West Ham are understood to be struggling with what’s being described as ” a number of small injuries ” to defenders ahead of the Premier League Restart.
No names have been divulged but Angelo Ogbonna is known to be recovering from a setback and there have been doubts over the full fitness of Aaron Cresswell as we close in on the resumption of the programme.
But according to sources close to the training ground that may not be the full extent of the problem with one telling us on the ‘phone: “We are short on numbers at the back and a few are carrying small injuries although we expect them to recover.”
He added however that the main problems may lie ahead of that.
David Moyes has claimed consistently that the pressure of so many games in such a short time is a big concern and the current situation probably explains why young Ben John son has been added to the squad.
