Marko Arnautovic is back from injury and could be available against Burnley.

West Ham face Burnley today at Turf Moor, hoping to register their sixth win in seven games.

And they could be handed a major boost by the return of Arnautovic, who has missed a handful of games recently.

The Austrian posted a picture of himself and Michail Antonio travelling to Burnley on his Instagram, as reported by Football.London.

And reliable insider Twitter account ExWHUEmployee confirmed that the 29-year-old was available again.

Arnautovic has scored five goals for West Ham in an injury-plagued season, which makes him the joint-second top scorer at the club.

Level with Javier Hernandez, Arnautovic only trails Felipe Anderson in the scoring charts.

The powerful and skilful striker’s return is a major boost for the Hammers, who have missed his presence up front.

West Ham fans were understandably delighted by this news, although some called for him to be rested ahead of a home game against Brighton in the new year.

Here are some tweets from Hammers fans discussing Arnautovic’s imminent return.
