Arnie/Antonio update for Huddersfield

Antonio likely to be missing again

Antonio likely to be missing again

Mark Aranautovic will be back for tomorrow (Sat) Premier Leaue clash with Huddersfield at the Kirklees Stadium but Michail Antonio is unlikely to appear despite recovering from injury and returning to training.

Arnie has been suffering from a tight hamstring issue but is all set – given no further problems in training – to make the team for the match.

The game against Town is the start of a series of clashes which could easily define the outcome to the Irons season and it’s a boost for manager David Moyes and the fans that the Austria international will be back in action.

However, Antonio looks set to require further training ground improvement in fitness before being involved in the upcoming games. His last appearance was against Newcastle on December 23.

Winston Reid is also a major doubt  which means that Declan Rice and Angelo Ogbonna are set to continue at the heart of defence whilst upfront the manager will make the decision on whether Chicharito or Andre Ayew takes up an attacking role.

  1. Would Carroll not be first choice striker?

    • Not anymore ? Someone put their finger through him in the taj mahaal curry house last week
      That’s why he’s gone missing !😂😂

  2. Rather have Martinez than Ayew or Hernandez . He can only be an improvement !!
