Michail Antonio suffered no serious injury when leaving the pitch during the second half of this afternoon’s match against Brentford.
The Hammers hero fell awkwardly and appeared to have injured his hip before leaving the action but Claretandhugh has learned that the player was removed solely as a precaution.
The buccaneering front man had provided one magnificent assist after shrugging 0ff the attentions of several defenders for Tomas Soucek’s winning goal.
He had again looked in outstanding form after arriving at the start of the second half as a sub for Sebastian Haller who himself was in good touch.
Such is Mikey’s injury history that there are always big worries when he appears to be injured but there is no problem on this occasion.
He came off 26 minutes before the end and was replaced by Conor Coventry and CandH received assurances following the game that it was a “precautionary move” and that the player is fine.
