West Ham United have been handed an injury boost ahead of their match against Watford this weekend, with Sebastien Haller, Felipe Anderson and Mark Noble all being declared fit.
The Hammers’ official Twitter account has marked this with a tweet of all three in training:
Smiles all round! They’re fit for the weekend! pic.twitter.com/GZIoIEmvo9

With the two most expensive signings in the club’s history being pictured, there aren’t many players who could steal the limelight from them, but Noble seems to have done it.
The West Ham veteran has missed both of the opening games of the season through injury, but is now ready to come back and make an impact.
Many will be hoping he can replicate last season’s performance at Vicarage Road, where he scored twice in the final game of the season to help the Hammers to a 4-1 victory, as per Transfermarkt.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the announcement, including posts from pleased West Ham fans, can be seen below:
Almost £90 mill on show there and it’s the boy from Canning Town we’ve missed the most imo #Noble
