Robert Snodgrass blames his daily 280-mile commute to Birmingham and dining in service stations for returning to West Ham last summer out of shape.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini warned the Scot, who spent last season on loan at Aston Villa, he had to lose weight if he wanted a spot in his Hammers side.



Snodgrass's new commute to West Ham's Rush Green training ground is a mere five miles and he credits Pellegrini with whipping the squad into shape.



'You see who is at the top of the league now? Man City - the top players work hard.

Liverpool - the top players work hard,' Snodgrass said.

Get the players who are really good players all buying into what he is trying to do.

Pellegrini is running out of fit forwards and Sportsmail understands he will bring 21-year-old Xande Silva into Saturday's squad.The Portuguese forward was signed in the summer for £1million and has scored six goals in eight games for West Ham's Under 23s. Advertisement.
