Dean Smith has confirmed Ahmed Elmohamady will miss Aston Villa’s huge match with West Ham United. Elmohamady suffered a hamstring injury in the 1-0 win over Arsenal on Tuesday and needed to be replaced. But Smith was confident that they would be able to stay up after somehow managing to get their premier league fate in their own hands after at one point of time relegation looking like a certainty.
Dean Smith said “Ahmed Elmohamady came off [against Arsenal] with a hamstring injury, so he won’t be fit for Sunday, We’re hopeful that Neil Taylor will be back with the squad. He’s due to train tomorrow and he’ll do a little bit of sprinting. Hopefully he’ll be back in the squad. We control our own destiny and that’s what we wanted to have going into the last game, It was looking unlikely and that we’d have to rely on others, but results went our way in the week and we’re above the dotted line at the moment. The most important thing is to be above that dotted line on Sunday and we know we have to win to guarantee that. We’ll be going all-out to win.”
