West Ham United boss David Moyes appears to have been given a massive boost ahead of Saturday’s game against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Moyes must plot a way to beat Nuno Espirito Santo’s impressive Wolves outfit as West Ham resume their battle against relegation.

The Hammers have nine games in six weeks to secure safety.

The Wolves game is one of five at home for West Ham before the season’s end, so the Hammers must look to take full advantage.

West Ham injury concerns ahead of Wolves

Ahead of the return to action, West Ham had three big injury concerns.

Key defender Angelo Ogbonna was a major doubt having barely trained of late. The Italian also missed both of West Ham’s warm-up friendlies against QPR and Crystal Palace.

Captain Mark Noble also did not feature against Palace and was said to be touch and go for the Wolves game.

And Arthur Masuaku had also picked up an injury.

Ogbonna and Noble give Moyes a major boost

But West Ham had a timely boost on Wednesday when both Ogbonna and Noble returned to training.

 

The pair were spotted in pictures from West Ham’s training session at Rush Green on Wednesday.

Whether the duo are fit enough to actually play is another matter entirely.

Every point is crucial from here on in but Moyes must also manage his squad carefully for a busy schedule.

But are duo fit enough to play?

If Ogbonna does not make it that will probably mean a place in the side for Fabian Balbuena.

And it will more than likely mean a place new 20-man squad for untested summer signing Goncalo Cardoso.

If Noble is not passed fit it could see West Ham go with a midfield including Tomas Soucek, Declan Rice and Jarrod Bowen.

It would also open the door for Jack Wilshere to try and rescue his West Ham career.
