West Ham United have seemingly been handed a huge boost ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash against Manchester United.
Indeed, according to club insider ExWHUemployee, Marko Arnautovic returned to training earlier this week, and is now in line to turn out against the 20-time English champions.
Arnautovic limped out of West Ham’s 3-1 win over Everton earlier this month, and subsequently missed their goalless draw with Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.
West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini claimed that Arnautovic failed a late fitness test ahead of the Chelsea clash, but the Hammers still managed to pick up a goalless draw.
Next up for the London club is a home game against Man United on Saturday, and it seems that Arnautovic will be ready to return to the starting XI.
The news has been well received by the West Ham fans, with a number now feeling confident that their team will overcome a Red Devils side that were knocked out of the EFL Cup by Championship side Derby County on Tuesday night.
A selection of the Twitter reaction to the injury news can be seen below:
This man is a legend already, is passionate about the club, saved us from relegation last season, what more do you want, oh yeah, United are gone.
