Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed that he expects to be without THREE more players for this weekend's Premier League clash with Leicester City.

The Hammers boss revealed during his pre match press conference on Thursday that Samir Nasri, Javier Hernandez and Manuel Lanzini will all be absent from the squad that faces the Foxes in Stratford this weekend.

"This week Manuel Lanzini and Samir Nasri will not be available due to injury," he told the assembled media. "Also Javier Hernandez has a problem with his ear, which means he couldn't work these last two days."

However the news is slightly beteer regarding Jack Wilshere and Carlos Sanchez, both of whom could yet make a comeback before the season ends at Watford next month.

"Jack Wilshere has worked without problem and Carlos Sanchez has trained with the squad," added Pellegrini. "I hope that Jack Wilshere will play some games before the end of the season too."

The manager also confirmed that Marko Arnautovic, who was absent from the squad that lost at Manchester United last weekend is expected to return for the Leicester test.

"Marko has worked normally all week," he confirmed.

Lanzini, who recently made his comeback from a long spell on the sidelines was substituted an hour into West Ham's 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile former French international Nasri has been out of contention since injuring himself during a half time warm-up at Chelsea a fortnight ago.
