Hammers to welcome back winger

8th April 2019, 09:39 by Bobbie Jackson

West Ham are set to welcome back Brazilian winger Felipe Anderson when they make the trip to Chelsea on Monday.

The 25-year-old has been a regular for the Hammers since joining from Lazio over the summer, netting eight times in 31 league appearances, but he hasn't featured since March 16.

An ankle issue has kept the Brazilian on the sidelines but Manuel Pellegrini is confident that he is ready to come back into the fold.

Samir Nasri and Ryan Fredericks have also recovered from injuries and will make up part of the matchday squad at Stamford Bridge.

Andy Carroll, Carlos Sanchez, Andriy Yarmolenko, Jack Wilshere and Winston Reid remain on the sidelines.
