Mavropanos has marked Moyes’ card

West Ham boss David Moyes has revealed that Vladimir Coufal is the only regular first team player he has had to leave in London for tomorrow’s Europa Cup clash against Olympiacos.

The Czech international has complained of feeling a “bit tight” and as a result has been excluded from the squad which faces its third game in the group stage.

However he also revealed that both Aaron Cresswell and Ben Johnson have travelled having recovered from injuries.

Ben is the more likely to start on the left side of defence with Cressie, not near match fitness, with possibly Kehrer coming in at right back.

Moyes shared the pre-match presser with Greece international Mavropanos explaining that he had been in discussion with the central defender onĀ  the opposition and knows about their tough players.

And he added that the backroom staff had one as much work as possible on a team which has taken just one point from its first two group games.
