Lyon have suffered three massive injury blows ahead of their Europa League clash with West Ham on Thursday night.

The Hammers drew 1-1 with Lyon at the London Stadium last week in the first-leg.

In the end, it was a decent result for us and David Moyes would have been fairly happy with it having lost Aaron Cresswell to a ridiculous red card just before half-time.

The tie is very finely poised ahead of the second-leg against Lyon at the Groupama Stadium on Thursday night.

If Kurt Zouma is fit, we more than fancy our chances of getting a positive result against Lyon. Aaron Cresswell is suspended but aside from that, West Ham are pretty much at full-strength.

Meanwhile, Lyon have some big problems…

Lyon suffer three massive injury blows

The French side drew 1-1 with Strasbourg in Ligue 1 yesterday.

The result in itself was pretty disappointing for Lyon but Peter Bosz would have been far more concerned with the fact that three of his key men hobbled off with injuries during the match.

Goalkeeper Anthony Lopes, and midfielders Tanguy Ndombele and Houssem Aouar all limped off with injuries yesterday.

The Lyon injuries blows from yesterday will now give the West Ham players real impetus to go and take the game to the French side on Thursday.

There has been no official confirmation as to whether the three players mentioned above will actually miss the game on Thursday though. So much will depend on how they recover and the severity of their injuries.

Whatever happens, the West Ham players need to turn up. Play like they did against Brentford and Lyon will batter us.

If the real West Ham show up though, Lyon could be in for a very tough evening. COYI X
