Team news: Lanzini & Antonio in squad for Swansea clash


Slaven Bilic has revealed that West Ham United will have both Manuel Lanzini and Michail Antonio available for Saturday’s Premier League contest with Swansea City.

The Hammers are eager to return to winning ways against the Swans this weekend and the team has received a major boost in two attacking superstars.

Lanzini has only been able to feature in one Premier League match so far this season for the Irons, coming off the bench in the contest with Newcastle last month.

Manuel Lanzini is back in the squad. He will be in the squad against Swansea.

And Bilic has confirmed that Lanzini, having returned to full training, will be in the matchday squad for the contest with Swansea.

Bilic said in his press-conference on Thursday: “Manuel Lanzini is back in the squad. He will be in the squad against Swansea.”

There was also good news when it came to Antonio, who was forced from the field during Saturday’s fixture against Tottenham.

The 27-year-old winger has recovered from the set-back and is also involved in Saturday’s squad, and could therefore play at the London Stadium.

On Antonio, Bilic added: “His injury wasn’t that bad and there was always a chance he would be available for the game with Swansea.


“He trained with us today and he will be in the squad for Saturday’s game.”

It appears to be good news all round for West Ham going into Saturday’s match with Swansea, with Bilic only naming Pedro Obiang as an absentee.

The Spaniard suffered a slight knock in the draw with West Brom two weeks ago and won’t take part in this weekend’s fixture.

The manager added: “There’s only basically Pedro Obiang, who still feels it a bit after the West Brom game – the rest are okay.”

West Ham will welcome Swansea for a 3pm kick-off on Saturday in their final match before the international break.
