Team news: Moyes offers Ogbonna, Antonio updates

Angelo Ogbonna


West Ham United manager David Moyes offered an update on the fitness of Angelo Ogbonna and Michail Antonio in his Friday morning press conference looking ahead to Sunday's trip to Sheffield United.

The Hammers return to Premier League action this weekend following an international break which saw several of their first team players involved for their country, and Antonio and Ogbonna working their way back from injuries.

Ogbonna was forced off in West Ham's last outing against Fulham with a knock, while Antonio missed the last two games with a hamstring problem.

Moyes expects the Italy defender to be available for selection at Bramall Lane, but is still waiting to make a decision on forward Antonio.

"Michail is back training and we’ve got a couple of days yet to see how he is,” Moyes explained. “The truth is I can’t give you a complete answer [as to whether he’ll be available on Sunday], but he’s getting much closer that’s for sure.

“Angelo Ogbonna had a problem at the start of the week, but we think he’s fine now and they are the main two really."
