Hammers boost ahead of Everton clash


Emerson suspended

West Ham may have received a boost for the game against Everton with news that several of the opposition’s players could be missing from Sean Dyche’s team.

The Hammers really need a result after their recent slump and assuming they receive no injury problems of their own in the Europa League will be looking to field a fully fit side.

Everton, however, could have up to four players missing from a game they will be desperate to win or from which to get a draw at least.

It won’t be easy for in addition to missing Ashley Young through suspension they will be without a trio of injured first teamers.

Premier Injuries report that Dele Alli, Seamus Coleman and Andre Gomes will be missing whilst the hammers will be without the suspended Emerson.

He is likely to be replaced by Ben Johnson as, although Aaron Cresswell has recovered from a hamstring injury, he is obviously not match fit
