Gold: “Kouyate and the rest back for Burnley”


NobleWest Ham injury list reached a season high toll of seven on Sunday as James Collins suffered a groin strain.

But David Gold insists all players should be fit and available with the exception  of Andy Carroll by our next game when we face Burnley away on Saturday 18th October.

Kouyate was listed for a November 8th return date after recovering from a groin injury, Gold’s tweet suggests he has recovered quicker than expected saying I am hoping he will be available for Burnley when questioned.

Long term absentee Joey O’Brien should also be fit with Gold confirming he should be available for selection for Burnley.

Gold also insists Andy Carroll has every chance of returning in November  with Physio room giving 29th November as a return date which is the Newcastle at home match.

This means we are likely to face December with a fully fit squad unlike the winter of discontent last season.
