Tomas Soucek – reported to have an injury – would have been available to play against Newcastle had the game not been called off tomorrow (Sun)
But he will certainly be ready for action should he be required for the Europa Conference match against Silkeborg on Thursday evening/
The defensive midfielder took a kick in the leg against Chelsea according to Claret and Hugh’s London Stadium sources who are confident he will be ready.
However, whether David Moyes will choose to play him given the quite outstanding performance from Flynn Downes in the game against FCSB remains to be seen.
One thing seems certain however, the Czech Republic international is set to feel the pressure from the former Swansea City player if his first performance is any guide.
With Craig Dawson also very much on the mend Moyes has some interesting options for a game which gives the squad an opportunity of keeping up to speed.
