Aguerd was a small concern as well, having missed the game against Leeds on Sunday due to a dead leg.

However, it seems as though the Morocco international will now be fit to play against the Foxes this weekend…

David Moyes shares huge Nayef Aguerd boost ahead of Leicester vs West Ham clash

The Scot was speaking to reporters this afternoon, ahead of our game against the Foxes at the King power Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

And Moyes responded when asked if Aguerd is ready to return, having missed out against Leeds, as quoted by Football.London:

“Yes, he will be. Nayef is available. He’s trained today so we expect him to be back. He missed out with a dead leg he picked up against the game on the Thursday against Alkmaar.”

Having the 27-year-old centre-back is great news.

Sure, he has had some shaky moments over the past couple of months but when he’s on top form, we are a much better side.

Judging by Moyes’s comments, Aguerd will start the Leicester vs West Ham clash this weekend.

Let’s just hope that he comes through it unscathed.
