Maxwel Cornet and Kurt Zouma have been pictured back in training for West Ham United ahead of the Nottingham Forest game this weekend.

West Ham absolutely have to beat Forest in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, if we are to move away from the relegation zone and give everyone at the London Stadium a huge boost.

Hammers boss David Moyes is feeling the pressure and rightly so, given his poor performance in his role as manager this season.

Incredibly, the Scot is safe is his role as West Ham manager. However, I feel like that won’t be the case if we lose to Nottingham Forest.

And with that in mind, having some of the injured players back and available for selection will be vital for Moyes…

West Ham duo Cornet and Zouma back in training

The Ivorian winger has been out injured since October with a troublesome calf problem.

We have really missed Cornet’s pace and his absence has left us rather weak in the left wing department.

Meanwhile, Zouma has been missing from action since he suffered an injury against Everton last month. With Craig Dawson having left the London Stadium and Angelo Ogbonna well past his best, Zouma’s return to action is needed as a matter of urgency.

And it seems as though Cornet and Zouma are both closing in on a return for West Ham:

Now, Cornet definitely won’t be ready to start against Nottingham Forest. In fact, it’s debatable whether he’ll even be ready for a place on the substitute’s bench.

He has been out since October, so Moyes must ease him back into action slowly.

The same can be said of Zouma in all fairness. Every time he is rushed back to action he seems to break again.

Out of the two players though, Zouma is far more likely to play on Saturday than Cornet is. The fact that both of them are back in training is a massive boost for West Ham nonetheless.
