West Ham United entertain Huddersfield at the London Stadium on Saturday looking to close the gap on seventh place.

That could be a potential Europa League spot for Manuel Pellegrini’s side depending on who wins the FA Cup.

West Ham go into the game off the back of a dismal 2-0 defeat at relegation threatened Cardiff last time out.

It was one of the Hammers’ worst performances of the season.

And it sparked discontent among supporters for the first time since the beginning of the season.

Discontent in the stands after Cardiff… and the dressing room?

There is also discontent in the West Ham dressing room.

That’s according to the Daily Mail which claimed this week Marko Arnautovic is unhappy with his lack of game time of late.

Javier Hernandez has been preferred to Arnautovic in recent weeks.

But there was no sign of the Austrian causing any issues in training if new pictures are anything to go by.

Arnautovic was pictured taking full part in the pre-Huddersfield session.

Pictures show happy Hammers all smiles in training

And it seemed to be a happy Hammers squad with returning Pablo Zabaleta all smiles, as was Declan Rice after his first England call-up.

Felipe Anderson and Angelo Ogbonna were pictured messing about while Robert Snodgrass, youngster Ben Johnson and Pellegrini himself looked in good spirits during the wind-swept session.

Pellegrini is expected to make three changes to the side for the visit of the Terriers, read full story here.
