The midfielder fell awkwardly during training and was taken to hospital but the Hammers have confirmed, however, the 25-year-old is not seriously injured, and he is expected to be ready for Sunday’s clash with Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

“Cheikhou Kouyate departed training early on Tuesday after landing awkwardly on his arm, but has been given the all-clear to train on Wednesday after going to hospital for a medical assessment,” a statement on the club website said.

    Thats a result,makes the midfield selection interesting now.Should be no need for Nolan in midfield.Got a feeling that someone else will make way for Kouyate though.Noble or Valencia on the bench i suspect.

    noble will be dropped thats is for sure and Nolan will lead the team out once again I wish I was not going now
