Latest West Ham Injury News: Updates On Lanzini And Soucek

West Ham manager David Moyes is likely to have only two players missing when the Hammers line up against Newcastle this weekend.

Issa Diop, who has been struggling with illness, as well as a calf injury, featured in the 5-3 defeat to Brentford on Saturday, while Robert Snodgrass was also involved as he steps up his recovery from a back problem.

One player who was missing from the friendly, however, was Manuel Lanzini, with the Argentinian international being rested over fears that he may aggravate a minor thigh injury. He should be ready to face the Magpies, though.



Declan Rice has also overcome an ankle problem and featured in England’s 1-0 win against Iceland but Tomas Soucek could well be missing on Saturday due to a COVID-19 scare.

The Czech international reportedly came into direct contact with a masseuse who later tested positive for the virus. Although it is believed the midfielder has not contracted it himself, he will need to self-isolate.
