West Ham United manager David Moyes has given an update on Kurt Zouma’s well-being, over his team’s meeting with Brentford.
Of course, Stopper Zouma rang alarm bells at West Ham earlier today, after exiting the club’s trip to Brentford Community Stadium.
At first glance, the Frenchman appeared to have picked up a hamstring problem, which ultimately left Moyes with little choice but to pull Zuma out, and offer Issa Diop in his place.

Speaking to the media on the back of the action approaching in west London on Sunday, it was no surprise when the topic of his star defender’s well-being was brought up to the Hammers manager.
Moyes went on to confirm that Zuma had, in fact, “twisted his ankle”, albeit amid hopes that “it’s not so bad”.

Zuma’s interest in fitness was of course just the tip of the iceberg when it came to a totally miserable West Ham afternoon.
It came as Irons, undoubtedly keen to capitalize on mistakes by Arsenal, Manchester United and Wolves, was put in a position by Thomas Frank Brentford.
Goals by Brian Mbiomo and Evan Toni proved the difference on the day as West Ham saw any remaining hopes of a late Champions League push brought to what is likely to be a definitive end.
