Marko Arnautovic and Pedro Obiang doubts for Huddersfield encounter

West Ham United will be looking to build upon their impressive 4-2 victory over Burnley at the weekend when they meet Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

However, it appears that Manuel Pellegrini and the Hammers could have an anxious wait on their hands.

According to Claret and Hugh, who are a reliable source of information when it comes to all things West Ham, both Pedro Obiang and Marko Arnautovic have slight concerns and have been told to miss a couple of training sessions.

There is a suggestion that the pair could be available for the clash against the Terriers, however, a decision will not be made until the gameday itself.

“They are better than even money to make it for the weekend but they will miss a couple of days training this week and no decision will be made until the day of the match,” a well-informed source told Claret and Hugh.

The Verdict:

Although it is believed the duo are expected to be available, the fact that a decision will not be made until the match will mean they will have an anxious wait on their hands.

Arnautovic is an important member of the team and carries the main attacking threat for West Ham this summer, however, he is known to have played through the pain barrier recently and is likely to do so again.

Obiang made his return to the side in the victory against Burnley, so the move to give him an extra rest period could just be a precautionary measure as they look to take three points from Huddersfield on Saturday.
