Hammers trio set to face the Blues
West Ham trio Felipe Anderson, Samir Nasri and Ryan Fredericks should be fit for Monday's trip to Chelsea, Manuel Pellegrini has said.
The Hammers boss was without the three for last weekend's 2-0 defeat against Everton at the London Stadium because of an ankle injury, calf problem and a knock respectively.
However, all three have made good progress in training this week and, with the game not being played until Monday night, they have the full weekend to ensure they are able to feature at Stamford Bridge.
Pellegrini said on Friday: "Felipe Anderson is ok. He couldn't play the last game and also Samir Nasri has worked today with the squad.
"Ryan Fredericks was injured for the last game, too, and he couldn't play, but he's ok, too, so we have some news [on those three players]."
However, the Hammers could still be without another five players on Monday as Andy Carroll, Carlos Sanchez, Andriy Yarmolenko, Jack Wilshere and Winston Reid are all struggling, with a final decision to be made closer to the game.
