THREE doubtful for Albion test, admits Bilic

Slaven Bilic is facing an anxious wait ahead of this weekend's clash with West Bromwich Albion.

The Hammers boss is waiting to hear whether three players who featured against Southampton last weekend - Cheikhou Kouyate, Aaron Cresswell and Andy Carroll - will be fit enough to face Tony Pulis' side at the Olympic Stadium.

"We have a few players who have not trained this week," Bilic, speaking to the media this morning said. "We will see on Friday. Kouyate, Carroll and Cresswell have not trained. Kouyate and Cresswell will train on Thursday and we will see on Friday about Andy.

ďAndy is in good form and has been great for us. He felt his groin and we didn't want to take a risk so we will make a decision on Friday on whether he will be available for Saturday.

"There is no point talking about a percentage and hopefully he will train on Friday and we will make a decision for Saturday."

"It is not something major. If it was bigger it would rule him out of the game. It is still open and is not a big injury. Basically it is very similar to the one he had against Middlesbrough and he played after that."
