Moyes explains Ogbonna/Collins absences

David Moyes has revealed that both Angelo Ogbonna and James Collins are both sidelined today via illness and injury. Speaking just before the game the Hammers boss said: James has a little hamstring injury and Angelo is just feeling unwell.

He indicated that Chicharito is involved up front given his recent good form but refused to dub this a “must-win” game in particular.

He said: “Every game is vital – all games are to be won and I really don’t remember it ever being any other way. We all know that’s the case in the Premier League.”

The Hammers will be confronted by their former player Andre Ayew who starts his first game for the Swans at the Liberty Stadium this afternoon.

Ayew rejoined his former club in the winter transfer window for £18 million.

  1. Judging by the sounds of it, wasn’t just Collins and Ogbonna missing from central defence… rumour is we might be in for Jackson Martinez who has been released we certainly need some goals if we are going to concede 4 a game, you would have to argue we look more solid with Joao Mario in midfield, perhaps against Burnley we will have to change system to match them and play two genuine strikers in a 442, not sure why Huggill isn’t getting on even as a sub, perhaps he was another Sully punt and not a Moyes signing after all.

  2. As repeatedly observed, Mr Moyes will lead us into the Championship. Can you explain why though, Mr Moyes? Can you explain why we played so ‘despicably’ today? Actually I’m resigned to us being relegated if only for the consolation prize…parting company with Mr Moyes. My fear is the Hammers will become the next Coventry, Leeds…Sunderland.

  3. Ps: As much as I have no faith whatsoever in the strategic leadership competence of the owners of the club I love, nor Lady Brady and Mr Moyes, I do respect and apprecîate the skills, efforts and commitment of Winston Reid. His injury is a terrible personal blow and my heart goes out to him. Best wishes and prayers for a speedy recovery Winston! You are loved.
