The Hammers are going to be hard hit for the game against Chelsea with injuries and suspension.
Arthur Masuaku is unlikely to be in the frame for the game with fluid on the knee and his sending off against Newcastle means that Craig Dawson will be missing until May 1 when the team travel to Burnley.
Declan Rice is still believed to be three weeks away from a first team return and no return date has been put on Mikey Antonio.
Sadly, too, the Chelsea game will come too soon for Aaron Cresswell who – as reported earlier – has pulled a hamstring but could also be back for the visit to Turf Moor.
Ryan Fredericks – who made a late appearance against Newcastle and was given a run- out for the under 23s against Everton last night.
He supplied the cross for Mipo Odubeko’s first of two goals and is likely to be involved against the Blues given the increasing first team burdens.
