West Ham striker Marko Arnautovic is set to start against Newcastle despite limping off with a hip injury last weekend.
Arnautovic could not complete the 90 minutes as Manchester City ran out 4-0 winners at the London Stadium but the Austria international, who has scored five times in the Premier League this season, has been in training and will make the trip to the north-east on Saturday.
“Marko has worked the whole week without any problem,” said West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini. “We gave him an extra day to recover from the game on Saturday but he is OK.”
Pellegrini also revealed that Jack Wilshere could feature on Saturday following his latest injury. The former Arsenal midfielder has played only four times since his summer move from the Emirates Stadium and has been sidelined for 10 weeks following ankle surgery.
But Wilshere and ex-Magpie Andy Carroll are in Pellegrini’s plans for Saturday’s fixture.Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
