Hammers insider delivers news of a huge double West Ham boost for Everton which will delight David Moyes and fans.
Moyes and West Ham fans will grinning from ear to ear today after a revelation from a club insider.
Nerves have been jangling at West Ham over the injury suffered by the brilliant Jarrod Bowen just as he hit top form.
The mysterious Bowen injury has had West Ham medics stumped according to Hammers boss Moyes (whufc.com).
Moyes has been without his star attacker since he hobbled off during the 1-0 defeat to Liverpool at the start of the month.
There was promising news when West Ham confirmed a scan showed no significant damage to Bowen’s foot after that Liverpool game.
Bu then a recent report from The Athletic claimed Bowen had fractured a bone in his foot and may be out longer than first feared.
The claim stated Bowen would potentially miss the game against Everton and both legs of the Europa League quarter-final against Lyon after the international break.
But today a Hammers insider speaking to Claret and Hugh delivered welcome news of a huge double West Ham boost for Everton which will delight Moyes.
Because both Bowen AND right-back Vladimir Coufal – who has been out of action since a hernia operation – are expected to be back in the squad for the home clash with Everton next Sunday, April 3rd.
“Both are expected to be involved as we await the return of Frank Lampard (with his) relegation threatened Toffees,” Claret and Hugh report in the story ‘Top Irons news as Lamps approaches’.
“It’s a match of the utmost importance to us as we can barely afford to drop a point from here on in if we hold genuine top six hopes and the news that Bowen and Coufal could be back is very welcome indeed as we head into the game.”
West Ham fans have been left to fester on that tired defeat to Spurs before the international break which was something of a buzzkill following the heroic Europa League last 16 victory over Sevilla.
So this news will undoubtedly put a spring in the step of every West Ham supporter as we close in on the big run in.
Having Bowen back is key to West Ham’s hopes of success. But don’t underestimate how crucial it will be to have Coufal back in the mix too with his vital experience.
And hopefully the Czech will be back to something like his best having been rid of the hernia pain that has blighted him all season.
