David Moyes has identified the latest trio of West Ham players who are unwell, a setback that follows their exit from the Carabao Cup at Anfield. Prior to the Carabao Cup quarter-final against Liverpool, it was reported that several West Ham players were dealing with illness. The quick turnaround is causing concern for West Ham’s upcoming Premier League match against Manchester United.

Inside sources at West Ham disclosed that the team would not be operating at full strength against Liverpool due to multiple players falling ill and displaying signs of fatigue. This was evident on the field as West Ham suffered a comprehensive 5-1 defeat to Liverpool, who made six changes to their lineup. Manchester United, having secured a 0-0 draw against Liverpool at Anfield, is set to face West Ham in the upcoming Saturday lunchtime fixture at the London Stadium.

David Moyes, speaking on Sky Sports, announced the latest trio of players affected by illness ahead of the clash with Manchester United. A sickness bug has been circulating in the West Ham dressing room, and as the team prepares to host Manchester United, there are no signs of improvement. Moyes disclosed that key defender Nayef Aguerd, winger Maxwel Cornet, and left-back Aaron Cresswell have all fallen ill, just 48 hours before the match against Manchester United.

Moyes mentioned that Cresswell’s condition had improved enough for him to be on the bench at Anfield, but the lingering effects of the illness still persist. The announcement by Moyes may cause frustration among West Ham fans, particularly those who traveled to Merseyside for the game before Christmas, facing the challenge of no available trains home.

Moyes highlighted that Nayef Aguerd and Maxi Cornet are currently dealing with the illness, and while Aaron Cresswell has shown some improvement, the situation is still impacting the team. Notably, the absence of Cornet and Cresswell may not significantly affect the team, as they have not been regular starters under Moyes. However, the availability of Aguerd against Manchester United remains uncertain and will depend on his recovery from the illness.
