West Ham United

Pair close to Hammers comeback

22nd February 2019, 09:44 by Alex Jack

Manuel Pellegrini will be hoping Manuel Lanzini and Samir Nasri will return to the West Ham squad for the clash with Fulham on Friday.

Lanzini hopes to make his first appearance of the season after damaging knee ligaments training with Argentina just prior to the 2018 World Cup in Russia last summer.

Meanwhile, fellow midfielder Nasri has shaken off a calf injury and will be hoping to feature in the encounter with a Fulham side sitting in 19th place in the Premier League table.

Jack Wilshere, Fabian Balbuena, Andriy Yarmolenko, Winston Reid and Carlos Sanchez remain sidelined with long-term injuries.
