Moyes to make big late decisions


West Ham will assess the fitness of the recently ill Emerson, as well as Nayef Aguerd and Gianluca Scamacca, who are nursing minor injuries ahead of tomorrow’s game.

The manager is planning late checks on the three and a decision on who takes the central striking role will be made  close to kick off with Danny Ings of course maybe having a point or two prove against his former club

Lukasz Fabianski and Michail Antonio are back in training, while Vladimir Coufal played for the Czech Republic on his comeback from a heel injury and David Moyes is hoping the two international appearances will  have got him up to speed for the Hammers.

The Saints however remain in trouble apparently with Armel Bella-Kotchap will miss out for Southampton because of the recurrence of a shoulder problem.

Mohammed Salisu and Che Adams missed midweek internationals through injury and although both are being monitored iur understanding the odds are against them making an appearance in yet another must win match for two the sides with a point between them at the bottom.
