West Ham United left-back Aaron Cresswell is expected to be fully fit for the trip to Everton on Saturday, according to Claret and Hugh.

The club source claimed on their website that despite picking up a calf and shin problem before the international break, he should be fine to feature at Goodison Park.

Claret and Hugh report that the 29-year-old will be ready to keep his place in the side alongside the likes of Declan Rice and Robert Snodgrass, who are also expected to be available for selection.

The only players that are set to miss the trip to Merseyside are Michail Antonio, Lukasz Fabianski, and Winston Reid.


It is great news for West Ham that a large selection of their players are set to be available after the international break. With Antonio and Fabianski already being confirmed as long absentees, the Hammers couldn’t have done with any more injuries going forward. Manuel Pellegrini will be delighted to have Cresswell still available to him, especially after the great impact, he has had in his side since returning to replace Arthur Masuaku. The 29-year-old has been phenomenal on the left-hand side and has scored twice on his return to the team. Cresswell has averaged 2.3 tackles per game as well as 1.5 clearances according to WhoScored and has slowly turned into a key figure for the Hammers since signing a new deal recently. It would come as no surprise should Pellegrini decide to stick with the same side that lost to Crystal Palace and that would mean Cresswell retaining his spot.
