West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce has warned Winston Reid, who is returning after ankle surgery, that he will have to prove that he is deserving of a recall into a winning team.

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce has warned Winston Reid, who is returning after ankle surgery, that he will have to prove that he is deserving of a recall into a winning team.

Allardyce said in The Sun: "I've got so many lovely problems. Winston Reid is chomping at the bit on the bench but there's nothing you can do when the team is winning.

"Take Joe Cole, an excellent player who did not even make the squad for the Norwich game.

"It's great for me, disappointing for them, but you can't really argue with a team that's winning can you? And my two centre-halves are playing ever so well."
