Hammers hold Arnautovic hope
West Ham are hoping forward Marko Arnautovic can shrug off a bruised foot injury to feature on Monday night against Liverpool.
The Austria international, who last month committed his immediate future to the Hammers, was on crutches after he suffered a foot injury in the 3-0 defeat at the hands of Wolves.
That injury was not as bad as first feared and now it's hoped the former Stoke City star will be fit enough to feature in the encounter with the Premier League frontrunners at the London Stadium.
Meanwhile, goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski and defender Aaron Cresswell may also be fit despite respective arm and hamstring problems, although the clash with the Reds comes too soon for Samir Nasri, with the Frenchman sidelined due to a calf injury.
