According to a report from Claret and Hugh, West Ham could be handed a massive boost ahead of their clash with Manchester City on Sunday, with Felipe Anderson standing a chance of being declared fit for the game.
The Hammers are in real trouble at the moment. They are currently sitting in 18th spot in the Premier League table, one point adrift of safety, and they have been without the services of their pacy Brazilian winger since January 10th.
David Moyes’s men face an absolutely horrendous fixture list over the next six weeks or so.
So West Ham desperately need all of their best players fit and available for selection.
The Hammers face trips to Manchester City and Liverpool in their next two games, before they play host to a resurgent Southampton side. They then travel to Arsenal before a home game against Wolves. The horror run is finished off with a trip to Tottenham and a home game against Chelsea.
So as unlikely as it may seem, getting some kind of result away at City on Sunday would be a massive boost for Moyes and his players.
Key man set for return?
And Claret and Hugh claims that West Ham could be set to welcome Felipe Anderson back to the fray.
The thought of a front three of Michail Antonio, Felipe Anderson and Jarrod Bowen must be a really enticing one for Hammers fans, what with the pace and endeavour they will bring.
Whilst the 26-year-old former Lazio man has been far from his best this season, he was showing signs on improvement in the weeks leading up to his injury. And on his day he is quite frankly unplayable.
West Ham have little chance of beating City away on Sunday, but having Anderson available for selection will make that outcome slightly more likely.
