"We are just managing a hip and thigh issue with Andriy, but we fully expect him to be training next week and ready for Anfield," Collinge told West Ham's website.

"We want players to train hard in pre-season, but we also have to respect their injury histories to ensure they are fit and raring to go for the season.

"We have been creative, so thats involved work in the gym, working the pool and hes running in straight lines and doing mobility work at the training ground so we are getting his heart and lungs working effectively and he wont lose that conditioning element.

"He will be back at Rush Green over the weekend to ensure he is back with the group next week."

However Collinge confirmed that Felipe Aderson, Aaron Cresswell and Javier Hernandez are all likely to feature against the Ligue 1 side.

We were cautious over Felipe Anderson for the Mainz game and Aaron has been working hard this week back on the training pitch, so we are hopeful both," he confirmed.

"Chicharito could [also] play match minutes on Friday night.Its pretty much a clean bill of health out here in Austria - and long may that continue."
