Major West Ham injury blow before Everton

David Moyes

Everton vs West Ham

Arguably the most important match in the Premier League on Wednesday is at Goodison Park.

Everton and West Ham face off in a battle between two of the worst teams in the Premier League right now.

It has been a disastrous last couple of months for Everton, a period in which has seen them slip into 16th and having conceded the most goals in the Premier League this season.

In total, Everton have conceded 28 goals, 17 of which have been conceded since the start of October.

Defeat against the Hammers could see them drop into the bottom three.

West Ham are yet to win since David Moyes’ appointment.

Injury blow for David Moyes

On the eve of the Everton game, West Ham have suffered another significant injury loss.

Welsh international defender James Collins made his return from injury on Tuesday for West Ham U23s.

Collins hadn’t featured for the first-team since suffering an ankle injury in September.

Sadly for Collins, his comeback only lasted 24 minutes before he was given the hook.

It’s unclear how badly Collins was injured. Was he subbed out of the game as a precaution, or has he suffered a fresh blow?

West Ham have several injury headaches at the moment.

Marko Arnautovic is set to undergo a late fitness test to determine whether he is ready to return to action after a wrist injury.

Meanwhile, Javier Hernandez and Sam Byram remain unable to return from injury as of yet.

The Hammers continue to be without Jose Fonte, Michel Antonio and James Collins.
