West Ham injury update

Ahead of the game, a West Ham injury update has been provided.

The east Londoners have seriously struggled with fitness problems this year but David Moyes has just two injury concerns heading into Thursday’s meeting.

Italian full-back Emerson is working his way back to fitness from the leg injury he suffered in the first-leg defeat at the Stadion am Wolfswinkel last week:

“We’ll just need to see how Emerson is, as we’re not sure how he is yet, so that would be probably our main one,” Moyes stated when asked for a team news update ahead of Thursday’s tie.

The Scotsman, however, added that another member of his squad will definitely be ruled out for the second leg:

“Maxi Cornet is back here [at Rush Green] at the moment after being away getting some treatment, so he won’t be fit for this game,” Moyes said.
