Arnautovic doubtful for Chelsea clash

Manuel Pellegrini says that Marko Arnautovic will be subject to a late fitness test before determining whether he is fit enough to face Chelsea this weekend.

The Austrian international was substituted an hour into last weekend's 3-1 win at Everton after feeling a twinge behind his knee. And according to Pellegrini, his situation will be monitored for the rest of the week before reaching a decision.

"Marko finished with a problem behind his knee," said Pellegrini, whilst addressing accredited media during this morning's press conference. "We will see if he is fit for Sunday. He played well against Everton and we hope he will recover."

Arnautovic, who scored West Ham's third and final goal at Everton shortly before being replaced is West Ham's leading goalscorer so far this season, with three to his name from his first five appearances.
