Moyes mulling over 'keeper dilemma

Filed: Friday, 4th May 2018
By: Staff Writer

David Moyes says he is undecided which of his two first team goalkeepers to deploy against Leicester at the King Power stadium this weekend.

Adrian returned to the number one slot last weekend against Manchester City when fellow stopper Joe Hart was sidelined for the clash with his parent club, against whom he was not permitted to play.

However the manager - who has been less than convinced by either 'keeper since succeeding Slaven Bilic last November - admitted that he is unsure which of the two to use at Leicester in a game that could have huge consequences for the Hammers.

"Iíve got a decision to make on them both," he said during this morning's pre-match press conference. "Joe has been in and Adrian has been in, but unfortunately for Joe it was because it was his parent club last week, so Iíve got a decision to make."

One decision Moyes has already reached regards striker Andy Carroll, who was sent home from training on Monday morning following a row with the manager and later fined for his petulant outburst.

"Weíve fined him, he has apologised to both the players and myself, so weíve moved on," confirmed Moyes.

"Weíre quite happy that itís done and dusted now. Andy was in the squad last weekend, thatís why he was on the bench, and heíll be in the squad this weekend too - so itís certainly resolved as far as Iím concerned."

West Ham face Leicester at the King Power Stadium tomorrow (Saturday); the match kicks off at the once traditional time of 3pm.
