According to a recent report by Claret and Hugh, West Ham United have scraped through with a clean bill of health following an exhausting contest against Aston Villa away at Villa Park on Monday night. A West Ham insider shared an injury update with Claret and Hugh on the phone and said, “Everybody is fine. It was the kind of game which was so keenly fought some injuries may have been expected but last night’s squad will be available for action on Sunday.”
West Ham’s Impressive Start To This Campaign
This recent development will be a welcome bit of news for anyone associated with the Hammers. Manuel Pellegrini’s men are set to take on Manchester United at the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon. So the West Ham players would need to be at full strength if they are to claim a positive result in front of their home supporters this weekend.
The East London outfit are currently occupying the 8th spot in the Premier League standings, having won two, drawn two and lost one of their five league matches thus far. Pellegrini will be aware that his side could have an outside chance of securing a top 6 finish if he can find a way to gain some favourable results in the coming weeks.
The upcoming encounter against the Red Devils is expected to be a stern test for the Hammers. However, they should have their players well-rested while Man United will travel to Kazakhstan to face off against Astana in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday night.
The Hammers Have Still Got A Couple Of Players Out Injured
Pellegrini has got both Winston Reid and Xande Silva out injured. However, the Chilean head coach doesn’t have any fresh injury problems to cope with ahead of this weekend’s clash. Therefore, the Hammers will quietly confident about their chances of success against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men on Sunday.
No Injuries Sustained Vs Aston Villa: Huge Boost For Pellegrini?
Having all of the first-teamers available will be a massive boost for West Ham heading into the Man United game as their progress has often been hindered by injuries to some of their key personnel in the recent past.
Both Manuel Lanzini and Angelo Ogbonna had a productive game against the Villans while Sebastien Haller is getting better with each match this season. Thus, they will thrive at the opportunity of earning more game time in the coming weeks as the fixtures come thick and fast for the Hammers across all competitions.
