse was fit to play as things stood despite stories that he had missed training on Monday.

Now Sky Sports has revealed that both he and Coufal have been seen in training at Rush Green with the right back having taken a knock in the international break.

It’s top news for the Hammers as currently City have four players doubtful for a match which if the hammers win will see them go above this season’s unbeaten League leaders in the Premier League standings.

We can expect to see JWP joined by Paqueta and possibly Mo Kudus across a hugely impressive midfield although with Alvarez not returning to the club until late afternoon tomorrow there is a doubt about him starting with only 24 hours training available to him.
