West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini faced the media today, and provided an injury update on four key players.

The Hammers are in the middle of an abysmal run of form. They do have some of their key men out injured, however. None more so than their reliable stopper Lukasz Fabianski.

Manuel Lanzini, Jack Wilshere and Winston Reid are also out, but the latter appears to be closing in on a return to the first-team.

Pellegrini provided an update on all four players when speaking to the press today, as quoted by the club’s official website:

“The injuries are Lukasz Fabianski who continues his recovery along with Manu Lanzini. Winston Reid is working without problems. Jack Wilshere continues with some pain.”

West Ham travel to the south coast to take on Southampton on Saturday. And a defeat there could spell the end of Pellegrini’s reign in charge at the London Stadium.


The Chilean is under intense pressure from both the Hammers fans and the media.

He is in desperate need of a win against the Saints.

The way things have been going for West Ham recently, however, it would be no surprise to see them turned over at St Mary’s.

And if that is the case, Pellegrini will surely have reached a point of no return.
