According to reliable West Ham United inside source ExWHUemployee, striker Michail Antonio ‘should‘ be available for the Hammers as they prepare to take on Sheffield United at the London Stadium on Monday – prompting many supporters to react as this claim emerges.
Antonio had been sidelined with another knock, with the Englishman suffering his fair share of absences this season due to fitness issues, but this time around he could be back fairly quickly as per this update.
Would you start Antonio against Sheffield United?
No, rest him
This comes as manager David Moyes also confirmed that he has done a ‘little bit on the grass’ and West Ham are ‘trying’ to get back him back as soon as possible – with the Scotsman hopeful he will be ‘very close’ to contention (football.london).
Reacting to ExWHUemployee’s claim that he should be ready for the Blades, these Irons flocked to have their say with a wide range of opinions.
Some were joyous over the news, whilst others had reservations in regards to rushing him back – find all of their verdicts down below.
West Ham fans react to Antonio claim
“If he aint 100% id rather not play him at all”
“Antonio clearly has an issue which needs to be managed. Our squad means if he’s semi fit we will need to play him. At home to the team bottom of the league it should be simple to rest and protect him. Remember when Haller got us 3 points against SHU away?”
“rushing him back again”
“That be great news if he’s fit”
