West Ham are optimistic that Angelo Ogbonna will be fit to return for the game against Chelsea next Wednesday evening but there remain doubts over Sebastian Haller.
The news surrounding the striker is that he is fighting off a pulled groin and is not expected to be ready until the game against Burnley.
Ogbonna is now fully fit physically and the manager is likely to use him from the start against the Blues as he bids to avert another damaging defeat.
Fabian Balbuena was used on Tuesday against Spurs but a fit Ogbonna would immediately replace the Paraguayan.
Meanwhile, Arthur Masuaku is also reported to be suffering from his own groin injury and remains uncertain for the match next Wednesday.
That makes it difficult for the manager to find a replacement for the out of touch Felipe Anderson particularly as Nathan Holland too is carrying a problem and has only recently returned to training on grass.
