David Moyes has delivered a very big fitness boost for West Ham ahead of Sunday’s clash with Aston Villa.

Moyes will take his Hammers side to Villa Park to take on the Villans on Sunday afternoon for what should be a thrilling encounter.

West Ham are in the midst of a fine run of form having won our last two Premier League games, our last three Europa League matches and our Carabao Cup clash with Manchester City (on penalties).

Aston Villa, meanwhile, have struggled of late, having lost their last three Premier League games.

West Ham will be favourites but Villa will be no pushovers. They always play an attractive brand of attacking football and we will have to be on our very best form in order to win the game.

David Moyes shares very big fitness boost for West Ham

The Scot has a pretty much full-strength squad to choose from on Sunday.

One player who was a doubt is Alex Kral. It seems as though the Czech ace will be available for selection, however, having completed his isolation after contracting Covid.

Moyes spoke to reporters today and provided an update on Kral, as quoted by Football.London:

“Alex Kral has returned after isolating so he’s in a better place now. So we’re pretty good at the moment.”

That really is great news.

The Hammers have an option to buy the 23-year-old midfielder next season for around £12 million plus add-ons (ExWHUemployee).

Kral has made a slow start to life at the London Stadium.

The midfielder looked very good indeed against Manchester United last month, however. And he is undoubtedly a very good player in the making.

With Tomas Soucek having looked rather leggy on recent weeks, having Kral as an option again is a very timely boost for Moyes.
