Arnautovic to return for Man Utd test

Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed that Marko Arnautovic is in line to make his return to the starting XI having missed the goalless draw with Chelsea last weekend.

The Austrian was ruled out of the derby draw with Chelsea having pulled up the weekend before during the 3-1 win at Everton.

However Pellegrini revealed that he expects Arnautovic to return to the fold for tomorrow's test against an under-performing Manchester side.

"Marko worked on Wednesday," he told the assembled media at Friday lunchtime's pre-match press conference. "He worked with the squad, so I think he is 100 per cent fit for tomorrow."

Pellegrini also revealed that Wednesday night's debut hero Grady Diangana, who scored a brace against Macclesfield in West Ham's 8-0 win, is also in line to be included in the 18-man match day squad.

"I don't think Grady's age is a problem," he added. "Players must take their chances. I try to analyse the performances, so I will see if he will be included tomorrow."
