West Ham midfielder Manuel Lanzini has hinted that his recovery from a hamstring injury he sustained last month is going well.
Lanzini is currently one of a long list of players at the London Stadium who are out due to injury; Andy Carroll was recently ruled out
The midfielder is still expected to be out until February, although, like teammate Arnautovic, Hammers fans haven't given up on the 24-year-old making a sooner than expected recovery.
The club-record signing, who joined West Ham in the summer from Stoke City, recently revealed that he may be back a week sooner than expected - potentially for the game at home to Watford on the 10th of February.
Marko Arnautovic already back in training at Rush Green. He told the Hammers website: “I feel good, the injury has improved a lot and I’m already outside starting to run and do my work. If it goes like that this week and next week, hopefully I’ll be back then."— Sam Inkersole (@Sam_InkersoleTM) January 31, 2018
The Austrian international, who has been nominated for the PFA Player of the Month for January,
“I’m trying everything to be back as quickly as possible because I want to help the team. I want to score some goals and win some games – that’s why I’m trying everything to be back as quickly as possible.”
