Arnautovic could return for Liverpool test

Marko Arnautovic could be set to return for West Ham's next fixture - ending fears that the foot injury he sustained at Wolves was something more serious.

The Austrian forward was substituted 20 minutes from the end of West Ham's 3-0 defeat on Tuesday night amidst fears that he could be sidelined for some considerable time.

However a medical assessment on Wednesday has confirmed that the damage caused was little more than superficial - just a bruise - despite a hobbling Arnautovic leaving Molineux on crutches and in a protective boot.

Should the 29-year-old fail to recover in time for the Liverpool test, he will be back in time to face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on 9 February.
