Anderson and Antonio injury updates

Felipe Anderson looks set to recover from a small back injury for the game against Everton at the London Stadium this weekend but there remain doubts surrounding Michail Antonio.

The Brazilian took a knock in the second half last Friday evening at Sheffield United but is reported to have been in full training this week and set to play.

However, Antonio has been training alone this week after suffering a setback on his hamstring injury and remains at no better than even money to make the game against Everton.

We were told this morning by a well placed insider on the ‘phone: “We are hopeful but it can’t be put any stronger than that at this stage.”

He was expected back at the latest for this weekend but will be monitored closely over the next few days with fingers firmly crossed that he will be able to play some part.

He had initially  developed liquid on the injury but remains on the move in training but is avoiding contact and currently is not involved with the first team squad.

It’s a blow for David Moyes who will definitely be without goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski .

  1. What sort of liquid are we talking about here? He has developed liquid on his injury? What kind? Are we talking about internal bleeding?

  2. There has to be a question mark over our medical staff surely?

  3. Antonio’s positive impact on the team disguises his lack of availability. Someone needs to either sort this situation or we should cut our losses. Sorry for the player, but if you do actually want the team to move forwards, you have to make hard decisions

    • spot on robert. we need to get rid of antonio in the summer and use him as a super sub impact player for the rest of the season. he’s far too injury prone like a few others : reid, wilshire, yarmalenko etc.

  4. I think the liquid is cellular fluid which develops around muscle tears i.e Antonio’s hamstring injury. Unfortunately, most footballers are required to play before most injury’s completely clear up.
    I had something similar when I used to play regular football for my works team, a few years ago.
