West Ham Co_Chairman David Gold has taken to social media to share his frustration at the Hammers growing injury list.
Gold told his twitter followers: “This was our injury list before yesterday’s game it does not include Declan Rice or Cheikhou Kouyate, both could be back for the Palace game. This is not meant to be an excuse for our poor performance but simply a fact. 13 first team players unavailable for yesterday’s game. dg”
Obiang suffered a knee ligament tear and looks to be out for six weeks. Mark Noble, Declan Rice, Cheik Kouyate, Jose Fonte and Michail Antonio were all out injured yesterday but all have a chance to be fit for West Ham’s Premier League match against Crystal Palace on Tuesday night.
Marko Arnautovic should return in February while Manuel Lanzini will not return until March and Andy Carroll is earmarked for an April return if at all.
