West Ham star handed fitness boost over Manchester United clash

It’s another weekend and Premier League will resume today, meanwhile, West Ham have been boosted by the news that their key defender Angelo Ogbonna could be fit to play against Manchester United on Sunday in order to continue their run-in as they chase a Champions League spot this season.

West Ham defender Ogbonna has been sidelined since the last clash against Manchester United in the FA Cup in mid-February. There is still doubt whether the Italian centre-half would play on Sunday or not.

In a prematch interview, West Ham manager revealed that their key defender is doing great.

David Moyes said: “Angelo is doing great, he is back. He is in the gym regularly and he is out of his boot.

“We’re expecting him to start doing some running. I am hoping that by the end of the international break we might have him back on the grass in some capacity. There are signs that we are getting him back.”

And due to the agreement in Jesse Lingard’s deal, their key frontman would definitely not play against his team Sunday.

“That would add to what we have already done this season, so if we can go to Old Trafford and pick up three points that would be an incredible achievement for us,” added Moyes.

“We have been on a really good run since the start of this year, we are in good form, the players have taken on all the games, we are winning and we want to keep that record going.

“Jesse is a big loss because he has had a big impact on the team and how we have played. He has been a positive signing for us since coming in in January so it is a loss to us – but we have got other people.

“What we wanted was competition for places, sort of around the number 11 and number 10 roles, and Jesse has given us that but we have other people who can do that so hopefully we can go there and show what we can do.”
