Slaven Bilic was forced into an 11th hour reshuffle of today’s team after Andy Carroll took a knock in training.
And we understand that Michail Antonio passed a late fitness test but is probably only around 70 per cent for today’s high profile match.
The late Carroll injury solved the selection dilemma facing the manager who was set to have to decide which of Arnautovic. Carroll himself, Chicharito and Antonio to leave on the bench.
Bilic failed to mention the injury in his pre-match interview after including the big striker on the bench along with Diafra Sakho along with Sam Byram, Declan Rice, Adrian, Arthur Masuaku, and Andre Ayew.
