West Ham defender Ryan Fredericks is in line to feature against Genk in the Europa League later today (Thursday), according to Football London.

The report suggests that he could play out of position in place of left-back Aaron Cresswell.

The 31-year-old has been a regular starter for David Moyes this season and may be rested for this one.

Good move

Fredericks has not been a regular for the last two seasons and there are a few reasons for that.

Vladimir Coufal’s arrival has seen Fredericks fall down in the pecking order at West Ham.

David Moyes has taken the Czech international from strength to strength to make him one of his first names on the team sheet.

Also, Fredericks’ injury record has been far from impressive and he’s proven to be unreliable for Moyes.

Whenever the Scot’s needed Fredericks of late, he’s either been unavailable or picked up an injury during the game.

Hopefully, he manages to play the full 90 minutes and fight his way back into the first team because he’s likely to leave the club soon otherwise.
