West Ham United will have both Diafra Sakho and Winston Reid available for their London derby against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday (19 November), with the club's lengthy list of injury woes finally showing signs of relenting.
The Hammers have been without Sakho for the entire 2016-17 season so far due to a persistent back problem. As a result, Slaven Bilic's side have struggled to find goals, with Michail Antonio the club's only option resembling something close to a consistent threat.
Having returned to training before the international break, Sakho is now ready to make his return to the first team, while defender Reid is also back in contention, having suffered a grade one hamstring strain during the 2-0 defeat to Everton at Goodison Park.
Bilic told a press conference ahead of Saturday evening's clash at White Hart Lane: "Injury-wise we are getting better. From the team against Stoke, we are all fit, plus Winston Reid and Diafra Sakho."
Having seen record signing Andre Ayew return from a thigh injury in October, West Ham's injury list continues to shorten. Another long-term absentee, Andy Carroll, is also edging his way back to full-fitness, having not played in the Premier League this season due to a knee injury. Bilic is hopeful the striker will be back next week with the Hammers facing back-to-back games against Manchester United in the league and EFL Cup before the month is out.
Centre-half James Collins is also back in first-team training having pulled out of the Wales squad ahead of their World Cup qualifier with Serbia with a calf injury.
"A few others are going to be back next week, like Andy Carroll and Arthur Masuaku," Bilic continued. "Winston [Reid] didn't go to play for New Zealand because he got a small injury against Everton. James Collins didn't play for Wales but it was a minor as well and he is back in training."
