Big Forest injury worries

By Hughie Southon

Nottingham Forest have a number of injury concerns as they head towards the London Stadium this weekend.

Defenders Serge Aurier (calf), Moussa Niakhaté (thigh) and Willy Boly (thigh), midfielder Scott McKenna (thigh), former Hammers midfielder Cheikhou Kouyaté (thigh) and Irons one time loanee forwards Jesse Lingard (knee) and Taiwo Awoniyi (groin).

Defender Ryan Yates (illness) should be back, but goalkeeper Dean Henderson (thigh) and full-back Giulian Biancone are definitely out.

West Ham United trio Kurt Zouma (hip), Paquetá (shoulder) and Maxwel Cornet (calf/illness) all missed last Sunday’s fixture at Tottenham Hotspur.

However,  the good news is that both Zouma and Cornet – finally – have been spotteed in training this week and that Paqueta is considered very likely to be included in the squad for the match.

Should that be the case the Hammers could line up like this: Fabianski, Coufal, Aguerd, Zouma, Emerson; Rice, Soucek, Paqueta, Bowen, Scamacca, and Ings who would be making a his starting debut .

  1. Wow – two forwards?

  2. To quote John Wayne : “that will be the day Pilgrim”.
