West Ham manager Slaven Bilic is in line for a major boost as attacking duo Dimitri Payet and Sofiane Feghouli are set to return from injury, according to a report.
Star player Payet featured in the last half an hour of his country’s disappointing 0-0 draw against Belarus on Tuesday night during their 2018 World Cup qualifier.
The London Evening Standard claimed that Payet could be fit enough to feature against the Hornets following his appearance for France, while Algeria international Feghouli looks to complete his recovery from injury.
The former Valencia wide man, has yet to feature for the Hammers in the league after suffering a hamstring injury.
The East London are side are looking for their crocked attacking stars to make a return after scoring just four goals in their last five games in all competitions.
They’ve also been knocked out of the Europa League by Romanian minnows Astra Giurgiu and suffered domestic defeats to Chelsea and Manchester City.
Former Arsenal midfielder Havard Nordtveit and New Zealand stopper Winston Reid are also expected to return from injury, but target man Andy Carroll is out for another week at least.
