West Ham XI vs Nottingham Forest: Starting lineup, confirmed team news, injury latest for Premier League today
West Ham are again without Kurt Zouma and Maxwel Cornet for today’s Premier League meeting with Nottingham Forest.
Zouma has not featured since last month’s win over Everton, which in turn was his first game back since undergoing knee surgery during the World Cup break.
The Hammers have not kept a League clean sheet since but David Moyes will have to wait a little bit longer before throwing the Frenchman back into his starting XI.
The Scot will take a similarly cautious approach with Cornet, who has been sidelined since early October with a calf problem.
Lucas Paqueta is back after suffered a shoulder injury during the 1-1 draw with Chelsea earlier this month, and Moyes is able to hand a first Hammers start to Danny Ings, more than a month after his arrival from Aston Villa.
The England international has so far been limited to a string of substitute appearances following a minor knee injury, with Michail Antonio’s last League goal coming way back in October.
