Hammers wait on Nasri

29th March 2019, 11:20 by Jack Ogalbe

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini has revealed Samir Nasri could miss Saturday's visit of Everton due to a knock.

The Frenchman impressed off the bench in the dramatic 4-3 win over Huddersfield on March 16 but is struggling to shake off a calf injury and could be rested as a precaution.

Pellegrini has also revealed the club are still waiting on further news regarding Andy Carroll, with the assessments on the ankle injury, which could rule him out for the season, ongoing.

Jack Wilshere, Carlos Sanchez, Winston Reid and Andriy Yarmolenko, who scored twice in September's 3-1 win at Goodison Park, all remain long-term absentees.

Midfielder Manuel Lanzini is again expected to start against the Toffees, having been part of the Argentina squad during the international break.

The 26-year-old did not feature for the Albiceleste but Pellegrini feels he will have benefited from the experience having only recently returned from long-term injury.

He told reporters: "I know if Lanzini is nominated, he should go. I think it was good for him to go. I know all the players like to be involved in their national squad. After that, the coaches must decide if he plays."
