West Ham will have Pablo Fornals and Arthur Masuaku back for the game against Wolves with Andriy Yarmolenko also expected to be available for squad duty.
And there is growing confidence among the medics and backroom staff that Angelo Ogbonna could be available for the game against Leicester or certainly away at Newcastle.
Whilst the deadly dull international break comes around too soon for many of us – whenever that may be – the reality is that it could well help this time as it gives players the recovery time they need ahead of some very crucial games.
We understand Fornals is now feeling much easier with the groin injury that kept him out of the Arsenal game and Arthur – having been involved for 70 minutes for the under 23s on Friday – will be ready to go.
He’s unlikely to be launched into the starting X1 at Molinuex but looks pretty well certain to get half an hour or so with Fornals, having missed only two games starting the game, probably at the expense of Benrahma
