Manuel Pellegrini hopes that both Michail Antonio and Robert Snodgrass will be available to feature against Arsenal in West Ham's next Premier League outing.

West Ham's third London derby in four game is scheduled to take place at the London Olympic Stadium next Monday evening.

And according to the boss, both Antonio - who was rested for last night's trip to Wolves - and Snodgrass - who was forced to withdraw from the game midway through the second half with injury - could both be fit to play.

"It was a risk for Antonio to play this game," Pellegrini told the media following last night's 2-0 defeat at Molineux. "He was not able to play but I hope he will be recovered for Monday.

And with regards to the Snodgrass' situation, he added: "I think he'll be fine. We will see tomorrow, he had a big kick to his shin but hopefully he will be OK."

Antonio, who was one of West Ham's best players in the 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge on Saturday was badly missed as West ham succumbed to a seventh Premier League defeat of the season.

He was replaced by club record signing Sebastan Haller who once again struggled to have an impact and has now gone 12 games without scoring.
