West Ham United have confirmed on their official website that midfield lynchpin Mark Noble will return to selection availability for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Hull City – but Slaven Bilic’s men will be without five first-team stars.
The Hammers travel to the KCOM Stadium to face a relegation-threatened host, with the visitors hoping a positive result can lead to a good end to the season.
Noble sat out the 3-2 defeat to Premier League champions Leicester City before the international break but looks set to play a part in the West Ham side that faces Hull.
There is every likelihood that the homegrown star will come straight into the Hammers side, especially as Pedro Obiang has been ruled out.
West Ham have confirmed that both Winston Reid and Michail Antonio are unavailable for the game against Hull due to hamstring and thigh knocks respectively.
The star duo’s absence will be a blow for the London club, who are also without long-term absentees Angelo Ogbonna and Diafra Sakho.
West Ham are currently 12th in the Premier League standings with 33 points.
