West Ham have been handed an injury boost ahead of our clash with Spurs on the 19th February, with a key player of our bitter rivals ruled out.

David Moyes’ side head to North London next Sunday for a London derby, after seeing a so-far greatly improved run of form since the turn of 2023, with three wins and two draws from the six matches played in all competitions.

The trip to The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is one that is always earmarked as a big encounter for both sides, with a rivalry that runs deep and has produced many memorable moments over the years, and the news of player missing will be seen as a welcome boost for all connected with the club.

It has been revealed today that Spurs’ captain and France international Hugo Lloris will miss the match after sustaining a knee injury, which could rule the player out for around 6-8 weeks.

This is also coinciding with the possibility of injury returns for West Ha, with both Gianluca Scamacca and Kurt Zouma both working towards a return to action, to help continue to build on the momentum gained in recent weeks.

Prior to the match with Spurs however, our Hammers have another London derby to contend with, when Chelsea visit the London Stadium this Saturday – with many hopeful West Ham can add more points to the board as they play a Chelsea side struggling for consistency this season.

ExWHUEmployee will provide updates on the injury front this week, in the hope David Moyes might have more options available for the match against Graham Potters side.
