A key source inside West Ham has made a huge claim about a star’s late fitness test for the Man United clash.

West Ham face Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Sunday afternoon live Sky Sports game.

A trip to face the fast-improving Red Devils in the Premier League will be a massive step up from the opposition the Hammers have faced this week, which saw wins over Bournemouth on Monday and then Silkeborg three days later.

West Ham sit within striking distance of Man United and the European spots.

Hammers boss David Moyes knows he will need his best players fit and firing to have a chance of victory against his old club.

Man United have a near fully fit squad to choose from bar Raphael Varane who was injured last week.

According to Moyes West Ham will be without record signing Lucas Paqueta for another week, Maxwel Cornet is still out injured and Nayef Aguerd will not be risked in Premier League matches before the World Cup.

Jarrod Bowen was another big injury doubt for the Man United clash too.

Ahead of the game at Old Trafford, the Scot said he will need to look at the extent of Bowen’s ankle knock on Friday.

“Jarrod Bowen had a bit of an ankle injury,” Moyes said ahead of the Red Devils clash (Football.London).

“I will asses it tomorrow, see how he is.

“I don’t know yet (if it is a serious injury), I don’t think it’s too bad but we will see tomorrow (Friday).”

Now a key source inside West Ham has made a huge claim about star’s late fitness test for Man United clash.

A West Ham insider has told Claret and Hugh that Bowen’s knock was only minor and he should be ok.

“Hammers hopes are high that Jarrod Bowen will be available for the game at Old Trafford following manager David Moyes admitting that the player has an injury issue,” Claret and Hugh report.

“A key London Stadium source discussing the position told us exclusively: “He has a minor ankle injury which is, hopefully ok but will take a last-minute fitness test.”

Bowen may not be hitting his usual heights so far this season – like so many other West Ham players – but he is crucial if we are to get anything at Man United given his brilliant workrate for the team and pace.

Let’s hope the insider is right and we see his name in the starting line-up when the teams are confirmed at 3.15pm.
