Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho watched Austria beat Russia 1-nil in Innsbruck on Wednesday sparking rumours of a move for Marko Arnautovic.
Following a desperately disappointing start to his West Ham career, the winger was kicked into life by David Moyes who promised to drop the £24 million summer signing "if you don’t run for the team." It proved to be a shrewd move as Arnautovic finally started to produce the type of performances which made him a cult hero at Stoke. Of his 10 league goals, six proved to be winning strikes and his achievements were recognised at the end of season awards when he walked away with the Players’ Player of the Year and the clubs Signing of the Season. "He is a little bit of a Zlatan (Ibrahimović) inasmuch as the players look to him. He's got a leadership role which he needs to develop as well, for the club and for the team," Moyes said. Arnautovic has previously worked alongside Mourinho during their time together at Inter Milan 9 years ago. May 31 - 5:41 AM

Marko Arnautovic scored a beautiful goal but the Hammers collapsed late as Arsenal rolled to a 4-1 win at the Emirates.

The first half of the match was eminently forgettable. Neither team produced much. The second half saw plenty of fireworks but, unfortunately for the Hammers, most of the action went Arsenal's way. Even Arnautovic's goal contained more than a hint of offsides in the build-up.

West Ham snapped their run of three defeats by thumping relegation rivals Southampton 3-0 at London Stadium.

David Moyes' side dominated the match and deservedly took all three points. The Hammers were without Manuel Lanzini and forced into a change after just nine minutes with Michail Antonio needing to come off, but the home side managed just fine against a poor Southampton. Joao Mario opened the scoring with his first goal for the club on 13 minutes, smashing home from the edge of the penalty area. Arnautovic was on target four minutes later as he followed up his saved headed effort by cooly tucking away the rebound. The Austrian then added his second with a volley in stoppage time, putting the Irons firmly in control at the half. The victory for West Ham takes them up to 14th, five points ahead of the Saints in 18th.

Marko Arnautovic is in contention to make the squad to face Watford on Saturday after returning to training this week.

Arnautovic was back in training this week after missing the last two matches with a hamstring injury he sustained during the 1-1 draw with Bournemouth on January 20th. While it is likely the Austria international will start from the bench if included, his return would be a much welcomed boost. Arnautovic had scored six goals and tallied three assists in the eight matches prior to picking up the injury. Meanwhile, Michail Antonio could be recalled to the starting XI after making a substitute cameo in the defeat at Brighton last weekend. Expect Javier Hernandez and Joao Mario to lead the attack, while Antonio could come in for Sam Byram on the right wing.

David Moyes has been dealt another blow following the news that Marko Arnautovic could miss the next four games due to injury.

The in-form attacker has been managing a niggling hamstring problem all month, and following his involvement against Bournemouth, tests confirm he suffered a setback which is likely to keep him out until mid-February. The update comes as a hammer blow for Moyes who also lost Andy Carroll until April after he underwent surgery on Monday morning to fix a hairline fracture of his foot. Meanwhile, media reports suggest Manuel Lanzini [hamstring] is expected to miss between 4-6 weeks after limping off on Saturday, although there has been no official update from the club. Javier Hernandez, heavily linked with a move to Newcastle, has had a transfer request rejected, and with a growing injury list, it seems highly unlikely that Diafra Sakho or Andre Ayew will move during the window unless the Moyes can add reinforcements first.

West Ham have been dealt another injury blow after Marko Arnautovic was ruled out for three weeks with a hamstring problem.

The news come as another untimely blow for the Hammers with Manuel Lanzini sidelined for at least a month and Andy Carroll already ruled out for three months. Arnautovic has been in fine form with six goals and three assists in his last eight appearances. The Austria international, who played through the injury against Bournemouth on Saturday, he will now miss the FA Cup clash at Wigan this weekend, as well as league matches against Crystal Palace, Brighton and Watford. Javier Hernandez and Andrew Ayew are positioned to see significant role increases for the duration of Arnautovic's absence, while the handful of injuries could result in the Hammers adding an attacker before the transfer window closes.

Marko Arnautovic had a big fantasy day, scoring once and assisting twice as West Ham United rolled over Huddersfield Town, 1-4.

West Ham's rise under David Moyes continued today as the Irons looked the stronger side from start to finish, though they did not run away with the result until the second half. They got on the board first 25 minutes in, when Mark Noble stripped a ball near the Terriers box and slotted home for his 50th goal of his career. Huddersfield managed to equalize to make things level after one half, but West Ham put the pedal to the metal right at the restart. Cheikhou Kouyate set up Arnautovic for his sixth goal of the campaign to regain the lead. The Austrian would then link up with Manuel Lanzini twice to run away with the match. Lanzini entered the day with just one tally on the season. Moyes' men have a good chance to keep the form up when they host Bournemouth next weekend.

Marko Arnautovic returned to training this week and will be fit to face Huddersfield Town at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday.

