West Ham United midfielder Jack Wilshere is not in the squad for the trip to Wolves on Wednesday evening, according to Claret and Hugh.
Claret and Hugh report that Winston Reid will also miss out against Wolves despite edging closer to his return after a number of appearances for the under-23s recently.
Not that it will surprise many people that West Ham will be without Wilshere, but his injury woes just don’t seem to be disappearing at the London Stadium. The 27-year-old has spent more time in the medical room than he has on the pitch this season, and that will surely be starting to frustrate fans, staff, and Pellegrini – who would surely want Wilshere to call upon in tricky games like the one against Wolves on Wednesday. This isn’t to say that Wilshere hasn’t returned to training, but the Hammers’ boss did make it clear that he should be back working after the Chelsea clash, maybe the trip to Wolves could have come too early, but a spot on the bench would have been something for him to work with at least. Wilshere has struggled for game time even when fully fit this season, and the two-month winless run recently would have been the perfect opportunity for him to get some minutes – something that could have passed after the recent win against Chelsea on Saturday.
