Maxwel Cornet and Kurt Zouma, who have been sidelined with calf and knee injuries respectively, have both been spotted in training this week, providing a double injury boost for the Hammers.

Moyes confirmed that Maxwel Cornet, who has not played for the Hammers since October 1, is nearing a return after their game against Tottenham last Sunday.

Jesse Lingard, who previously played for the Hammers on loan and made a significant impact, may come back to haunt them after providing an injury update on social media, showing him back in training.

He has missed out on the squads against Fulham and Man City due to injury but returned to the matchday squad against Leeds United as an unused substitute.

Lingard has not played in the Premier League since December, when he appeared in a 3-0 defeat against his former club Manchester United.

He made his only appearance this year as a second-half substitute against the same team in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg.

However, it seems that Lingard could be nearing a return to action ahead of the weekend’s Premier League clash against the Hammers, as Forest travel to the London Stadium for Saturday’s 3pm kick-off. The Hammers are currently in the relegation zone.
