West Ham boosted by Leeds injury news

|

West Ham will look to take big advantage of Leeds injury problems following the latest news from the Big Sam’s team.

There is now little  danger of the Hammers going down. But they have learned that the Yorkshire club will be missing four players for the Sunday Premier League fixture.

West Ham United have received a huge boost with the news that relegation rivals Leeds United are struggling with injury.

West Ham are boosted as Leeds injury news

Injury expert, Ben Dinnery says Luis Sinisterra, Tyler Adams and Stuart Dallas are all long-term absentees and are  “ruled out” against the Hammers.

Junior Firpo is the latest absentee after being sent off in late against Eddie Howe’s Newcastle side.

One other concern is Liam Cooper, with Dinnery rating the defender’s chances of playing at “50 per cent”.

Leeds are in really serious trouble. They have to go to the London Stadium and pick up all three points.

Four points from their last two fixtures are a must, and even that might not guarantee survival. And that leaves manager Sam Allardyce, meanwhile, desperate to beat his former club.
