Andre Ayew declared fit to face Leicester

English side West Ham United will be boosted by the presence of Andre Ayew as he is available for their home game with Leicester tonight (Friday).

Ayew has recovered from the illness which sidelined him at Watford last weekend and Marko Arnautovic is available after going off with a thumb injury.

The news comes as a boost for coach David Moyes who will be taking charge of his first home game for the Hammers since taking over.

He is delighted the Ghana star is available to help West Ham in their fight against relegation in the clash with Leicester City.

“Andre Ayew was out with illness,” Moyes said on Thursday when asked about the recovery of the talented Ayew.

"His wasn’t so bad but he has taken a couple of days to find his feet after.

"He’s back in amongst us too, which is good.”

But Javier Hernandez is still out with a hamstring problem, and although James Collins and Michail Antonio are back in training they are short of match fitness.

Leicester boss Claude Puel has no fresh injury worries but continues to be without Robert Huth.

The defender is yet to play this season as he continues to battle a knee injury while Matty James is also sidelined with an Achilles problem.

Puel suggested he is unlikely to rotate his squad following last weekend's defeat to Manchester City as he looks ahead to making changes during the Christmas period instead.
