West Ham loan hero Manuel Lanzini was in training on Wednesday - and brought his brother Tomas along to join in ahead of the club's game against Liverpool this weekend.

Lanzini, 22, signed for West Ham on a season-long loan deal from Al-Jazira over the summer, and he has taken the Premier League by storm so far.

The Argentine playmaker has hit four goals and one assist in 13 appearances for West Ham this term, and fans are desperate to see him sign a permanent deal with the club as soon as possible.

After an extended period out through injury, Lanzini played the second half against Southampton on Monday evening, and helped turn the game around, as West Ham rallied back from 1-0 down to claim a 2-1 win.

Now, Lanzini is in line to start against Liverpool at Upton Park this weekend, the club he scored his first West Ham goal against back in August.

He was gearing up for that game in training on Wednesday, and took to Instagram to show a surprise face in training with him - his brother, Tomas.

A fellow attacking midfielder who also came up through the ranks at River Plate, Tomas is currently playing in Chile with Nublense, and came in to join West Ham in training having visited his brother, whilst he can also keep fit before returning to South America.
