West Ham's Manuel Pellegrini faces juggling act to keep players happy

West Ham news Manuel Pellegrini

All eyes will be on new boys Alisson, Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keïta while Fabinho is one that fans have anxious about as far as his fitness is concerned after he was pictured driving out of Melwood with a club doctor.

However he expects to be without a number of players when his team host Manuel Pellegrini's Hammers due to a series of what Klopp described as "little niggles", or minor injuries. How could we say we have to beat everyone?

"We ask if it is a risk - and if it is a risk, do we take it?"

Signed as an outcast from Arsenal's squad, Lucas Perez has endured a hard time in the Premier League since his arrival two seasons ago and made just a handful of appearances in his maiden campaign, then returning to Deportivo last season. We want to be champions of England, but what about [Manchester] United and the other clubs? Should we go to a final again we should try to win it this time. I thought about it for the preseason, but now we have to be in this championship mood. That's it. We lost them in other games.

"We are still Rocky Balboa and not Ivan Drago, we are the ones who have to do more and fight more, that must be our attitude".

"Liverpool will give the title a go, they're the second best now, I think they've bought very well, very well", Merson told Sky Sports.

This has raised expectations for a title challenge in 2018/19, but after City's record-breaking 100-point tally last season the obstacles are vast.

"We need to be a competitive team on Sunday and after that next week".

"More clinical in the right moments, more aggressive in the right moments". I am always aiming as high as I can and if we can put West Ham in the Champions League why not?

West Ham fans have grown to be frustrated in recent years following false promises from the board, with boiling point reached in a defeat to Burnley earlier this year where some fans invaded the field to protest, but the owners have finally put their money where their mouth is.

"Step by step, we come closer".
