Moyes gives injury update

David Moyes will  able to send his strongest possible side to Manchester City tomorrow with the exception of Angelo Ogbonna.
The manager has no further injuries on his hands and looks likely to field the same team as took the field for the famous victory over Spurs last weekend.
That would see Issa Diop continuing to partner Craig Dawson who has been in quite outstanding form this season but like the rest of the team now faces his biggest test of all at the Etihad.
Pep Guardiola’s outfit have scored 59 goals in their last 19 games in all competitions and are obviously clear favourites against our fourth placed Hammers.
A top  performance though could bring us something although in reality we will need to be at our very best and maybe City a little off theirs.
Most would be happy with a draw such as we managed against the leaders at the London Stadium.
Updating the injury situation a his presser this morning the boss said: “At the moment we seem okay. We’ve still got Arthur Masuaku coming back and Andriy Yarmolenko has a medial ligament injury.

Ryan Fredericks picked up a groin injury which is not serious – it’s touch and go, so we’ll have to see how he is after training today.”

And on the challenge facing the boys he added: “If you’re talking about challenging Manchester City, you’re talking about challenging a team in the top three in the world.

That’s a big ask for any team. We’ll try and take Man City on in some way and try and cause them difficulties, but you need to be football stupid not to understand the quality that Man City have got and how they’re playing at this moment in time.”

  1. I fear toe to toe with Man C – they are better than anyone at that and would love it. I would advocate back 3/5 by including Ben Johnson. Then Dec, Tomas, and a floating front 3 of Bowen, Lingard and Antonio. We are going to need to defend well to earn the right to play. COYI

  2. Fredericks seems to have a lot of niggles
