West Ham will assess Marko Arnautovic on Monday after he hobbled off the pitch in the final moments of the 4-0 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday. The Hammers finished the match with 10 men after Arnautovic left the field with Manuel Pellegrini unable to call upon a replacement having used all three substitutes. The Austria international had attempted to continue for a few minutes before eventually heading off the pitch and down the tunnel in the 89th minute. Meanwhile, Andy Carroll returned to the matchday squad on Saturday for the first time this season but failed to make it off the bench. Carroll has not featured in a Premier League match since the 2-0 victory over Leicester at the King Power Stadium in May, but his return is a boost for Pellegrini ahead of a crucial run of fixtures in the build-up to Christmas. Jack Wilshere was left out altogether on Saturday, but is pushing for a place in the squad to face Newcastle at St. James' Park. The former … [Read more...] about West Ham’s injuries and suspensions ahead of Newcastle clash

West Ham vs Manchester CityPremier League 2018/19 Manuel Pellegrini takes on his former club on Saturday as West Ham host champions Manchester City in east London. Pellegrini led Man City to the 2013-14 Premier League title, but made way for Pep Guardiola two years later - and his former side have gone from strength to strength since then. The Chilean has had a disjointed start at West Ham with the club sitting 13th, though Pellegrini's side will fancy their chances of causing City problems having already beaten Manchester United and drawn against Chelsea at the London Stadium this season.

Manuel Pellegrini is nursing a long injury list ahead of West Ham's trip to Leicester City on Saturday (5.30pm.) Pellegrini lost summer signing Andriy Yarmolenko to a torn Achilles tendon in last weekend's defeat to Tottenham, with the Ukranian the latest injured Hammer. Midfielder Pedro Obiang is carrying a calf problem, so will not be available for the City clash while the likes of Carlos Sanchez and Winston Reid also still sidelined, Andy Carroll and Jack Wilshere are still recovering from injury while Manuel Lanzini continues his rehabilitation from a knee injury. And the Chilean hopes opportunities handed to their replacements will be grasped. "Of course it is difficult when you have so many important players out and you know they are long injuries, but I always say the same thing, you have a squad, not just a team," he said. "Now is the moment for another player who maybe didn't have a chance before to take that chance now. "I hope that we will continue being a competitive team." … [Read more...] about Pellegrini reveals extent of West Ham injury crisis
Manuel Lanzini scored twice as West Ham claimed a 3-1 win in what could be an ignominious end to Sam Allardyce's reign as Everton boss. Goals from Lanzini either side of a Marko Arnautovic effort which Jordan Pickford should have done better with earned the Hammers victory in what could also be David Moyes' last game as boss. Allardyce, the former England and West Ham manager, was booed by visiting fans prior to Oumar Niasse making it 2-1 at the London Stadium, but there was to be no comeback. Moyes' stock has risen in guiding West Ham to safety and, like with Allardyce, there are rumours over his future.

Sam Allardyce has made two changes to the Everton starting lineup as the Blues prepare for their final match of the 2017/18 campaign against West Ham. Ramiro Funes Mori is handed his first start since his recovery from a serious knee injury as Everton look to switch to a back three for the visit to the London Stadium. Phil Jagielka and Michael Keane keep their places to make up the central trio, with Leighton Baines and Seamus Coleman to be used as wing backs for the match. Everton's central midfield remains unchanged from last time out against Southampton, with goalscorer Tom Davies handed another chance to impress in the absence of Wayne Rooney. The Blues look to be playing two up front, with both Cenk Tosun and Oumar Niasse starting. Theo Walcott is only fit enough for a place on the bench, and joins the returning Mason Holgate among the substitutes. Davy Klaassen is also on the bench, but there is no space in the squad for Nikola Vlasic.
