Nathaniel Clyne ruled out until February

  Nathaniel Clyne ruled out until February It looks as though Nathaniel Clyne’s injury torment is set to continue for some more months. According to reliable Merseyside journalist Paul Joyce, the England international is set to be sidelined until February having undergone surgery on his recurring back issues. Twitter: Nathaniel Clyne has today undergone back surgery. Out for up to three months (@_pauljoyce) Clyne is yet to play this season and has been suffering with the back problem for some time now. It was thought that Clyne was nearing a return in recent weeks, but the news of his surgery presents yet another setback to the former Southampton man, who will have missed out on the majority of the 2017/18 campaign. Clyne will hope to regain fitness and form by the time the summer comes around, with him undoubtedly harbouring ambitions of featuring in the World Cup in Russia with Gareth Southgate’s England squad.

Football London noted that the England youth international has sustained a torn hamstring recently amid calls for him to receive a promotion to the first-team squad, and the injury is set to keep him out for three months.

Holland himself confirmed on Twitter that he has had an operation on the injury as he begins his road to recovery.

Gunn could make England debut against Brazil

  Gunn could make England debut against Brazil Norwich City goalkeeper Angus Gunn could make his England debut against Brazil, Gareth Southgate has confirmed. The England boss says that he has no hesitation in selecting him against Brazil on Tuesday. England host Brazil at Wembley on Tuesday night, with Gunn having been called up after an injury to Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland. Gunn could now be set for his senior England bow. He played for England’s under-21 side last Friday, keeping a clean sheet in a 2-0 win over Ukraine. The 21-year-old is on a season-long loan at Norwich from Premier League side Manchester City. He is, however, Norwich-born and has supported the club since his he was a child, with his dad a Norwich hall-of-famer – Bryan Gunn. His father played for Scotland at international level, but Angus’ commitments appear to be fully concentrated on England. As quoted by The Pink’Un, Southgate said this when asked about Gunn: “Angus has worked with the under-21s with us, he’s playing in the league. The other two – captain of the Under-20 World Cup winners (Cook) and Golden Boot winner in the Under-20s World Cup (Solanke). They’ve got good pedigree, and we won’t hesitate to put them on the pitch.

The 19-year-old joined West Ham from Everton back in January and rose to prominence in the U23 side and was taken on the first-team’s pre-season tour of Germany and Austria.

He made his debut for the Hammers coming on in their 3-0 win over Bolton in the Carabao Cup third round and with three goals in seven PL2 games, fans have been calling for David Moyes to feature him in the Premier League.

Declan Rice has illustrated that there is a pathway from the U23s into the first-team, but Holland, along with striker Toni Martinez, are yet to break into the squad.

James Morrison's return pushed back even further .
According to Express and Star, James Morrison will return from Achilles injury at Christmas after undergoing surgery. Morrison has missed a lot of this season with this Achilles injury and he is expected to miss more after seeing a specialist in Holland three weeks ago and now a specialist in Portugal during the international break. Head coach Tony Pulis was hoping to have the Scotsman back for the clash against Chelsea this week, but he will now have to wait until West Brom’s game vs Stoke on December 23rd to see Morrison return to first-team football. West Brom’s director of performance, Mark Gillett said this about Morrison’s injury and return date “We wanted to give it a couple of weeks to see if it would settle. Though he made some progress we thought the time was right to get him ready for the Christmas period.” “His Achilles has been grumbling and the international break provided us with the opportunity to address the issue. The procedure was done by a Dutch surgeon in Portugal last Thursday and we are pleased with the results. James will now be working hard to ensure he is back to full fitness as soon as possible.
