Hammers fear for player sickness victims

The Hammers fear for player sickness victims who may be in trouble for the Palace match on Sunday at the London Stadium.

West Ham boss David Moyes will check on Jarrod Bowen‘s injury with the medical staff before deciding on whether the No 20 will be involved against Crystal Palace. But we understand that he  is also waiting on sickness reports surrounding Mohammed Kudus, Vladimir Coufal and Edson Alvarez who have been suffering from a winter bug/virus. There are fears that one of two may come up short having been really ill over the last few days. Should they win the Hammers would move into eighth place should Brighton be beaten at Chelsea.

Moyes was unready to give anything away on the four admitting only that he had left a few players behind who had bits of viruses and flu-like symptoms. He added that Jarrod [Bowen] had his knee injury  injury so he’s one of the ones we’ll see on. I’ll pick up with the medical team on him and see what they feel, and that he would be looked at today ( Fri).

However, out insider believes that Bowen has a decent chance whilst being unprepared to become too hopeful on the others who have been ill.
