Cheikhou Kouyate has handed West Ham a major boost ahead of Wednesday's match against Burnley with his return.
In the past two Premier League matches, West Ham has clearly missed the versatile midfielder, who has dominated the central midfield while also provided excellent cover in defense when manager Slaven Bilic opts for a three-man back-line. Kouyate returns from a groin injury, but Bilic confirmed that Simone Zaza will miss out due to a knee injury. Said Bilic: "[Kouyate] trained normally on Monday with all the guys. He looked alright and looks fit for tomorrow. We have training and if nothing unusual happens he is alright. He’s a very important player for us and has showed that since he joined the club. When he doesn’t play it is a big blow. He’s that kind of player." Tue, Dec 13, 2016 05:46:00 PM
