West Ham United centre-back Kurt Zouma is likely to miss our game against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.

Tottenham play host to West Ham on Sunday afternoon in a game that is vitally important to both sides, but for very different reasons.

The Tottenham vs West Ham clash should be an absolute belter, but unfortunately for us it seems as though it may come too soon for one of our key players…

Kurt Zouma claim made ahead of Tottenham vs West Ham

According to Claret and Hugh, a website with close links to David Sullivan, the 28-year-old centre-back is very likely to miss the Spurs clash.

And that is a truly huge blow for the Hammers.

Our defensive performances are so much more solid when we have Zouma in the heart of our back-line.

Zouma is said to currently be wearing a protective boot, and because of that, is highly unlikely to feature in the London derby.

The Frenchman hasn’t played since suffering an injury for the Hammers against Everton on January 21st.

The sooner that we get Zouma back the better, obviously, especially with Nayef Aguerd out injured now as well.

The Tottenham game on Sunday is an absolutely vital one. David Moyes and his players are in desperate need of a result.

Our chances of achieving that will certainly diminish if West Ham defender Kurt Zouma doesn’t play though, that’s for sure.
