There has been a monumental boost for West Ham as a Sky Sports video shows injured duo Michail Antonio and Vladimir Coufal in full training.

Yes West Ham fans you read that correctly, two of the big doubts for the huge Europa Conference League semi-final against AZ Alkmaar are back.

David Moyes confirmed Michail Antonio was struggling with a calf injury after the first leg last Thursday night.

It was the striker who gave West Ham a 2-1 lead going into the second leg. And the in-form star has been one of West Ham’s key players in the last couple of months.

West Ham are massive and so is this team news

Vladimir Coufal was another big doubt after picking up a hamstring injury recently.

But there has been a monumental West Ham boost as Sky Sports video shows injured duo Antonio and Coufal in full training.

Sky Sports News cameras have been down at West Ham’s Rush Green training ground on Wednesday.

West Ham’s players were being put through their paces before the trip to Holland to face AZ on Thursday night.

And Moyes looks set to have a near fully fit first choice XI available judging by the video footage.

Monumental West Ham boost as Sky Sports video shows injured duo Michail Antonio and Vladimir Coufal in full training

Because Antonio and Coufal were both filmed in full training with the team, taking part in sprints and drills.

That is massive for West Ham. Behind Declan Rice and Jarrod Bowen, Coufal and Antonio are two of the team’s most important players.

You can see the video footage below.

Thilo Kehrer has been decent at right-back in Coufal’s absence.

But the Czech warrior had started to look a lot more like his old self of late so having him back is fantastic news.

West Ham are vying to be in the final in Prague where they will face either Basel or Fiorentina.

On paper West Ham would prefer Basel over the Italians. And the signs look good in that respect.

Because, like West Ham, Basel hold a 2-1 advantage after beating Fiorentina away.

And there is trouble in the Fiorentina camp ahead of the second leg.
