West Ham manager David Moyes has confirmed that Felipe Anderson is back in training following a back problem. The Brazilian has not featured since picking up the injury in the 1-0 defeat to Sheffield United last month.
Asked about how far along the 26-year-old is in his recovery, Moyes replied that the playmaker took part in two training sessions ahead of last week’s postponed match against Manchester City:
“Felipe Anderson has had a couple of days training.”
The winger, therefore, looks to have an outside chance of playing at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday, although a place on the bench is probably more likely.
Andriy Yarmolenko is “back on the grass” according to Moyes, but the game against City is likely to have come too early as he looks to recover from a thigh injury that has kept him out since December.
Jack Wilshere underwent a successful hernia operation earlier this month, but it remains to be seen whether he will be able to return to match action before the end of the season.
