David Moyes has admitted that Emerson Palmieri is a fresh injury concern for West Ham, in his latest update.
West Ham face Leicester in the Premier League on Sunday before the huge Europa Conference League final against Fiorentina on June 7th, so David Moyes will obviously be desperate for a clean bill of health.
As things stand, Gianluca Scamacca is the only long-term injury concern.
However, it appears as though the striker’s Italian teammate Emerson Palmieri is another worry ahead of our massive clash with Fiorentina in 12 day’s time.
Moyes shared the news on the 28-year-old during his press-conference this afternoon…
Fresh blow for West Ham as Moyes says 28-year-old has suffered knee injury in latest update
The Hammers boss addressed the media today, ahead of our clash with Leicester City on Sunday.
And Moyes responded when asked by reporters whether he has any fresh injury news to report, as quoted by Football.London:
“Emerson had a knock to his knee, so I just need to check how he is. He’s been out today but we will wait to see how he is.”
Now, Aaron Cresswell is probably in line to start the Europa Conference League final.
However, Emerson is a great option for Moyes, and I actually believe he’s far superior to the 33-year-old Hammers stalwart.
Having him unavailable for this weekend’s game against Leicester will be a big blow for West Ham, because it means Moyes will then most likely have to start Cresswell. And should he suffer an injury at the King Power Stadium, then we really will be in trouble.
Let’s hope that Emerson’s knee injury isn’t too serious, and he’s fit and ready to play this weekend and on June 7th if need be.
