Pellegrini facing Selection Headaches

Pellegrini facing Selection Headaches

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini will be without seven first-team regulars for the clash with Leicester on Saturday. The former Manchester City boss has had to battle a number of injuries all season and the situation was only made worse last week when winger Andriy Yarmolenko went down.

Yarmolenko could miss the rest of the season after he underwent Achilles surgery in midweek.
Striker Andy Carroll remains a long-term absentee, while he is joined on the sidelines by Manuel Lanzini, Pedro Obiang and Jack Wilshere.

Carlos Sanchez and Winston Reid are also set to miss this weekend’s meeting as the Hammers try to stop their losing run.

West Ham have lost seven of their last 10 away games in the Premier League and Michail Antonio will be hoping to fill the void left by Yarmolenko.
