Angelo Ogbonna was missing from last night’s match day squad last night becoming the latest Hammer to fall sick.
Declan Rice, Tomas Soucek, Lucas Paqueta and Maxwel Cornet have all been sick in recent weeks and Oggy was the latest victim.
Luckily Kurt Zouma mad a surprise start last night replacing Ogbonna with centre back returning from ligament damage to play all ninety minutes in the European semi final.
There was fears that Zouma would be out for the remainder of the season but he proved all the medical team wrong in his quick recovery period.
.Post match David Moyes explained Zouma’s start by saying “It was partly due to Angelo, Angelo had a bit of illness which has been going around the camp as most of you know for a week or so. Angelo has had the illness, which sort of made my decision a bit easier that I had Kurt ready to come in. Thankfully, he was able to perform.”
