Michail Antonio may get a one off chance to impress Slaven Bilic this weekend despite – as we explained here last night – him being seen as a long term prospect by the manager.
However, with Victor Moses ineligible to play against his parent club Chelsea this weekend, there’s a possibility that the £7 million player may play a part.
However, he may find himself again having to wait with Enner Valencia back in the frame having scored an excellent goal in the under 21s 4-0 win over Wolves this weekend.
And – following associate editor Sean Whetstone’s appraisal of the situation involving the centre back positions – Slav has another dilemma to solve.
For according to West London Sport this morning, Winston Reid has been ruled out of the game and this opens up the big question as to whether Angelo Ogbonna returns or whether James Collins – after such an impressive game last weekend will keep his place.
These are problems we haven’t had for a long time and as things stand tight now nobody can call the outcome with any certainty.
