West Ham boss Slaven Bilic may now be ready to throw every single top player at the second leg of the Europa Cup qualifier next week.
And that means there’s even an outside chance that Dimi Payet being on the bench despite onlybeing due to return to on Monday.
There was desperate disappointment at the result in Slovenia among the squad and backroom staff after the manager made it clear ahead of the first leg against Domzale that he was ready for a successful European campaign.
But after one of their worst performances in a long time, the manager is set to throw returning internationals Angelo Ogbonna, James Collins and even Payet, if required, into the action as the club look to turn around the 2-1 scoreline.
An insider told ClaretandHugh: “It was all bitterly disappointing and the mood is that we will throw everything at the second leg. We cannot fail on our first excursion in the London Stadium. That would be entirely uncceptabe.
“Ogbonna and Collins are almost certain to play and although Payet will ony have been back a couple of days he could be included and if things aren’t going right he could come off the bench.”
