West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini expects Robert Snodgrass to be back for the London derby against Tottenham on Saturday, according to the Evening Standard.
The Scot withdrew from the Nations League game against Portugal and returned to England for treatment, as per the report.
Snodgrass didn’t play in Scotland’s loss to Israel, and the Hammers knew about his issue and were in communication with the national team.
West Ham were on a decent run before a 1-0 loss against Brighton & Hove Albion before the international break. The Hammers beat Manchester United at the London Stadium and even held Chelsea to a 0-0 draw.
Tottenham, for their part, will have a few players out with injuries. Jan Vertonghen is out till next month, as per the report, and a number of players could be last-minute call-ups as they fight to regain fitness.
Visiting the London Stadium will not be easy, especially after the international break but we have to win these games to keep the pressure on the league leaders.
Tottenham are a couple of points behind the pace-setting trio of Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City, and it will be important to see how we fare against our rivals on Saturday.
Spurs face PSV Eindhoven in a must-win Champions League encounter after the trip to the Hammers. Tottenham then take on Manchester City at home, which should be an incredible encounter.
