Javier Hernandez has started only one Premier League game this season and that came during his side’s 2-1 defeat against Bournemouth in August.

The Mexican international last featured for his side when he came on as a substitute against Wolverhampton Wanderers before the last international break, and was forced to stay at home as he was sick.

According to Marca Claro, the former Manchester United man has returned to full training session and is working at the same pace as the other teammates.

However, the 30-year-old has a new challenge ahead of him, even though he has recovered from his illness and is 100 percent fit. The striker has to now ‘convince’ his manager, Manuel Pellegrini that he can be a vital member of the Hammers’ squad.

In addition to this, Hernandez will also face competition because the former Manchester City manager has the services of Marko Arnautovic, Andriy Yarmolenko, Felipe Anderson and Lucas Perez in the attacking positions.

West Ham face Brighton & Hove Albion in the next clash and the frontman is expected to be eligible to return to the match day squad later this week.
