West Ham United manager Avram Grant is hoping to receive a huge boost for the Boxing Day clash with Fulham, as three important players are expected to return to first team action.

Goalkeeper Robert Green, Valon Behrami and Victor Obinna all missed Saturday’s draw away at Blackburn but according to Talksport all three are expected to return to training this week.

Green was ruled out of the Ewood Park clash after having minor surgery on a hip problem, Obinna suffered a brusied leg in training in the build up to the match and Behrami injured his hip in the warm up against Rovers.

However all three are expected to make a return to training this week and give the Hammers a huge boost as they begin their battle to avoid the drop.

It will also be good news for Grant who is reportedly fighting to save his job at the bottom of the table club.
