West Ham team news

Here is all the latest West Ham team news before their clash with Sheffield United.

Jarrod Bowen could potentially provide West Ham with a huge injury boost by returning this weekend.

The forward picked up an ankle injury against Bristol City in the FA Cup and there were initial fears that he could face four weeks on the sidelines after suffering heavy swelling. However, further scans showed Bowen’s injury was not serious.

Lucas Paqueta limped off inside 15 minutes against Bristol City earlier this month with a calf injury.

West Ham fear that the Brazilian could be out for as long as two months, but Paqueta appeared to downplay those reports on social media. He posted: “That’s it folks lol every hour increases by a month, calm down.”

Finally, Michail Antonio has been out since November with a knee issue that he picked up while on international duty with Jamaica. The striker was closing in on a return to action this month before he suffered a setback during a training session.
