Upson to See Specialist
The Daily Express say that West Ham will find out in the next 24 hours whether Matthew Upson will need to undergo surgery on his Achilles tendon. The Express say if surgery can be avoided and the problem managed, Upson is hoping to rejoin training as soon as possible.
Most of the other newspapers today are concentrating on the return of Hitzlsperger. Hitzlsperger rejects claims that he is West Ham's saviour but thinks the club can avoid relegation,
"Our target is to stay in the Premier League. This season has been up and down really but we have to try to stay in the league and remain positive.
"I'm really looking forward to the next few months and if I stay fit, which I will, then we have a good chance of staying up because this is a good group and we all fancy our chances.
"I'm optimistic about our chances of staying in the league and after the performance against Burnley, we have a chance of getting to the FA Cup final too."
