Gloomy injury update

Tomas Soucek heads for a scan today after leaving the action at Anfield last night but he’s certain to miss the game against Southampton on Saturday.

The on-loan Czech midfielder is believed to be suffering from a groin or adductor injury, probably from overstretching, and manager David Moyes confirmed after the game he wasn’t taken off as a precaution and that he faced further medical checks today.

That will include a scan but already a Hammers insider has revealed that he could be out for up to a month.

It’s a real blow for Moyes with the player making a real impression since his arrival in the team on loan during the winter window.

Pablo Fornals scored on his Anfield entry for Soucek and looks set to get a start against Saints at the weekend.

Thankfully, Declan Rice left it until the post-December cut off date before picking up his fifth yellow card and thus has five more to collect before facing a suspension.

  1. A player who apparently not been injured all season comes here and almost straight away gets the whu curse,

  2. …th silver lining being that if this type of injury is caused by overstretching, we can say with a degree of certainty that Masuaku, Anderson and Haller will NEVER be victims

  3. We will really miss Tomas. He has been immense for our team. We can only wish, hope and pray for a speedy and strong recovery. God bless Tomas.

  4. Souchek was making a big difference. A great signing by Moyes it has to be said so big blow for Moyes yes but an even bigger blow for his team mates and a big blow for the fans.
