Life is sweet for West Ham United boss David Moyes at the moment and it just got a bit sweeter.

West Ham pulled off a second fantastic away win of the week when they came from behind to beat Leeds 2-1 at Elland Road.

Hammers fans were still on cloud nine following the 1-0 midweek win at Manchester United in the Carabao Cup.

Fredericks suffered worrying looking injury after setting up winner at Old Trafford

And they were sent back to east London happy after goals from Jarrod Bowen – with the help of former West Ham target Junior Firpo – and a last minute winner from Michail Antonio.

Moyes had a fully fit squad available at Leeds bar right-back Ryan Fredericks who went off at Old Trafford with a worrying looking groin injury the game before.

But insiders Claret and Hugh claim there is good news on Fredericks’s injury after a scan.

Insider claims West Ham have received a big boost after Fredericks injury scan

“West Ham’s sole injury concern has turned out to be not so worrying,” Claret and Hugh claim.

“But in fact the problem was with his thigh and following a scan it has become clear that the injury is low grade and will only keep him out for 10 days.

“That means should he be required he will be back in action for the game against Everton at Goodison Park after an international break.”

West Ham have a double header at home this week against Rapid Wien in the Europa League on Thursday night and then Brentford on Sunday.

Flash back for crucial, manic and difficult run of fixtures after international break

Fredericks will miss both of those games before the October international break kicks in.


And he will be back just in time for a manic and tough set of fixtures which starts with Everton away on October 17th.

That is followed by Genk at home in the Europa League, Tottenham at home, Man City at home in the Carabao Cup then trips to Aston Villa and Genk.

After that West Ham entertain Liverpool at the London Stadium before the last international break of the year in November.
