Hammers receive huge injury boost

West Ham United manager David Moyes has delivered a surprising double injury boost, revealing positive news about top scorer Jarrod Bowen and star striker Michail Antonio ahead of the crucial clash against Burnley at Turf Moor, writes the Hammer.News. The Hammers faced a worrisome international break with Antonio, Bowen, and Mohammed Kudus all nursing injuries, but Moyes’ latest updates offer a glimmer of hope for the attacking duo.

Amid initial concerns and assessments, both Bowen and Antonio suffered knee injuries, raising fears of an extended absence. However, Moyes, in his pre-Burnley press conference on Friday, shared optimistic news about the duo’s recovery.

“Michail has got a small injury,” Moyes stated. “It’s not serious. It will probably keep him out for a couple of weeks. I think, give or take, two weeks. I don’t want to nail down an exact time scan but about that long. We hope Jarrod will be available tomorrow against Burnley, but we will make a decision on that tomorrow.”

This revelation means Bowen stands a chance of maintaining his impressive record, having missed only two of West Ham’s 138 Premier League games since joining in January 2020. The potential return of both Bowen and Antonio provides a significant boost for Moyes as West Ham aims to secure vital points against Burnley.
