Slav weighs AC/Lanzini options

AndyCarrollWestHam_2821401Andy Carroll could be recalled to lead the line against Blackburn Rovers in Sunday’s FA Cup Tie as the boss weighs his options for the weekend.

Co chairman David Gold tweeted earlier today that the player was available for the game declaring:” Andy is fit and I expect him to play against Blackburn.”

The Irons are in increasingly good shape and Manu Lanzini look certain to join the squad this weekend as the club take the competition every more seriously.

We understand that the manager may be ready to rest Enner Valencia who looked particularly weary at Norwich whilst Michail Antonio may also be on the bench with Victor Moses starting.

Lanzini is now with the first team squad and according to insiders looking sharp and ready for action with one saying: “He’s certain to be involved at some point .”

We are told that Sakho is about a week to ten days away.

  1. Moses,Carroll,Lanzini
    Obiang. Kouyate or Noble
    Cresswell Ogbonna Oxford Bryham
    Adrien,Collins,Antonio,Valencia,Song,Noble or Kouyate
    Not a bad team should be to strong for Blackburn but they did for Fulham last night 3-0
    So no easy away day,
    Go you great 7k plus away fans cheer those super hammers home

  2. How long is Reid out for??

  3. BUBS, great choice in team selection, two things I like in particular, it is attack minded i.e. only two defensive players and I would like Kouyate to be one of them and secondly 4 attack minded players with Payet in the middle. Very positive – I think we can all see the mistakes from the last number of games – I just hope the management do too. I alo expect to see Oxford in the team. I was against signing Byran and nothing in the last few games have convinced me otherwise.

  4. First off Byram is cup tied, secondly he’s been fine in his couple of games

    Subs: hav’t got aclue with all our injuries maybe a few youngsters can make their mark.

  6. What I’d like to say is ” COME on boys lets start fast not like Norwich and Newcastle and have to chase our asses for a result..Your better than that” COYI
