Javier Hernandez to return to West Ham squad for Chelsea clash

SHARE



Javier Hernandez looks likely to return to West Ham’s squad for Saturday’s home London derby against Chelsea.

Hernandez has been out of action for almost five weeks after suffering a hamstring injury but has been in full training for a week and should be available.

However, manager David Moyes may persist with Michail Antonio up front and with Hernandez on the bench. Moyes will make a late decision on Winston Reid, who has a hamstring problem.

The Hammers are still yet to win under Moyes after losing away at Watford, Everton and Manchester City and earning a respectable point at home to Leicester. 

West Ham were unfortunate to come away from City empty-handed and now face the unenviable task of successive matches against Chelsea and Arsenal.

Hernandez’s return will be a boost for West Ham, who have scored just 13 goals in 15 games so far this season.
