Hammers trio nearing return

Hammers trio nearing return

Aaron Cresswell, Havard Nordvelt and Jonathan Calleri have returned to training for West Ham ahead of the clash with Crystal Palace.

The Hammers have endured a terrible start to the season and injuries have played a big part in a poor run of results, which currently leaves them sitting 18th in the Premier League.

However, Slaven Bilic’s injury list appears to be clearing up with Cresswell, Nordvelt and Calleri now in contention for a place in the matchday squad on Saturday.

The trio have all returned to training this week after the international break and Bilic could be tempted to throw them straight in as he looks to improve the club’s fortunes.

Cresswell, who has been missing since suffering a knee injury in pre-season, arguably provides the biggest boost and could go straight in at left-back.

Nordvelt and Calleri both joined the club in the summer and have struggled to adjust so may find they still have to wait to get opportunities.
