Maxwel Cornet took part in training today ahead of West Ham United’s UEFA Europa Conference League clash with Silkeborg on Thursday night.

The Hammers travel to Denmark for the second time in less than a month to take on Silkeborg in match-day 2 of Group B in the UEFA Europa Conference League.

READ…Latest report surely means that ‘immense’ West Ham player will be sold in January

West Ham won our first game 3-1 against FCSB at the London Stadium last week.

It wasn’t the best of performances, certainly during the first-half, but the three points was all that mattered in the end.

A win against Silkeborg would set us up perfectly to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition in the new year.

Having a full compliment of players to choose from will be vitally important for David Moyes, with it looking likely that our game against Everton on Sunday will go ahead.

It was claimed that that wouldn’t be the case. Football London claimed that Maxwel Cornet suffered an injury when playing for West Ham against FCSB on Thursday night – one that could keep him out of the game in Demark on Thursday.

It appears as though there is no truth to those claims though…

The Ivorian joined the Hammers in the summer transfer window from Burnley.

Cornet has already impressed the West Ham fans with the odd cameo here and there. However, it will be vital for him to start producing the goods more consistently now.

Hopefully Moyes gives him regular game-time. It certainly seems as though he’ll be available for selection for West Ham United’s clash with Silkeborg.

Cornet was pictured training with the Hammers ahead of Thursday night’s huge game, via the club’s official website.

That’s great news for Moyes and the West Ham fans.

The Ivorian’s pace and power offers us something completely different down the left and right hand flanks.

Having Cornet available for Thursday night is a big boost and will undoubtedly help us get the three points that we need to stamp down our authority in Group B.

Hopefully West Ham comfortably beat Silkeborg in Denmark on Thursday night. The result is all that matters, but it would be nice if the boys put in a top-class performance as well.

And if Cornet starts, it will be a big night for him again as he looks to cement his place in the Hammers’ first-team.
