It seems that West Ham may have some of their top players potentially missing for the game against Newcastle United on Saturday afternoon at Upton Park.
Sam Allardyce – injuries for West Ham
Sam has a number of his players who will probably not make the game against the Magpies, and he has also confessed that at the moment he thinks Newcastle are the most difficult team to beat of any team in the Premier League.
This is what big Sam has said today at his press conference:
“We have got Stuart Downing and Chieck Kouyate training today, so I think the only other possibility will be Mark Noble, who came off injured last Saturday, but obviously the rest will not be available I don’t think.¨
“Plus of course we’ve lost Winston Reid on a suspension this weekend.” “It’s not good at this particular time of the year”
“It’s not what we want but we’ve got to try and manage the situation by getting the result on Saturday that we should’ve got against Everton but failed to do so.”
“I think that Newcastle are the most difficult team to beat in the Premier League, apart from Chelsea, on the form they have shown at this moment in time.¨
“So it will be a massively big game for us.”
The other players who are injured ate their two strikers – Enner Valencia with a knock and Diafra Sakho with a back injury – but somehow we think these two lads will be playing. Alex Song is also a doubt with a knee injury.
West Ham have six injures on Physioroom.com and Newcastle have a massive twelve.
We are still to hear from Alan Pardew on which players could be back for the game at Upton Park – and it’s interesting Sam thinks Newcastle are currently the most difficult side to beat in the Premier League, apart from Chelsea – who we will meet at home a week on Saturday.
