Collins suffers hamstring setback

CollinsWest Ham co-chairman, David Gold took to Twitter after the final whistle to confirm it looks like a hamstring injury for James Collins. Another West Ham supporter also asked Gold about Michail Antonio who he thought picked up a knock in the victory but the West Ham confirmed that was not the case. “James Collins, it looks like a hamstring,” he tweeted. “Antonio ran himself into the ground but is OK.”

Collins is expected to be out for four to six weeks depending on the severity of the tear. Antonio later explained in an interview he had a dead leg and was sore during the match.

Angelo Ogbonna also struggled in the second half with a noticeable limp and is said to have played in pain for the second 45 minutes.

Slaven Bilic confirmed Winston Reid should be returning within the next week in his pre-match press conference on Monday morning.

  1. Bad news about Ginge,I hope Reid is ready to step in,but will be quite happy to see Oxford in that place Luluka has done all our defenders for 2 years maybe Oxford is the one to control him,
    Great news about Antonio an I am sure Ogbonna will play if he can play for 45 minutes with the knock he should be OK
    Hope Ginge is a short time if any time out
    How far is Tomo away from fitness. ?

  2. Must be another 2-3 weeks for Tomkins i’d say?
    Collins was immense last night, hopefully not seen the last of him this season.

    Saturday will be interesting – Lukaku is a huge threat, putting Kouyate on him in a 3 may be an answer. Needs Noble and Obiang to control the midfield like last night.
