David Moyes continues to search for his first victory as West Ham manager and faces a stern test in the coming weeks, with back-to-back matches against Chelsea and Arsenal.
The Hammers remain in the Premier League’s bottom three, with just ten points to their name after 15 matches, and face difficulties to turn things around, with the East London giants struggling for consistency this term.
However, Football.London reports a crucial boost for the Hammers with the news that Javier Hernandez has returned to training ahead of this weekend’s clash with Chelsea, having been unavailable since the international break.
The Mexican striker has scored four goals in 13 appearances this season, standing as the club’s second top-scorer, but has been unavailable to feature under Moyes’ tenure so far after suffering an injury on duty with his nation last month.
29-year-old Hernandez could return this weekend against Chelsea but may not be risked from the start, as the club will hope to have him in full fitness for their forthcoming games across the festive period.
