West Ham team news vs Newcastle

Maxwel Cornet has been injured since early October. David Moyes gave this update on the Ivorian on January 10: “I’ve not asked how his injection went, and they’ve not come and told me. I’ll need to check. He’s been to Paris to get an injection to try to free up the fibres and the tendons.”

Elsewhere, new signing Danny Ings and Gianluca Scamacca are both doubts vs Newcastle. The pair have had knee trouble and have both received injections but their involvement on Saturday is still touch and go.

Kurt Zouma is also expected to miss the clash with a thigh injury picked up last week: “Kurt has got a [quad] injury. He overstretched, which we think has tweaked it. His thigh has swollen up badly at the top, so we think there is a small tear.”
