West Ham United striker Michail Antonio could be set to return for our final two games of the season according to club insiders Claret and Hugh.

The 31-year-old has been out since early April with a hamstring injury that he sustained against Wolves.
David Moyes has worked wonders since taking over at the London Stadium. West Ham’s lack of squad depth seems to have finally caught up with us, however.
The Hammers have really missed Michy over the past few weeks and especially during our last two games.
West Ham need Antonio back, and fast.
Michail Antonio could return to action for West Ham in three weeks
Claret and Hugh claims that Michy is making satisfactory progress during his recovery from his recent hamstring injury.
He could return to action for the Hammers’ final two games of the season against West Bromwich Albion and Southampton (Claret and Hugh).
We play the Baggies on the 15th of May so that means the 31-year-old could still be three weeks away from returning.
Some may say that having him back to play some part this season will be a bonus. Others, meanwhile, we be gutted that Antonio will not be back involved sooner.
Especially considering the fact that the original prognosis was that his injury wasn’t serious at all.
Hopefully Michy returns to action firing on all cylinders and helps us win our remaining two games.
West Ham probably need to take a minimum of 12 or 13 points from our final five matches if we are to qualify for the Champions League.
And having Michy back will certainly help us do just that.