The Austria international has missed the last two matches due to a hamstring injury but has been given the green light to return ahead of the trip to Huddersfield. Arnautovic's return is made all the more timely with Michail Antonio still unavailable and West Ham facing a run of five matches against club in the bottom half of the table. From a fantasy perspective, the 28-year-old is someone to consider given his form under David Moyes. Arnautovic has scored five goals in his previous six appearances, including a brace in the 3-3 draw with Bournemouth on Boxing Day.
Jan 12 - 4:36 PM

West Ham's visit to Bournemouth ended with six goals being split equally in an entertaining game on Tuesday afternoon.

West Ham took an early lead through James Collins, who headed in a corner from Cresswell beyond Begovic. Josh King missed a good chance to equalise before Dan Gosling did just that after putting the ball away in a scramble. The Cherries then grabbed the lead when Aké touched home a shot from Cook but then the tide turned completely as Arnautovic struck twice for the Hammers. Bournemouth pulled a draw from the fire in injury time when Ake controversially headed home their third, splitting the spoils at the Vitality Stadium.

The David Moyes revolution continues at West Ham as they won 3-0 at the Bet365 Stadium on Saturday.

The match started an hour late due to a power outage at the stadium. It was the visitors who provided all the power once the match started with goals from Mark Noble, Marko Arnautovic, and Diafra Sakho. The Hammers have climbed up to 15th pending Sunday and Monday's results.

Marko Arnautovic scored an early goal and the defense was poised as West Ham United edged Chelsea, 1-0, for three massive points.

By far, the best day of the season for the Hammers. They got exactly what they needed, which was an early advantage, coming in the sixth minute, On the break, Arnautovic played a 1-2 with Manuel Lazini and the former slipped into the box to slot home. Chelsea dominated the stat sheet, but an organized defense combined with poor finishing from the Blues left Adrian virtually untested. With the momentum of the crowd, the Hammers were able to let the lone goal stand and grab the points. The win still leaves them on the wrong side of the relegation zone, but today's result certainly shed a positive light on the rest of their season.

Marko Arnautovic has been given the all clear ahead of Friday's match with Leicester City after suffering a wrist injury during last weekend's defeat at Watford.

Arnautovic was substituted in the second half of last weekend's match with Watford, but manager David Moyes has revealed the knock was not as serious as initially feared and the No.7 will be fit to face the Foxes. "It was badly swollen – it was a bit like a boxer’s hand when we saw it the next day," said Moyes. "But he’s fine. He has trained with a good plaster on it. He’s okay." Andre Ayew, who missed Moyes's first match due to illness, will also be available for Friday's match. With Chicharito and Michail Antonio both ruled out, Arnautovic and Ayew could make the starting XI. Andy Carroll, who started against Watford, is another option upfront, while Diafra Sakho could see minutes off the bench.

David Moyes is confident of having Marko Arnautovic available for Friday after tests confirm the winger did not break his thumb at Watford.

The Austria international, who was having one of his more influential games since signing for the Claret and Blues, was reluctantly replaced in the 74th minute after he was accidentally trodden on by defender Marvin Zeegelaar. Arnautovic was sent for an x-ray, but despite heavy swelling, the results were positive and there was no fracture. The new West Ham boss is also hopeful of having Andre Ayew back in the match-day squad after he missed out at Vicarage Road due to illness. Meanwhile, James Collins could feature for the first time since September having recovered from an ankle ligament injury. A decision on Michail Antonio will be made closer to kick-off as he struggles to overcome badly bruised ribs and a niggling hamstring complaint. Jose Fonte [foot] and Sam Byram [thigh] are definitely out while the game is expected to come too soon for Javier Hernandez.

Missed chances, poor defending and an injury to a key player summed up a forgettable debut for David Moyes as West Ham United fell to Watford, 0-2.

Moyes' return to the Premier League went wrong in every possible way. They gave up an early goal, putting themselves in a pressurized situation which they could not escape from. They had two chances to level the match just before halftime, but shots by Cheikhou Kouyate and Marko Arnautovic were stopped by the Watford keeper. The defense then allowed the Hornets an easy second goal just after the hour mark. Moments later, Arnautovic landed awkwardly, appearing to have injured his wrist, and immediately exited the game. With a quarter hour left, Manuel Lanzini nearly pulled one back, but his shot was cleared off the line. Moyes will go back to the drawing board as West Ham stay home this Friday to host Leicester.

West Ham secured their place in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup by defeating League One side Bolton 3-0 at the London Stadium on Tuesday.

Slaven Bilic made 10 changes to his side who drew 0-0 with West Brom at the weekend, handing Montenegro international Sead Haksabanovic his debut and Marko Arnautovic his first start since being sent off against Southampton in late August. Signed from Stoke City for £25m this summer, Arnautovic put in his best effort as a Hammer, providing a free-kick for Angelo Ogbonna's powerful header to opening the score and set up Diafra Sahka in the 31st minute. The second half saw the Hammers struggle to find chances until Arthur Masuaku blasted a thunderous strike into the top corner from 25 yards in stoppage time. The cup win also marked the return of captain Mark Noble, who missed the last two league matches with a hamstring injury, and winger Nathan Holland's first-team debut off the bench.
