Pellegrini confident of European push
West Ham United coach Manuel Pellegrini believes they can still qualify for Europe this season thanks to their strength in depth.
The Hammers travel to the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night to take on Manchester City.
Pellegrini's side are huge outsiders as the Chilean prepares to return to his old stomping ground where he won the Premier League title.
West Ham are looking to secure back-to-back wins in the league following their success over Fulham and the Chilean believes European football is still within their sights.
Playmaker Manuel Lanzini returned last week and Pellegrini admits his best players are returning in time for their push for Europe.
He told reporters: "If you look at our bench on Friday there were some important names. Pedro (Obiang), Samir Nasri, Manuel Lanzini, Marko Arnautovic, but not all of them are 100 per cent fit.
"But, if you get all of them in a good moment, we are in a good place. That is why we are working, that is why we are trying to achieve European football.
"We have been very unlucky with injuries over the season, not just the amount of injuries, but they have all been very very long. To be fighting for something, with seven or eight players out injured, is very good."
