Hammers and Villa have injury concerns

Both the Hammers and Villa have some injury worries as we approach yet another crucial game at the London Stadium.

However, as we reported earlier Michail Antonio could be available after suffering a minor calf issue in the game against Larnaca in Cyprus.

However, Flynn Downes (ankle) and Lucas Paquetá (calf) both suffered problems in the game and we are told it is too early to give and confirmation on whether or not they will be available.

Łukasz Fabiański is recovering from a fractured eye socket after surgery but Vladi  Coufal is unlikely to be available having been diagnosed as having a plantar fascia issue in his heel which could take some time to heal.

Aston Villa are reported to be definitely without Philippe Coutinho (thigh) and Boubacar Kamara (foot), but there remain hopes that Diego Carlos (lower leg) and Leander Dendoncker (personal reasons) could be available for this incredibly important game..
