West Ham United ace Manuel Lanzini faces a late fitness test ahead of this afternoon’s clash with Leicester City according to Claret and Hugh.
The Hammers welcome the Foxes to the London Stadium in a game that could have huge repercussions for both teams.
A win for West Ham and a place inside the top four will start to look like a genuine possibility.
Lose to Leicester, however, and Champions League football next season will be incredibly hard to achieve.
David Moyes already has limited options to choose from ahead of today’s match against Brendan Rodgers’ side.
Key players Declan Rice and Michail Antonio are both out. Meanwhile, Andriy Yarmolenko and Angelo Ogbonna will almost certainly miss today’s game.
West Ham insider shares further worrying injury news ahead of Leicester clash
Manuel Lanzini missed the Hammers’ last game against Wolves due to a slight knock.
Claret and Hugh claims the 28-year-old Argentinian ace faces a late fitness test ahead of this afternoon’s game.
With limited attacking options on the bench, not having Lanzini to call upon would be a blow for West Ham.
The former River Plate ace hasn’t been great by any means this season. He does possesses something that little bit different to everyone else at the London Stadium, however.
Let’s hope he makes it through the late fitness test because we might just need him in the latter stages against Leicester today.
