West Ham have been handed a positive injury update after reports suggested that Spanish playmaker Pablo Fornals should be fit and available to take on Arsenal over the weekend.
However, it is equally understood that Fornals is ‘mending well’ and will consequentially be able to take a spot in the matchday squad against Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal side.
The playmaker will be cautiously monitored and will likely undergo a late fitness test to assess his suitability to feature against the fellow London side.
In a further boost, news that Darren Randolph, Andriy Yarmolenko and Angelo Ogbonna are expected to return after the international break is also attached on into the report – offering David Moyes an injury boost on a plethora of fronts.
The news on all four men comes after separate expectations that Congolese left-back Arthur Masuaku is expected to be on the verge of a first-team return for West Ham.
Those statistics virtually speak for themselves; Fornals cannot be discounted as a robust creative outlet in David Moyes’ thinking, and so his return could ease the burden from the likes of Said Benrahma and Jesse Lingard.
