West Ham winger Robert Snodgrass is expected to be fit for next weekend.

Snodgrass had to withdraw from the Scotland squad due to an ankle injury, prompting concerns over his fitness.

But he should be fit to take on Tottenham Hotspur next weekend, according to The London Evening Standard.

The injury

Snodgrass was set to face Israel in the UEFA Nations League. But an ankle injury ruled him out of the match, which ended in defeat for the Scots.

The 31-year-old has since returned to West Ham, where he has received treatment for his ankle knock.

But it is not as serious as initially feared and West Ham expect him to be ready before the game against Spurs.

Boost for Spurs clash

West Ham host Tottenham next Saturday in a London derby match at The London Stadium.


The Hammers will be hoping to get one up on their rivals and Snodgrass’ return from his ankle injury would be a boost.

Although he rarely starts, the Scotland international is a good impact substitute and his passion and commitment will be helpful in a derby match.

Snodgrass has revived his West Ham career, despite it looking all but over a year ago.

After falling out of favour under Slaven Bilic, Snodgrass was sent on loan to Aston Villa.

But his performances in the Championship, as well as his pre-season efforts, were enough to convince Manuel Pellegrini to give him another shot.

Snodgrass has taken the opportunity with both hands. And now he is a popular and settled member of the squad.
