Relief as West Ham man delivers injury boost after concern over striker


There is major relief this evening as a West Ham man delivers an injury boost after concern over striker Gianluca Scamacca.

West Ham fans have been endured a terrible Premier League season so far.

And David Moyes is a man under pressure.

Many saw the World Cup break as a good time to regroup, rest and refresh ahead of the restart.

With West Ham just one point off the bottom three, the Hammers simply have to hit the ground running when the action gets back underway in just over one week.

So fans have been understandably hugely concerned after a quadruple injury blow when West Ham took on Fulham in a mid-season friendly on Saturday.

Aaron Cresswell (hamstring), Maxwel Cornet (calf, niggles) and Michail Antonio (thigh) all missed the 1-1 draw.

And there looked to have been a major blow when £35m Italian forward Gianluca Scamacca went off with an ankle injury after just 13 minutes at Craven Cottage.

It never rains but pours it seems for West Ham, who will be without Kurt Zouma until at least mid-January according to reports.

There seems to be some very welcome good news coming out of the club this evening, though.

It is big relief as a West Ham man delivers an injury boost after concern over striker Scamacca.

Hammers assistant boss Billy McKinlay was doing the post match press duties again as Moyes continues to take a break from fronting the media.

And he has revealed that Scamacca was withdrawn as a precaution and suggested there are no serious concerns (whufc.com).

“Yea he just rolled his ankle a little bit so, it’s not a time to take any real risks,” McKinlay said on West Ham TV.

“And hopefully see how he goes over the next couple of days and hopefully it won’t be too bad and we’ll get him back in as quickly as we can.”

Fingers crossed it does not sound too serious for Scamacca.

Whether that means he will be fit to face Arsenal is another thing of course.

With nine days until that massive game at the Emirates Moyes will be sweating given Antonio also missed the game.
