David Moyes has just shared a truly massive injury boost for West Ham ahead of our clash with Arsenal at the Emirates on Wednesday night.
The Hammers head to North London in two day’s time to take on Arsenal in a game that has taken on even greater significance after our draw away at Burnley.
David Moyes has worked wonders since taking over at West Ham for the second time back in December 2019. The fact that we are sitting in fourth spot in the Premier League table in December, are through to the last 16 of the Europa League and have a Carabao Cup quarter-final against Tottenham to look forward says all you need to know about our season so far.
The Scot raised the standards and because of that, the Hammers fans are now expectant of success. Perhaps too much so at times.
West Ham have struggled a bit since the players returned from the last international break last month, however, and we’re currently in the middle of a really patchy run of form.
Arsenal have been in the same boat this season. Mikel Arteta has struggled to get consistent performances out of his side this term.
It should be a cracking game of football at the Emirates on Wednesday night. The Hammers badly need a win and it seems as though there is some good news to digest.
David Moyes shares massive West Ham injury boost ahead of Arsenal clash
The Scot spoke to reporters yesterday and responded when asked whether Aaron Cresswell will be back and available for selection for the Arsenal game, as quoted by Football.London:
“I’m hoping so. We’re really short as you can see and will look to muck through the best we can. But I’ll wait and see when we get back tomorrow, see how he’s done today. He was in training today. So hopefully there might be some news when we get back tomorrow morning.”
We have missed Cresswell so much over the few games.
The 31-year-old’s turnaround over the past 18 months has been quite dramatic. It was only two years ago when most Hammers fans suggested that his legs had gone.
Cresswell is like a completely different payer now. We are reliant on him both from a defensive and offensive perspective.
Let’s hope that he is 100% ready for the Arsenal game. Having him back would be a huge boost for West Ham.
