West Ham team news: Marko Arnautovic in contention to return against Crystal Palace

West Ham United will look to take the momentum they gained on Monday with them when they meet Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon.

The Hammers managed to take a point from Liverpool in their last fixture and appeared to get back to their best after a few miserable performances.

Manuel Pellegrini will, however, want to see his side turn those displays back into wins and a win against one of their London rivals could be the ideal opportunity.

And, according to the club’s official website, Marko Arnautovic may have handed The Hammers a great chance of doing so.


The Austria international, whose future for much of January had been speculated about, is fit and available for selection after managing to shake off a foot injury.

Aaron Cresswell is also available for the match after managing to make a successful return against Liverpool on Monday.

Samir Nasri remains out as does long-term absentees Winston Reid, Carlos Sanchez, Jack Wilshere and Andriy Yarmolenko.

The Verdict:

Arnautovic’s availability will be great news for West Ham and Pellegrini as they look to return to winning ways.

Valued at £31.5million by Transfermarkt, the 29-year-old has been crucial for The Hammers this season and has seven goals to his name in his 17 Premier League appearances.

West Ham will have been buoyed by the result with Liverpool on Monday and will look to use the momentum they gained on the night to try and overcome the challenge of Crystal Palace.
