West Ham take on Manchester City in our Premier League openers on Sunday and David Moyes has provided an injury update ahead of the game.
The Hammers have made some really impressive signings already this summer.
West Ham boss David Moyes has brought Nayef Aguerd, Flynn Downes and Gianluca Scamacca to the London Stadium and has also made Alphonse Areola’s loan deal permanent. We are also allegedly closing in on a deal to sign Maxwel Cornet.
Meanwhile, Manchester City have brought in Erling Haaland, Kalvin Phillips and Julian Alvarez. Not bad eh?
City were incredible last season and they will be the team to beat again this term. West Ham did well against Pep Guardiola’s side last season, drawing 2-2 with them at the London Stadium.
We will have to go some to do the same this time around on Sunday though…
David Moyes provides injury update ahead of West Ham vs Manchester City
Nayef Aguerd is definitely out injured whilst Angelo Ogbonna is not ready to play Premier League football just yet.
Meanwhile, Scamacca won’t be involved on Sunday according to Moyes whilst Cornet likely hasn’t been registered in time.
The Hammers clearly have our work cut out before the game has even started!
Moyes was speaking to reporters today and admitted that things aren’t looking good from an injury perspective, as quoted by WHUFC.com:
“We have quite a lot of concerns but I’m certainly not going to give them to you! Angelo is playing this afternoon for the U21s. He had his first 90 minutes last week and he’s doing really well, but not ready yet to be considered for the first team yet. He’s coming along nicely and hopefully in three or four weeks will be mich closer.”
The West Ham players will have to be at their very best if they are to get a positive result against Manchester City on Sunday.
We all now how good City are. One thing in our favour though is the fact that they are notoriously slow starters. Hopefully the Hammers can catch them cold.
And any kind of result for West Ham against Manchester City this weekend would be a positive thing for the East London club.
