The Hammers have been struck down by a number of injuries to important figures this season but are slowly returning the bulk of their squad to fitness,
Meanwhile, Winston Reid - who was substituted with a minor injury in the 2-2 draw with Sunderland last weekend – looks set to return, with the club’s medical staff confident he will be back for the clash with Crystal Palace on October 17th.
On-loan Barcelona midfielder Alex Song has yet to appear for the Hammers this season and he continues to work on his recovery with an eye on a comeback in the near future.
Finally, 22-year old defender Doneil Henry is working on a recovery from a groin injury but no time-frame for his re-introduction has yet been established.
West Ham's excellent start to the season is made all the more impressive by the players they've had missing and with a healthier squad set to be available over the next few weeks, Slaven Bilic will be confident of continuing the good form.
