Dr Rajpal Brar says it’s doubtful that West Ham’s defenders Nayef Aguerd and Konstantinos Mavropanos will play against Manchester City.

According to the injury expert, they will need to practice well in the days before the game on May 19 in order to be eligible to play.



Given that Kalvin Phillips is out for the entire season due to injury, the Hammers might be without three players for David Moyes’ last match as the club’s manager.

Brar, a sports scientist and physical therapy specialist, exclusively spoke with West Ham Zone.

The circumstances of Aguerd’s injury and Mavropanos’ response to rehabilitation suggest that there’s a fair probability one is recovering faster than the other.

Obviously, those details are not known to us.

“At this point, I think it’s improbable that either will be on the last day.

“A late fitness test might be in order if either of them exhibits encouraging training results during the next 24 to 48 hours.”

Manchester City need to beat West Ham to finish ahead of Arsenal

While there is not a lot riding on this game for the Hammers, there is for City, who need the three points to win the league ahead of Arsenal.

Not having two central defenders in Aguerd and Mavropanos will undoubtedly be a tough one for Moyes and may hand the initiative to Pep Guardiola’s side to score goals at their will.

Kurt Zouma and Angelo Ogobba started in the 3-1 win over Luton Town on the weekend and may be in the eleven again for the Irons.
