Valencia rumour grows

ValenciaactionEnner Valenica is understood to be the latest injury worry to hit the Hammers.

ClaretandHugh is this afternoon hearing rumours that the Ecuadorian striker picked up a knock from the Aston Villa clash from which he has not fully recovered.

And it is likely that along with Diafra Sakho, Stewart Downing and Winston Reid he will face a fitness test ahead of the game against Everton at the weekend.

Manager Sam Allardyce admitted in his press conference that Sakho and Downing were both doubts and Reid too can be added to the list after www.physioroom.com revealed his may not make the match.

Valencia, however, comes as a surprise and we were told that his chances of making the game rested on the fitness test and that he was rated fifty/fifty.

However, the manager has given a thumbs-up to Andy Carroll’s fitness who now looks set to start against The Toffees.

  1. Sakho, downing and Valencia! Just what we needed!

    Reid we can cope with (may have to get used to this anyway), but to potentially be without our three main striking options this year is an unbelievable blow!

    Imo it now depends on the fitness of zarate(regardless of whether any of the above three make it). This would allow us to start with Cole and zarat( not ideal I know) and more importantly allow us to keep andy Carroll on the bench and to continue his rehabilitation at the correct pace.
    For the worst thing we could do would be to disasterously Rush him back prematurely and risk further devastating injury.
    We await the the fitness tests with interest and with fingers crossed! COYI!
