West Ham play host to Chelsea on Wednesday night at the London Stadium.

In giving his injury update for the clash, West Ham boss David Moyes was coy on if West Ham might be able to welcome back absentees Sebastien Haller and Angelo Ogbonna for the game.

Moyes said: “Seb Haller and Angelo Ogbonna are getting closer. We’ve got them out on the grass and among the team. They’re getting closer.

“We’ve got Arthur Masuaku who we’re trying to get back too, who rolled his ankle a couple of days before the restart. They’re all getting closer but we’re not sure they’ll be available for tomorrow.”

Giving his own injury update, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard said: “Christian (Pulisic) has felt a bit of tightness in his calf just as he came off against Leicester, so we’re managing him.

“I haven’t got an answer for it yet, it feels better than it did after the game so we’ll see by tomorrow.

“Andreas Christensen likewise a little bit is in the squad but we’ll have to see with another 24 hours, because of the tight turnaround.”
