Lyon trio Anthony Lopes, Houssem Aouar and Tanguy Ndombele have all missed training this morning ahead of Thursday’s Europa League clash with West Ham.
That’s according to a report from RMC Sport who claim that it is unclear as to whether any of the three players mentioned above will be fit in time to face the Hammers.
The French and English clubs battled it out for a 1-1 draw in the first-leg at the London Stadium last week.
So it’s all very finely poised as we head into the second-leg at the Groupama Stadium in two day’s time.
Despite the shocking refereeing display from Felix Zwayer, West Ham refused to lose. And David Moyes would have been happy with the draw in the end.
The Scot might just fancy his team’s chances in Lyon, especially now that they could be missing three key men…
Lyon missing three keys players in training ahead of West Ham clash
RMC Sport claim that goalkeeper Anthony Lopes and midfield duo Houssem Aouar and Tanguy Ndombele were all absent from training this morning.
The Lyon trio suffered injuries during their 1-1 draw with Strasbourg on Sunday, as covered right here on Hammers News.
They could all recover in time for Thursday’s game, of course.
Not having them present at training today will undoubtedly be a big blow for Lyon and their manager Peter Bosz, however.
The West Ham players will obviously have to be at their very best if we are to beat the Ligue 1 side in the Groupama Stadium on Thursday night.
Lyon will have to be at their best against West Ham as well if they are to progress through to the semi-finals of the Europa League. And even if they are missing one of the three players mentioned above, they might well have their work cut-out.
