David Moyes has given a concerning update on three key players – Nayef Aguerd, Gianluca Scamacca and Emerson – who are collectively valued at £80m. This weekend, the Hammers face fellow relegation contenders Southampton in a crucial match at the London Stadium, writes the HammerNews.
A win could lift West Ham to as high as 13th place, but a loss could result in them dropping to the bottom of the table. The upcoming period of nine matches in 27 days is crucial for the team, as just four points separate the bottom nine clubs in the table, and it is anticipated that at least 36 points will be necessary to avoid relegation.
Amidst the speculation surrounding the future of David Moyes, West Ham’s upcoming match against Southampton is a crucial one that they must win. The Hammers have received some positive news as Southampton may be without their first-choice center-backs and top scorer, Che Adams. Fortunately for West Ham, their 11 senior players who participated in international games have not reported any injuries, giving the team a boost heading into the game.
In his pre-Southampton press conference, West Ham boss David Moyes has given an update on Nayef Aguerd, Gianluca Scamacca, and Emerson, who collectively cost the club £80m. Moyes expressed concern that all three players may be doubtful for the upcoming game, as they have returned from international duty with issues. Specifically, Moyes stated that Emerson is ill, Aguerd is dealing with a hip problem, and Scamacca is experiencing discomfort in his knee.
Moyes said in his press conference today: “We’ve got illness here and there and a couple of injuries (with the players coming back from international duty),”
“Emerson has been sick, Aguerd has a niggly hip and Scamacca has a sore knee, so we’ll see where we are.”
