Mark Hughes has confirmed that he is expecting to have a full squad of players at his disposal for Sunday’s Premier League trip to Arsenal.

Previous absentees Charlie Austin and Maya Yoshida rejoined the matchday squad at West Ham last weekend and the boss is anticipating that only a late call will need to be made on Mario Lemina who has been unwell this week.

“For the most part we’re okay,” he said. “Sam McQueen has got a groin strain unfortunately so he won't be involved. Mario Lemina has been ill this week but trained with us today. Everyone is fit and healthy and ready to go.

"It’s good from that point of view, I’ve got a lot of bodies to go with and that can only be a benefit to us.”
