West Ham duo Kurt Zouma and Tomas Soucek could be back for our game against Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday.

And some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the news.

Zouma has been missing from action since December 4th when he suffered a hamstring tendon injury during our win over Chelsea at the London Stadium.

Meanwhile, Tomas Soucek has been ever present for West Ham this season right up until our game against Norwich City last Wednesday. The Czech midfielder missed that game and our defeat at home to Leeds on Sunday afternoon.

Thankfully though, Football.London have claimed that both players are set to be back for our clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

That is absolutely brilliant news.

West Ham have looked shaky to say the least without Zouma and with Issa Diop playing at the heart of our defence.

Meanwhile, we have really missed Soucek’s aerial ability both defensively and in the final third during our last two matches.

Having both players back will give everyone a much-needed boost ahead of our clash with Man United.

Saturday’s game at Old Trafford will be our final fixture before the two-week winter break. So a positive result will be crucial for the Hammers, especially given the fact that Manchester United are right on our coat-tails in the Premier League table.

West Ham fans react on Twitter to Kurt Zouma and Tomas Soucek update

The Hammers are in real need of a boost after our disappointing 3-2 defeat to Leeds at the London Stadium on Sunday.

And having Zouma and Soucek back at Old Trafford will provide us with just that. Mark Noble is allegedly back as well and there’s still an outside chance that Said Benrahma could return to the squad, if Algeria fail to beat Ivory Coast in the final group stage game of the Africa Cup of Nations tomorrow.
