West Ham team news: Lucas Perez a doubt for Manuel Pellegrini’s side

West Ham United will be looking to make it a fourth win in a row on Saturday evening in the late fixture with Fulham at Craven Cottage.

The Hammers have started to find their form under Manuel Pellegrini this season and have started to move up the Premier League table, something their opponents have failed to do.

The Chilean will want to see his side take full advantage of the situation and build on their win against Crystal Palace last weekend.


However, according to a match preview by BBC Sport, injuries will once again impact his squad selection for the trip across the capital.

Lucas Perez is considered to be a doubt for the game against Fulham with a foot injury he picked up in the win against the Eagles last weekend, although Andy Carroll could be called upon.

Jack Wilshere has been ruled out with an ankle problem, whilst Marko Arnautovic continues to spend time on the sidelines with a hamstring issue.

The Verdict:

Perez being a doubt could be a huge blow for West Ham and Pellegrini as they travel across to west London.

The Spaniard has come into some form recently, having netted a brace against Cardiff City, and has looked lively at times.

However, with Javier Hernandez also currently appearing to be in great touch, the Mexico international will likely lead the line and look to get the three points for the Hammers on Saturday evening.
