West Ham United have no fresh injury concerns ahead of their match against Aston Villa, as reported by BBC Sport.
The other big piece of injury news for the Hammers, is that Michail Antonio has had his operation on the hamstring issue he sustained in the Carabao Cup victory over Newport County, which is expected to keep him out of action for the rest of the calendar year.
This will be a welcome boost to Manuel Pellegrini, who has already had to deal with injuries to the likes of Sebastien Haller and Felipe Anderson, as per The Standard, as well as Mark Noble during the opening four games of the campaign.
What this will mean, is that the manager will likely be able to play the same team which earned a 2-0 win over Norwich City before the international break, earning the club’s first clean sheet of the campaign.
This was arguably the club’s best performance of the season to this point, with the highest average WhoScored rating so far, having had 18 shots and the aforementioned clean sheet.
This will certainly be a boost for Pellegrini and his side, especially considering he had players going away during the international break, which can bring about fear of injury to a key player.
The update will certainly add confidence for the Hammers ahead of their clash with Aston Villa.
