Player News - West Ham United

Date: Team: Pos:

Reports have emerging star Reece Oxford looking for a significant weekly wage and a signing bonus to tie his near future to West Ham United.

With a ton of money coming into the Premier League in general and West Ham specifically, it's hard to blame the youngster for his big ask. His seemingly outlandish request becomes even more reasonable if the rumors of Manchester City and Manchester United being interested in him are true. Apparently one virtuoso performance against Arsenal at a young age is worth quite a lot.

Winston Reid turned in Dimitri Payet's set piece past David De Gea for the winner as West Ham beat Manchester United 3-2 to close the Boleyn Ground.

West Ham are on track to join Manchester United in the Europa League next season after moving up to sixth on the strength of their 3-2 win on Tuesday. Dimitri Payet, West Ham's player of the season, added twice to his assist tally with set pieces for the Hammers' second and third goals. In addition to his dramatic winner, Winston Reid put in a fantastic tackle on Marcus Rashford in the box with time running down to prevent a potential United equalizer.

A calf strain will bring an early end to Adrian’s season. The Spanish goalkeeper missed the home defeat to Swansea, and today, Slavan Bilic confirmed the 29-year-old would not be ready for the visit of Manchester United on Tuesday.

Despite dislocating his finger last season, Saturday was the first match Adrian had missed through injury since joining the club in the summer of 2013. Darren Randolph will deputise in his absence with the Republic of Ireland international expected to fill the void on the final day as well. Bilic reports no fresh injury concerns, but following the shock 1-4 loss to Swansea, the Croatian coach may look to freshen his side. Diafra Sakho, Enner Valencia, James Collins and James Tomkins all make a strong case for a recall as the Hammers push for a Europa League qualifying spot.

After a run of nine league games without a loss, West Ham United were humbled today with a 1-4 loss to Swansea City.

For the first 25 minutes of the match, the Hammers created many scoring chances and it looked as though it would only be a matter of time before they put another crooked number up on the scoreboard but Swansea were able to withstand the early barrage and find themselves the opening goal. A second goal just a few minutes later dampened the mood at the Boleyn Ground as the Irons showed cracks in their defense. Eventually down 0-3, they pulled a goal back when it appeared to have been scored by Diafra Sakho but it was judged to be a Swansea own goal. Darren Randolph was given the task to mind the net for West Ham today but he deserved little blame for the four goals that would eventually be shipped past him. Slaven Bilic's side may have entered the day with thoughts of a late push for a Champions League spot but now they must regain their composure and make sure they at least wrap up a place in next season's Europa League.

Mark Noble led West Ham to a huge win over West Brom by a score of 3-0.

Noble scored twice to give West Ham a very comfortable lead. He remains a solid midfielder but fantasy managers shouldn't expect to see this type of performance more than once a season. The other goal came from Cheikhou Kouyate, who is worth playing in very deep leagues only.

Mark Noble did what Saido Berahino couldn't on the weekend and converted two penalties in West Ham's 3-1 win over Watford at Upton Park.

The Hammers kept their momentum going with an emphatic 3-1 win over sliding Watford in mid-week Premier League action. Dimitri Payet fed the resurgent Andy Carroll for the Hammers opener and then it was a Mark Noble penalty on either side of Sebastien Prodl's goal that yielded the final score. Adrian also made a big play denying Troy Deeney from the spot in stoppage time to ensure that the Hornets didn't have a late comeback in them.

The absence of Diafra Sakho last weekend was shrouded in mystery. But speaking ahead of Wednesdays’ FA Cup quarter-final replay against Man United, Slavan Bilic boss confirmed: "The situation is very simple. He reported an injury after training on Friday."

A missed club signing followed by a cryptic social media post sent the rumour mill into overdrive on Saturday, there was talk of a falling out with Bilic and Sakho being disciplined by the club. Following the draw with Arsenal, the West Ham boss said the striker had "a minor knock" but Co-chairman David Gold suggested Sakho "didn’t feel well" which only served to fuel the fire. However, Head of Medical and Sports Science at the club - Stijn Vandenbroucke - issued an update on Tuesday confirming Sakho is injured: "Diafra picked up a minor right knee injury in training on Friday and we hope to see him back on the pitch either at the end of the week or the beginning of next week." Case closed.

Andy Carroll's first start in over three months was a special one, as he scored all three of West Ham United's goals to guide the Hammers to a 3-3 draw with Arsenal.

Quite the inspirational team selection by Slaven Bilic. It appeared in the opening 35 minutes that it simply wouldn't be West Ham's day. Manuel Lanzini had a goal incorrectly ruled offside while Arsenal would take a two goal lead. Carroll cut the deficit in half with a signature header from an Aaron Cresswell on 44 minutes. On the final possession of the half, Mark Noble lifted a ball into the area and Carroll volleyed home superbly after pouncing on a deflection of his initial shot. Just seven minutes into the second half, he put the Hammers ahead with yet another header, this time from a Michail Antonio cross. They could not hold their lead and would settle for a point in an instant classic of a Premier League match.

West Ham midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate will be available for the club's showdown with Arsenal this weekend after seeing his red card repealed.

The club immediately appealed Kouyate's sending off in a 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace on Saturday as the midfielder was set to serve a three-game ban. But Kouyate won his second appeal on 2016, the first came during the FA Cup win against Blackburn Rovers at the end of February, and will be immediately available for the club. Kouyate has started each of the last five Premier League matches since returning from a concussion and has started in 27 of the club's 31 matches this season.

Dimitri Payet was once again incredible in West Ham's 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace today.

West Ham had the lead but a late red card for Cheikhou Kouyate resulted in Crystal Palace earning an equalizer through Dwight Gayle. It was an extremely exciting match that included a spectacular free-kick from Dimitri Payet, who got the ball over the wall and into the top-90 perfectly. Payet is the most in-form fantasy player at the moment and is worth every penny.

James Tomkins (calf) has re-joined the first team in training but James Collins (hamstring) and Sam Byram will miss the game against Crystal Palace although the pair are progressing "really well."

Byram picked up an unspecified injury in training during the build-up to the London derby - at Stamford Bridge - in game week thirty-one and the defender is expected to be absent for another 7-10 days. Meanwhile, Collins returned to full training during the break but suffered a minor recurrence. Slaven Bilic also confirms that "some of our players are not back from international duty" which could leave them a little short for the Palace game. Victor Moses and Enner Valencia are among those who will be assessed.

French midfielder Dimitri Payet displayed some great skill in France's 3-2 win over the Netherlands and was praised by coach Didier Deschamps.

Payet created something at every chance he got and was just as good for France as he has been for West Ham. Deschamps has refused to give Payet a legitimate chance in the past and finally caved to public pressure this week. Payet is likely to be a France starter for the upcoming future as he is one of the best players on their roster.

Victor Moses is ineligible to face his parent club Chelsea tomorrow.

Victor Moses won't be able to face Chelsea tomorrow as that is part of his loan-contract that sent him to West Ham. Moses has not played well in recent weeks and has been relegated to a bench role, so he is not worth owning in regular leagues. You can feel free to drop him.

Mar 18 - 10:30 PM

West Ham are hoping to see James Collins back in action within the next 2-3 weeks after the defender limped off against Tottenham due to a hamstring strain.

Collins sustained his first injury of the season during the 1-nil win over Spurs in game week twenty-eight and the club remain optimistic that the 32-year-old will be available after the international break. Enner Valencia (ankle), Joey O’Brien (hamstring) and Victor Moses (quadriceps) re-joined the group in training this week and all three come into contention for the FA Cup clash against Man United. Winston Reid will return on Friday although he will need more time. Meanwhile, James Tomkins is in the final stage of his rehabilitation after recovering from a calf injury.
Mar 10 - 8:51 AM

West Ham has moved into the top five and just one point back of fourth-place Manchester City after a late comeback victory against 10-man Everton.

Dimitri Payet led a furious comeback from down 2-0 in the last 15 minutes in the match with a goal and assist. Following Michail Antonio's goal in the 78th minute off a cross from Mark Noble, Payet sent a similar dangerous cross into the penalty area that found second-half substitute Diafra Sakho to knot things up at 2-2 in the 81st minute. Then, with just stoppage time to play, Sakho returned the favor by finding Payet making a run towards goal as the Frenchman redirected the pass into the back of the net to steal the three points. Even after Kevin Mirallas was sent off in the 35th minute with a 1-0 lead, the West Ham defense, depleted by injuries and starting Cheikhou Kouyate and Reece Oxford on the back-line, gave up another goal before the furious comeback began.
