Midfielder set for a Spurs return


obigPedro Obiang is working hard to make it into next week’s squad for the match at White Hart Lane.

The midfielder has suffered a quadriceps injury in training prior to the Hammers’ 2-0 Barclays Premier League at Watford but claims he is  on the mend.

With  Dimitri Payet and Enner Valencia injured against Everton, the 23-year-old is determined to boost boss  Slaven Bilic’s options.

He told “I’m feeling better now and I’m training hard to hopefully join the rest of the guys, but these things happen.

I just want to get back as soon as I can to help the team. We’re focusing on the areas where I’m feeling a bit of discomfort so that next week I can start training again with the rest of the team.

I’m very much looking forward to the next match against Tottenham as I am with every game, as it represents a new opportunity to play.

“I really hope that I have recovered by then and I can be part of the squad, so that I can make the fans happier.”

    He has a great attitude & i’d like to see him given a chance.. but we have such strong competition for those 2 defensive midfield places

  • bubs says:

    Will be great to see him and Song back to give us a bit of bite and we may need to change are way of playing with Payet missing,
    He has so much to offer and Noble is taking his position at a cost to our midfield,with him in the side Kouyate would have more freedom and he is better than Mark
