Manuel Lanzini was spotted sporting a new blonde haircut during a West Ham United training session today.

The Hammers play host to Chelsea on Saturday at the London Stadium in what is a hugely important game for both sides.

West Ham desperately need all three points in order to separate themselves from the bottom three, as do Chelsea, but for very different reasons.

David Moyes has a few selection headaches ahead of the game, with the likes of Maxwel Cornet and Kurt Zouma set to miss out through injury. Gianluca Scamacca and Thilo Kehrer are doubts ahead of the match as well.

Someone who has barely played this season who could be in for a surprise start is Manuel Lanzini. The 29-year-old looked sharp as a razor when he made a six-minute cameo appearance for the Hammers against Derby County in the FA Cup 10 days ago.

I actually wouldn’t mind seeing Manu play at least some part in the game against the Blues on Saturday…

Lanzini goes blonde

The Argentinian attacking midfielder was spotted sporting a new look during a training session today.

The West Ham players were being put through their paces at Rush Green. Look closely and you can see Manuel Lanzini sporting a new blonde trim, via the Hammers’ official Twitter account:

Hopefully Manu’s new blonde look inspires him to put in a match-winning display against Chelsea, if he is selected of course.

The 29-year-old scored the penalty that tied up the scores during our clash with the Blues at the London Stadium last season.

And who knows, Lanzini may well be a key player for us this time around as well, new blonde trim and all!

I reckon we could give Chelsea a right good game this weekend. COYI X
