Chicharito returned to training for the first time today since Mexico exited the World Cup.
But given his lack of time with the squad it remains to be seen whether the manager will give him minutes against Ipswich Town at Portman Road tomorrow (Sat).
One thing is certain however, Manuel Pellegrini is a huge admirer of the Hammers striker whom he believes will become a key player this season.
Meanwhile Aaron Cresswell has been back on the Rush Green Training pitch all week and will hopefully see action at his former club.
The manager has had a good look at most of the squad now but Toni Martinez will be involved at Town as the manager wants to run the rule over him again.
The game is the last before the squad fly out to Austria for the two final games of pre-season – the Betway Vup against 1. FSV Mainz. 05 and Angers SCO.
