David Moyes confirms West Ham injury blow ahead of Derby County

West Ham United head coach David Moyes has, on Saturday, confirmed a fresh personnel blow amongst his ranks.

Moyes and co. are of course currently in the thick of preparations for a return to action on Monday night.

After a timely return to winning ways in the league at the expense of Everton last weekend, this time round, the Irons will turn their attentions towards matters in the FA Cup.

A trip to Pride Park lies in wait, where West Ham will go head to head with League One outfit Derby County for a spot in the competition’s fifth round.

The efforts of Monday’s visitors to secure precisely that are already set to come sans the services of one high-profile name, with David Moyes having confirmed on Saturday that wide-man Maxwel Cornet remains some way off a return to competitive action.

And now, as alluded to above, a 2nd injury blow has been confirmed in east London.

The latest Hammers star in line for a spell on the sidelines? Kurt Zouma.

Speaking to the media on Saturday, Moyes revealed that defender Zouma has picked up a quad complaint, the extent of which is set to be determined courtesy of medical scans over the days ahead.
