Moyes will ask players to dig into their energy reserves
Team news for today’s Premier League clash at Craven Cottage between West Ham and Fulham:
Both West Ham and Fulham enter the fixture in good form, securing midweek victories against Tottenham and Nottingham Forest, respectively. Hammers manager David Moyes emphasized the need for his players to showcase their impressive fitness levels once again.
Despite Moyes discussing fatigue and squad rotation, a strong line-up is expected for this encounter. West Ham have effectively managed injuries this season, boasting an almost fully fit squad for Moyes to choose from.
Alphonse Areola, absent in Thursday’s win against Spurs due to a wrist problem, is not expected to face a long-term setback, according to the Hammers gaffer. Michail Antonio is still in the recovery phase from an injury sustained during international duty and is not expected to feature.
Former Hammer Issa Diop remains unavailable for the hosts this Sunday, nursing a foot injury, and is not anticipated to return for the weekend’s match.
On the Fulham side, forward Rodrigo Muniz is nearing a return after a knee injury, and manager Marco Silva is hopeful that Adama Traoré has recovered from a thigh problem in time for the clash.
