David Moyes has just shared a huge injury concern for West Ham United ahead of our Europa League clash with Rapid Vienna tonight.
The Hammers welcome the Austrian outfit to the London Stadium on match-day two of the competition.
West Ham got their Europa League campaign off to a fine start with a 2-0 win away at Dinamo Zagreb two weeks ago whilst Rapid Vienna lost to Genk.
A win tonight and we will be in great shape to qualify from our group to the knockout stages.
In truth, West Ham should win comfortably but the players must approach the game with full focus and commitment.
We may be slightly understrength as well according to the gaffer.
David Moyes has just shared a huge injury concern for West Ham
Vladimir Coufal is a doubt for tonight’s clash with Rapid Vienna according to Moyes, as quoted by WHUFC.com:
“Ryan [Fredericks] not available from the injury. We’ve got a bit of doubt about Vladimir Coufal as well. Apart from that, we’ve got a good feeling about the team, and we’ll be ready to go again.”
Having Coufal unavailable would obviously be a huge blow for the Hammers.
It could also be a blessing in disguise, however.
The 29-year-old has looked rather jaded during the early stages of the season, so a night off may well do him the world of good.
Ben Johnson is more than capable of filling in and it would actually be good to see the youngster play in his proper position for once!
Coufal’s injury is still a concern nonetheless. Especially if he doesn’t recover in time for our clash with Brentford on Sunday.
