Injuries could return for West Ham

Bielsa has said there are possibilities of Struijk, Rodrigo & Bamford being options for Sunday.

Would expect them to be back for Newcastle and obviously Llorente will also return for that game.

Side for West Ham looking like;

Meslier

Ayling Koch Hjelde Firpo

Forshaw

Raphinha Klich Dallas Harrison

James


If Bamford is fit enough, he replaces Harrison
Rodrigo or Struijk would replace Hjelde.

Would probably prefer to see Rodrigo replace Harrison and go up front but we know that won't happen.

If everyone can pray that we don't get any injuries in the next 9 days then we should have a strong side available that would be great to win.

I thought Hjelde did okay against them last week. Unless Struijk is fit, fit, then i'd be tempted to keep him in there.

Yeah that's what I think. I would prefer to play Hjelde than James upfront.

Would defo play Hjelde. Antonio didn't enjoy him I felt. Would save Bamford for Newcastle game. Came back last time and only lasted 20 mins.

I also thought Hjelde played well. I actually thought Bate did well too and was surprised he was subbed at half time.

On a separate note, Burnley v Leicester off due to Burnley's injuries + covid cases. They seem to have a lot of excuses up their sleeves when you throw in their pitch issues too. They're going to have a back log of fixtures. And I think that helps us out.

Personally I'd start hjelde.

Not sure he did as well as some people are saying, for me he didn't look nearly as comfortable on the ball as you would expect a bielsa player to be but I dont think he did enough to be dropped for a player who might not be quite match fit.

Hope bamford can pass a fitness test and start, however giving him minutes from the bench might be the better option

As much as we need Bamford back I'd take it slow and ensure he's ready and less likely to get injured again

The Newcastle Home match seems logical
