Pellegrini gives positive injury update

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed he has no new injuries concerns after the international break confirming that Delcan Rice is fit to play after his virus while on duty with England.

Pellegrini told reporters at Rush Green this lunch time “Everyone returned without any problems, we have a complete squad fit apart from the players who were injured before. Declan Rice has worked without any problem.”

Aaron Cresswell (calf/shin) and Robert Snodgrass (knock) are both expected to be available for selection this weekend.

The known injuries referred to by Pellegrini are Lucasz Fabianksi, Michail Antonio and Winston Reid.

Lukasz Fabianski is recovering from an operation to his thigh with the manager confirming today he will not return until next year.

Michail Antonio is also recovering from a thigh operation with the manager saying in late September “The doctors are happy and now he needs time to recover and he has no pain, so everything is going in the right way.”

Winston Reid continues to recovery from a long term knee injury with the manager saying in October “The problem with Winston is that, two or three times before when he was ready to start, he had another muscle injury.”
