Manuel Lanzini is a doubt for this weekend's Premier League clash with Manchester United, it has been confirmed.

The attacking midfielder has been in fine form so far this season having picked up Man of the Match awards for his performances against Brighton and Aston Villa.

But he could be set to miss this weekend's big Premier League game against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, according to manager Manuel Pellegrini.

There was however better news regarding centre half Winston Reid, who is yet to feature in the league this season having suffered a re-occurrence of an old injury.

West Ham's number two has not featured for the first team since playing in the 1-0 defeat against Newcastle United in China during July's Asia Trophy third-place off - but could be back in action next week.

"Manuel Lanzini also has a problem that we will review tomorrow before the game," confirmed Pellegrini during his pre-match press conference.

"Winston Reid is recovering from his injury. I hope he will start working with the squad next week. The first game he plays will probably will be with the Under 23s.

That could be next week, but it could be one week more."
