Hammers hopeful on Arnautovic injury

West Ham are hopeful that Marko Arnautovic will be okay for the trip to Newcastle at the weekend after appearing to sustain an injury in the last few minutes of the game against Manchester City.

The Hammers finished the match with 10 men after Arnautovic left the field with Manuel Pellegrini unable to call upon a replacement having used all three substitutes.

The Austria international had attempted to continue for a few minutes before eventually heading off the pitch and down the tunnel in the 89th minute.

There are no specific details of the injury which has been simply referred to as a knock but we were told by text today from a regular senior source that the medics are not overly concerned and hopes were high that the striker would make the trip.

However, Andy Carroll would be able to provide an element of cover were Arnautovic not to make it as the big fella is now fully fit and would be desperately keen to make an appearance in the game against his former club.

  1. Sorry different topic but I thought we were allowed to change the colour of the pitch surround? And if we are how long does it take it’s been ages now.

  2. Just watched the highlights of the u23’s looks like they close down like Liverpool or City, why can’t our first team do that, time for some of them to get a shot in midfield and up top, Holland and Silva at that level are definitely well above average look like first team opportunities. Sadly the left back gave away a pen but what can we do 🙂
