Moyes updates Euro clash injury news


David Moyes has revealed that Michail Antonio is not part of the squad for the Europa Cup match in Freiburg tomorrow evening (Thurs).

He explained the the No 9 has not travelled to Germany as he has an injury but refrained from discussing its nature.

He added that Aaron Cresswell was still injured with we understand a minor hamstring problem and that Ben Johnson too has an injury.

That of course suggests that Emerson may well be involved on the left side of the defence although Moyes left that unconfirmed.

He added that the Hammers were involved against  a really good team, who have done very well over the last couple of years in the Bundesliga.

He added: “I think they’ve got stability, and that goes a long way, which shows at this club. They’ve certainly grown and got themselves in a good position.”

Moyes is sorry of course that our fans will be missing for such an important game admitting that after having such brilliant support away from home he is very disappointed.

He added: We’ve had some amazing games with them last year and we know tomorrow night will be tough.”
