West Ham United fans in the Transfer Tavern will be looking ahead to their clash with Stoke City on Monday as they will be confident that a positive result will help to secure Premier League football.
The Hammers are coming off the back of a victory against Southampton and a draw with Chelsea, giving David Moyes’ side some momentum and the locals will have been buoyed by the news coming out of London Stadium.
The former Manchester United manager has revealed that Andy Carroll, James Collins and Manuel Lanzini could all potentially be fit for the clash with the Potters, giving punters some encouragement, after the trio all returned to training.
“Andy is back in training,” Moyes told the club’s official website.
“We got him back at the start of the week and we will keep monitoring him. He’s trained for a few days, so we’ll see how he is. He’s obviously not played for eleven weeks, and I’ve got that in my mind as well.
“He’s champing at the bit, but that’s the same for the other players we’ve had out like Manuel Lanzini and James Collins who have only been out for four or five weeks.”
Carroll has been out with a broken ankle, whilst Collins and Lanzini have both been out for the past month with a hamstring and knee problem respectively. As you can imagine, this news has gone down a storm amongst the punters propping up our bar, who now believe Premier League survival is all but secure.
The West Ham locals will be feeling confident about their clash with fellow relegation battlers after the positive news from the club about injury updates and the Hammers will be looking to get three points on Monday.
