West Ham United to make late decision on James Collins’s fitness

West Ham United defender James Collins will be given every chance to prove his fitness for this afternoon’s Premier League game against Burnley.

The 34-year-old has not played since the team’s 4-1 loss to Liverpool on February 24.

A hamstring injury forced the defender to miss last weekend’s defeat to Swansea City, and it is unsure whether he will make it for the match against Burnley at the London Stadium.

According to the London Evening Standard, manager David Moyes will make a late decision on whether or not to include Collins in his squad.

The publication states that the former Aston Villa player was expected to return to training on Friday, which would give the coaching staff a better idea on where his fitness levels are at.

Meanwhile, fans have been debating on Twitter whether January signing Jordan Hugill should be given his first start this weekend.

The Hammers are in need of some points having lost three of their last four Premier League games.

Moyes’s side are three points above the relegation zone with nine matches left to play before the end of the season.
