West Ham trio Nayef Aguerd, Tomas Soucek and Declan Rice are all expected to be “available” for the game against Manchester United, according to insider ExWHUEmployee.
The three players all missed the 3-0 defeat to Manchester City on Thursday due to illness but Ex claims they should be able to return to the matchday squad on Sunday:

With the Hammers still needing points to ensure they stay clear of the relegation zone, manager David Moyes will be glad to have the likes of Rice back in contention.
While United have had their issues away from home this season, Erik ten Hag’s side will still make things very difficult. It should be said that, despite losing to City midweek, West Ham weren’t overawed, even with some of their key players missing.
The 3-0 scoreline was rather harsh, although they will need to cut out the mistakes if they are to get the three points this weekend.
