Lanzini back for Swansea

Manuel Lanzini is set to return for West Ham in the key clash with Swansea!

The Argentine has been out for the last three games, missing the win over Watford today, the loss to Brighton and the draw with Crystal Palace. 

But C&H can reveal that the midfield magician is set to return against the Swans on March 3.

David Sullivan revealed in an interview with the official website on Saturday that Lanzini was “ahead of schedule” in his recovery, and he is now just one game away from a return – the clash with Liverpool at Anfield next week.

The encounter with Swansea may prove vital, with the bottom half of the table looking very congested.

The Welsh side have 27 points from as many games and lie 15th, while the Hammers sit three points ahead in 12th.

Lanzini has scored three goals and provided six assists thus far this season and was in fine form prior to his injury against Bournemouth, scoring twice against Huddersfield and providing an assist in the 1-1 draw with Spurs.

  1. Lanzini’s return would be the icing on today’s cake. But why is this news being delivered by Mr Sullivan? Isn’t there a medical team who should release such information? Or how about Mr Moyes, the coach. Surely Mr Sullivan has more important strategic matters to be attending to; for starters, an intelligible player recruitment strategy for the Club.

    Explaining honestly why the Club didn’t have a strategy in place last summer as well as this January would be a beginning in restoring trust among a disenchanted fan base. All of us with Iron in the blood expect the Club’s leadership to take us into the summer transfer window with a transparent and intelligible strategy for player recruitment in place. One that is fit for purpose in developing a team capable of sustaining ‘top ten’ finishes.

  2. Take your moaning elsewhere. This post is about Lanzini returning to fitness.Who cares who delivers the info? As long as its factually correct it gives the fans another lift and something to look forward to.

    What we should be looking at now is how are we going to fit all our stars in to a winning formation? Should they all continue their current form we’re looking at Hernandez, Arnie, Antonio, Mario and what will be Lanzini occupying 5 of the 10 outfield positions. 4 defenders with 1 holding midfielder or a back 3 and 2 WB’s? At last, we have a nice problem on our hands. 🙂

  3. Ffs how can you read good news about Lanzini & then start moaning that someone else should have said it?

  4. It’ll end up Moyes fault. Ruffellite hates him.He spins everything on to the manager . He even had a pop when Moyes had a go at Artur over the gobbing incident. Sad.

  5. I hope he is back for the Swansea game, I won’t count any chickens just yet though but 3 points against them would be hugely welcome, they are starting to play some really good football.

  6. We played well today. i think when lanzini is back in the mix we will do just fine. amazing how quickly a good win shuts up the moaners.

  7. Just watched the David Sullivan interview ; I think he came across as honestly as he possibly could , explained some things that have happened and some things which have failed to happen . A lot of us have been critical ( my self included ) about how things are working out and our apparent failures . I certainly feel a lot happier today , especially after our extremely important win over Watford . It was also very warming to hear encouraging comments regards David Moyes and scouting / recruitment .
    Can’t see anything wrong with Sullivan giving a Lanzini update , it is his club after all .
    He needed to make this interview and well done to him . Hope continues his new found policy of keeping out of the limelight .
