Pellegrini ponders Cressie and Little Pea

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.

  1. Definetly get rid of cresswell little pea maybe if we can get a top striker as Carroll must be sold asp when ever fit

  2. This will not be the first time we’ve had attractive, attacking football. Slav gave us that. Our problem has been at the back and Villa’s consolation goal revealed the weakness is still there. Cress has shown a lot of talent and if he’s not over-used getting forward as a winger he can add some experience at LB while we bed-in all the new recruits. We do hopefully now have a tighter midfield. I see him competing for his first team place with Masuaku but don’t see why we’d be in a rush to sell him on. I think his best years are ahead of him for club and country and it’d be good if that was with us.
