Injuries, suspensions and line-up vs West Ham

  • Chelsea and Liverpool march on as Burnley stutter in Premier league - Xinhua | English.news.cn

West Ham entered pre-season with a renewed sense of optimism following the arrival of Premier League winning manager Manuel Pellegrini and £93m worth of incoming transfers including £34m record signing Felipe Anderson from Lazio and Jack Wilshere on a free move.

The Austrian striker picked up a knee injury against Arsenal on August 25 and has been playing in pain ever since.

Pellegrini finally claimed his first league win as West Ham manager with an encouraging 3-1 defeat of Everton at Goodison Park.

"I know that here in London there are a lot of derbies, but we have our first of the season against Chelsea, and they are at the top of the table so that is more of a motivation to beat them", Pellegrini said. "He played very well at Everton and we hope he will be recovered for the next game".

"Tomorrow I have to change four, five players, but it's impossible in this moment of a season to change 11 players for a match".

"I want to speak with him and I want to speak to the doctor and then I will decide".


The confidence is evident in Rice. It is a contentious and sensitive issue, but one, it seems, he will not be rushed on.

5 out of the last 7 games between these two ended with more than 2.5 goals scored and both teams scored in 6 of the last 7.

And as such, Snodgrass says there is belief that West Ham can put rivals Chelsea to the sword.

West Ham need repeat performances all around the pitch this weekend.

Andriy Yarmolenko got off the mark on his first start for the Hammers, scoring twice in the opening period before Everton pulled a goal back on the stroke of half-time through Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Mateo Kovacic didn't travel for the game due to a dead leg that he sustained in the match against Cardiff, but he could return against West Ham on Sunday. This time, the spotlight will be on the youngster - let's see if it will be the teenager that does the shining.
