West Ham boss Slaven Bilic has handed a positive update to fans ahead of their crucial London derby against Arsenal.
The Hammers travel to North London on the back of four consecutive Premier League defeats and now sit just six points above the relegation zone.
However, Arsenal are also amidst their own poor run of form having won just three of their last ten matches across all competitions- with two of those victories coming against non-league sides in the FA Cup.
Having seen the Gunners hit five past West Ham at the London Stadium earlier this season, fans will be hoping for a more positive outcome tomorrow evening and there’s good news on the injury front.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Bilic revealed both Diafra Sakho and Michail Antonio could take part tomorrow.
“As I said before the Hull game, we thought it was too early for Antonio but we will see today.”
“He (Antonio) will definitely be involved tomorrow but we aren’t sure if he will start yet.”
“He’s (Diafra Sakho) back. He can’t wait to get playing again.”
“It was a serious injury and he looks really good. He’s lacking match practice and he may be on the bench tomorrow.”
Antonio has been unavailable with a hamstring injury, that ruled him out of England selection over the recent international break, whilst Sakho has not featured for the past four months following surgery to a longstanding back issue.
