Alan Pardew confirms four injured players now back training in advance of West Ham
At his pre-West Ham press conference, Alan Pardew has revealed that he has four first team players back on the training pitch, namely Fabricio Coloccini, Steven Taylor, Emmanuel Riviere and Cheick Tiote.
The United boss also confirmed that he expected Rolando Aarons to be back training next week.
“Coloccini, Tiote, Steven Taylor and Rivière are back on the training pitch. Rolando should be around for next week.
“We have had a terrible run of injuries but have kept the winning run going and that is testament to the squad.
Tough place to go;
“West Ham is a tough place to go. There will be a tremendous atmosphere. They’re on a great run and are in a tremendous position.”
“We expect Ryan Taylor to be back training in 3-4 weeks. It is not as bad as we first feared.”
After the win over QPR, Pardew said that he would be facing a number of selection dilemmas for West Ham and certainly if Cheick Tiote and the two centre-backs are fit enough for contention, we will all await with interest.
