West Ham United manager Manuel Pellegrini has this evening provided an update on the fitness of a trio of the club’s stars, ahead of his side’s meeting with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Brighton vs West Ham

The Hammers are set to travel to the Amex Stadium on Saturday afternoon, after the two sides got their respective campaigns off to hugely-contrasting starts last weekend.

Brighton put Watford to the sword in emphatic fashion at Vicarage Road, finding the back of the net 3 times without reply.

West Ham, on the other hand, were thumped 5-0 by a Raheem Sterling-inspired Manchester City in London.

As such, Pellegrini’s men will head into this weekend’s proceedings hoping for an immediate bounce-back performance, having been utterly outclassed in every department by the reigning English champions.

Speaking in a press conference this evening, Manuel Pellegrini provided an update on his squad, with the Chilean tactician having confirmed that key attackers Felipe Anderson and Sebastien Haller are both in doubt to feature at the Amex:

Captain Mark Noble, meanwhile, has been ruled out:
