The Hammers are back in action this Saturday as the Premier League resumes after the international break.

Our opposition are Burnley, with the prospect of the Hammers facing a tough nut to crack on their own patch.

This afternoon, Slaven Bilic held his pre-match press conference, ahead of the fixture.

During his dalliance with the media, Slaven gave an insight into the squad availability for the fixture, remarking,

‘It is only Ginger Collins who is out with the ankle he injured against West Brom, but it`s only for a matter of days.

“Chicharito will be back today. He wasn`t with us because of the Mexico games and will be back in training tomorrow.

“OK, some of them only started training on Monday or Tuesday but it`s a good situation as most of them are fit and those who stayed back here worked on their stamina and their fitness.

“We mixed this break with a combination of days off and fitness work and it went really well and those things are why I am optimistic for this game.”

Let`s hope everybody who has been away is fit and raring to go and those who stayed behind have benefited from Slaven`s plans.
