According to a report from Football.London, West Ham could be set for a huge double boost ahead of their clash with Sheffield United in nine days time with Michail Antonio and Angelo Ogbonna closing in on returns from injury.

Antonio has been out injured since suffering a slight hamstring strain against Manchester City at the London Stadium three weeks ago.

Ogbonna, meanwhile, went off injured with a suspected calf strain against Fulham last weekend.

The 30-year-old Englishman and the 32-year-old Italian are both hugely influential players for West Ham.

David Moyes will be desperate to have them both back and available for selection as soon as possible.

They are arguably our two most important players after all.

 

And it seems as though the Scot might just get his wish.

Football.London claims that both Antonio and Ogbonna could be back in time for the Hammers’ clash with Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Sunday November 22nd.

Let’s hope that Football.London are spot on and both players are available.

If Ogbonna is ready, he will undoubtedly be thrust straight back into the starting line-up for the Blades clash.

Meanwhile, Antonio will likely be nursed back to full fitness. You can’t be too careful when it comes to hamstrings.

Nevertheless, having both players back and available selection after the international break will be a huge boost for everyone involved with West Ham.
