David Moyes provides an update on Declan Rice and Aaron Cresswell and West Ham’s top four hopes

Newcastle vs West Ham

David Moyes takes his West Ham side up to Newcastle tomorrow lunchtime in what is a big game at both ends of the table.

Newcastle are of course fighting for their Premier League lives, sitting in 17th and although they beat Burnley 2-1 last time out and are 6 points ahead of Fulham, they are not safe just yet.

West Ham, on the other hand, are flying and are genuine contenders for a top four finish. Last week they held on to beat Leicester and sit in 4th place, one point behind the Foxes in 3rd and one point ahead of Chelsea in 5th.

David Moyes spoke to the media this morning and spoke about the task of maintaining their challenge of finishing in the Champions League spots.

 

“We feel as if we have to win our games and if we do that it’ll give us a chance. We’re ahead of Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham at the moment and it’ll be hard to stay above clubs like that, but we’ll take one game at a time and see where we end up.”

He also provided an update on his squad ahead of their trip north.

“We’re not going to have Declan back tomorrow and we don’t have Micky Antonio either.” 

“Aaron Cresswell picked up a bit of an injury on Sunday and we need to check him out and like every other club we’re getting bumps and bruises. We’ll make a decision on Aaron today. He’s a doubt we hope he’ll be ok.”

“Since we’ve come back from international duty, injuries have been quite heavy throughout the league. We won’t put a time frame on Declan or Micky, but we hope they will be able to contribute before the end of the season, that’s for sure.”

Moyes returned to talk more on Rice later in the press conference and added:

“Declan is training really well but it’s all gym based at the moment. He’s working really hard in the gym because he wants to get back as quick as he can.

Of course it’s a blow for any club to lose Declan, but at the moment we’ve been able to carry it and we hope that continues.” 

A win tomorrow will keep West Ham in the race for the top 4 and if that happens, then David Moyes will rightly be in consideration for manager of the year.
