Victor Moses has been ruled out of the premier league clash against Liverpool on Saturday by the West Ham coach, Slaven Bilic.
The Nigerian forward who featured for the Reds in the 2013/2014 season has been injured for the past months and recently returned to training with the team.
Bilic said it was unlikely for the 25-year-old to feature in the clash at Upton Park but suggested that he would be available for the FA Cup game against Wolves on January 9.
“Victor Moses and Winston Reid are back, it’s a good situation for us,” Bilic said.
“They are lacking fitness but they have started training with us.
“But for the Liverpool game, no, probably not. They only just started training with us so they will be more for the FA Cup game. That will be good recovery for them.”
Meanwhile, the Hammers boss tips Liverpool to overrun the league leaders, Gunners, for the title – despite Jurgen Klopp’s side trailing behind with nine points.
“Liverpool are contenders to win the league, like the other teams above them. If they have a good run, of course they can win it.”
