This Friday evening West Ham United take on Leicester City, at the London Stadium, in a Premier League fixture.

It is the first home game of David Moyes reign since he took over from Slaven Bilic.

Today (Friday), Moyes held his pre-match press conference.

During the conference Moyes gave an insight into the current injury situation.

With regards to Marko Arnautovic, who was taken off in agony last week against Watford, the Austrian will be available to play with the injury that saw him writhing in pain being confirmed as a bad sprain.

Two players that will not be in consideration, although they have resumed training with the squad are Andre Ayew and Michail Antonio with Moyes confirming this is a game too early for the duo.

On the veteran defender James Collins, Moyes confirmed that the Welshman was also back in training but that it would be foolish to rush him back.

Finally, talking about the Hammers summer signing Javier Hernandez, the Mexican will miss this game but is expected to start some running again next week.
