Aaron Cresswell is likely to be available for West Ham United when they face Sheffield United on Saturday, according to Claret & Hugh.
The 29-year-old missed the Everton loss with a groin injury, which resulted in Arthur Masuaku playing the game at Goodison Park.
Judging by the report, he is a near certainty to play when the Hammers and Blades meet for the first time since 2014, as per 11v11.
Cresswell has started 4 Premier League games this season, as per WhoScored, scoring a free-kick against Manchester United and volley to secure a point against AFC Bournemouth.
He has also made an impact defensively, averaging 2.3 tackles, 1.3 interceptions, 1.5 clearances and 0.3 blocks per game, as well as winning 1 aerial duel.
Masuaku was given the opportunity to show he should be starting ahead of Cresswell once the Englishman is fit, as he was started against Everton, but he was beaten easily by Bernard for the opening goal of the 2-0 loss, as shown in the highlights video on the Sky Sports Football YouTube channel.
Having Cresswell back is a boost, as he had been performing to a high standard in the time between getting back into the team and picking up an injury against Crystal Palace.
This also comes at a good time for the Hammers, as they look to get back to winning ways, having failed to secure victory in their last four games in all competitions.
Can West Ham make the top six?
