West Ham: Moyes still without Cornet for Southampton clash

West Ham: Moyes still without Cornet for Southampton clash -West Ham News

West Ham United manager David Moyes will be without winger Maxwel Cornet again for their Premier League clash with Southampton.

The Lowdown: Hammers flying high…

The Hammers have picked up a stable run of form again after their torrid August and September months where they managed just one win against Aston Villa.

West Ham have picked up four victories in their last four games across all competitions, including solid wins against Wolves and Fulham between their UEFA Europa Conference League campaign.

The pressure has eased on Moyes’ position ahead of their clash on the south coast this afternoon and it is arguable they are favourites to come away from Southampton with all three points.

It appears West Ham have regained momentum just on time, but as per a new update, they will be without an ‘exciting’ player today.

The Latest: Moyes without Cornet for Southampton…

Giving a team news update ahead of their 2pm kick off, Moyes claims former Burnley star Cornet will be unavailable to feature again with the attacker still suffering from a calf strain.

He explained (via whufc.com):

“Maxwel has had a small calf strain, so we have got to be careful with him. Obviously, he’s not available for the Southampton game.”

The Verdict: Setback…

Cornet finished 2021/2022 as Burnley’s top goal scorer and attempted their joint-highest rate of shots at goal per 90 – highlighting his real threat (WhoScored).

Hammers fans! Do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

As West Ham seek to build upon their recent run, Cornet’s involvement could have provided that extra bit of sting in the attacking areas or, at the very least, could have been a solid option off the bench.

Alas, it appears supporters will have to wait longer for his return to action.
