Felipe Anderson had a change of position when West Ham beat Chelsea at the weekend and it went well but there is no guarantee he will remain there when they face Wolves this evening.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini is a big fan of the 26-year-old and likes his versatility which is why the Chilean had no qualms in playing Anderson as a ten despite including Pablo Fornals in the same starting eleven, who is a natural number ten.

The Brazilian midfielder played in the number ten role rather then his usual left wing berth against the Blues and was far more involved in the game than he had been in previous weeks as the Hammers stunned their London rivals 1-0.

Anderson is likely to start against Wolves on Wednesday night and it wouldn't be a surprise if he did line up in the number ten role again.

There is a doubt over Michail Antonio, who played 75 minutes against Chelsea and 45 against Spurs the week before having returned from a four-month injury lay-off.

"I think Pablo [Fornals] did very well, both full backs of Chelsea are attacking and we had Felipe fresher to go inside the box during the game.

"Felipe can play in all three positions behind the striker, as a winger left or right or behind the main frontman," Pellegrini told when asked what is Anderson's best position.
