West Ham injury boost

With the season entering its decisive stage, West Ham still maintains its now fading European qualification target, thanks to a demoralising loss to Fulham. The upcoming Europa League second leg against Bayer Leverkusen, currently at a 2-0 deficit, adds further pressure. Recent injuries have amplified anxieties amongst fans.

West Ham insider ExWHUEmployee offers a glimmer of hope on the injury front during “The West Ham Way Podcast.” Several players are poised to re-join the squad, bolstering David Moyes’ options.

Top scorer Jarrod Bowen is nearing a return, with an outside chance of featuring against Leverkusen on Thursday. The club remains cautious and hasn’t confirmed his availability yet.

Goalkeeper Alphonse Areola has resumed training and is likely to be available for the Premier League match against Crystal Palace on Sunday, given his role as the secondary cup goalkeeper.

Midfielder Kalvin Phillips and defender Konstantinos Mavropanos are also nearing a return. Phillips ,scarily, could potentially be available for the Leverkusen clash, while Mavropanos’ injury is considered minor.

The return of these players would be a significant boost for West Ham. Bowen’s goalscoring prowess is particularly crucial, while Areola, and Mavropanos add depth and quality to the squad. Their availability will significantly impact West Ham’s chances in both the Europa League and the Premier League.
