CandH exclusive: Manu doubts


Exclusive by Hughie Southon

Manu Lanzini is doubtful for the game against Everton at the London Stadium on Sunday following his scary car smash yesterday (Thurs)

Whilst the Hammers walked away from the wreckage of the car – which flipped on the A12 – we have leaned that he has several bruises and is now only 50-50 to make the game.

Should that be the case then Said Benrahma looks certain to start with Pablo Fornals on the left side supporting Mikey Antonio.

The Argentine midfielder, 29, has confirmed he was uninjured with a thumbs-up to fans overnight despite the chauffeur-driven Mercedes people carrier he was in flipping and landing on its side.

And he said:  “Hello everyone. I wanted to say thank you to you all for the messages of love and support you sent me.

“They helped me a lot because it was a pretty big scare. Thank God everything turned out okay with what the accident was.”

Am insider told CandH however: “It’s a huge relief but he does have several bruises which could see him miss the game against Everton.”
