West Ham have one doubt beyond Winston Reid as they prepare for the match at Watford this afternoon (Sat).
Striker Chicharito reported with a sickness bug and his squad involvement will rely entirely on how he feels this morning.
Should he be ruled out, that could allow Swiss striker Albian Ajeti to make his second appearance on the bench after being an unused substitute at Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend.
However, we have been told this morning that the three players missing form last week’s squad – Sebastien Haller, Felipe Anderson and Mark Noble – are fit and ready for inclusion.
Noble’s involvement from the start looks doubtful given lack of match fitness and the alternative looks likely to be Jack Wilshere continuing alongside Declan Rice from the start today.
With a full squad to select from only the possible holding back of Noble may prevent the manager from naming what he will see as his preferred first team and leaves him with a strong bench.
However, that leaves him under some pressure to bring home points with Watford short of three regular first teamers.
