West Ham reportedly handed hammer injury blow ahead of Arsenal clash
West Ham reportedly suffered a real hammer injury damage ahead of our Premier League clash with Arsenal on Boxing Day.
The Hammers travel to the Emirates to take on Arsenal a week from tomorrow in a game that will be hugely important for both sides but for very different reasons.
The Hammers are currently embroiled in a relegation battle and sit 16th in the Premier League table, just a point above the relegation zone.
Meanwhile, the Gunners are flying high at the top of the tree and currently have a five-point lead over second-placed Manchester City.
It’s undoubtedly going to be a really tough night in north London for David Moyes’ side, but now it could be even harder than we first thought…
Hammer injury blow shared by West Ham
Gianluca Scamacca suffered an injury during the Hammers’ friendly with Fulham at Craven Cottage yesterday.
David Moyes took it off in the first half.
The initial prognosis was good, however, as Billy McKinlay pointed out that the Italian’s problem was not a serious one.
Still, there seemed to have been a slight twist when The Daily Mail claimed Scamacca was a “huge doubt” for next Monday’s Premier League clash with Arsenal.
With Michail Antonio already out injured, it would be a bitter pill for Moyes not to have the 23-year-old available.
The Scot will be absolutely desperate for a result against the Gunners but the Hammers’ chances of achieving that will be severely hampered if Scamacca is unavailable.
The Italian offers a great focus for our attacking play. And now Jarrod Bowen or Said Benrahma will probably have to operate through the middle against Arsenal.
A real hammer injury blow was dealt to West Ham at the worst possible time.
