West Ham United defender Vladimir Coufal stays an injury doubt for the Hammers’ approaching Premier League fixture.
What’s the current?
That’s according to a report by Claret & & Hugh, who claim that, after missing out on the 1-1 draw with Newcastle United last weekend as an outcome of a repeating groin injury, the right-back is 50/50 for the visit of Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday afternoon.
Discussing the present condition of the 29-year-old, the West Ham insider stated: “Vladimir Coufal remains 50/50 for the game after reporting a flare-up of his groin injury and need to he be not available then it’s likely Ben Johnson will be the replacement following a poor first half from Ryan Fredericks against Newcastle United on Saturday.”
Are you positive of an outcome against Wolves?
Yes Vote No Vote Moyes will be sweating With Ryan Fredericks undoubtedly enduring a torrid afternoon against the Magpies last time out– as Claret & & Hugh recommend– with the defender being withdrawn at half-time in the stalemate, the fact that Coufal stays a doubt for this weekend’s fixture is sure to have left David Moyes sweating.
Undoubtedly, while the ₤ 10.8m-rated Czech Republic international has actually seen his form tail off in current weeks, the right-back has nevertheless been a stable option on the right of Moyes’ backline over his 22 Premier League appearances this season, registering 3 helps, developing four big chances and helping his side keep 4 clean sheets, as well as making approximately 0.9 interceptions, 1.7 tackles, 0.8 essential passes, two clearances and winning 4.1 duels per game.
League season? 57 62 67 72 These returns have actually seen the ₤ 27k-per-week defender average a SofaScore match ranking of 6.81, ranking him as the Hammers’ 14th-best entertainer in the leading flight of English football.
As such, needs to Coufal indeed be ruled out of Sunday’s fixture it would unquestionably come as a huge blow to Moyes and his side– especially with the Irons in rather desperate need of a win if they are to keep their top-four hopes alive.
