It appears that the talk of Pablo Hernandez, Stuart Dallas, and Pierre-Michel Lasogga being back for the Queens Park Rangers match was a bit premature, as Christiansen said that all three would not be available for today’s match in London. Eunan O’Kane appears to be fit, and with Hernandez injured, might we see a return to Kalvin Phillips to the middle with Saiz pushed out left? I’m not for that lineup, personally, but it did work against Bristol City and they’re in third place, so maybe it’s not all bad.

On to the links.

West Ham United chairman David Sullivan took a shot at former Leeds player Robert Snodgrass, saying that his kids “begged him not to sign” the Scotland international from Hull City. Problem is that Snodgrass, even though he’s on-loan at Aston Villa, is still a West Ham player. And seriously, he was introduced by West Ham last year as a replacement for Dimitri Payet, but NOW Sullivan’s claiming he didn’t want him? Madness. [7500 to Holte]
