Great news on the injury front as Michail Antonio was captured recovering from a dead leg on West Ham’s official video footage at Rush Green training ground with the full squad before jetting off to Holland.
Another surprising but welcome sight was Vladimir Coufal also captured fully training with the first team squad after recovering from a hamstring strain which was thought to keep him out for weeks. Like Kurt Zouma, Coufal is a quick healer and has made quicker-than-expected progress and was also on the plane to Holland.
In his pre-match presser in Holland Moyes said “Micky has travelled, so has Vladimir. They are both doing well so hopefully they will both have a chance of playing. Everything else seems OK at the moment so hopefully we are in the clear.”
There was no sign of Gianluca Scamacca in the training video; the striker made a surprise visit to Rush Green yesterday after his return to the UK but wasn’t wearing a training kit indicating it could have been a social visit to say hi to his teammates.
Whether the Italian striker has travelled to Holland to support his teammates is unknown.
