Team News: Yarmolenko & Vlašić updates

Andriy Yarmolenko

 

David Moyes says West Ham United will continue to monitor the fitness of Andriy Yarmolenko and Nikola Vlašić ahead of Sunday's Premier League meeting with Liverpool.

The pair sat out Thursday's UEFA Europa League tie at Genk with minor niggles and the boss said a decision would be made over their involvement closer to the time of Sunday's London Stadium test.

The boss once again utilised his squad for the game in Belgium and had praise for the players who have stepped into the team and performed at various times.

"Andriy Yarmolenko had a little bit of an injury before we went away to Genk and Nikola Vlašić as well, so we’ll see how they are," he explained.

"We’re just back, we’re picking ourselves back up, we’ve know we’ve got a quick turnaround for the Liverpool game, so hopefully we’ll all be OK.

"We are being tested at the moment because we’re having regular games. We lost a couple of players in midweek to small niggles, nothing serious, but that limited us a little bit, but that can easily happen.

"At the moment, we’ve got a pretty strong squad and anyone who has come in has done a great job, I’ve got to say. You can see the amount of games we’re playing at the moment, but everyone is doing a good job and playing well."
