West Ham United

Arnie back for Newcastle visit

1st March 2019, 17:11 by James Mason

West Ham forward Marko Arnautovic is available for Saturday's clash against Newcastle United at the London Stadium.

Austria international Arnautovic missed the 1-0 defeat to Manchester City in midweek due to illness but he has managed to recover in time for the visit of in-form Newcastle.

Manuel Lanzini is also pushing for a start after coming off the bench in the last two games, whilst Robert Snodgrass, Mark Noble, Pablo Zabaleta and Grady Diangana could come back in.

Speaking about the options available to him, manager Manuel Pellegrini revealed he is striker heavy at the moment and there are currently four players competing for the lone spot up front.

He said at a press conference: "I think in this moment we have our four strikers without any injuries – Andy Carroll, Marko Arnuatovic, Javier Hernandez and Lucas Perez – and we are recovering midfielders also, with Manuel Lanzini and Samir Nasri.

"We also have Antonio and Felipe Anderson as wingers, so I think that we are prepared for the last part of the season with the squad with more options."
