West Ham have suffered another massive injury blow after it was reported that Danny Ings could be ruled out of action for several weeks.
It’s a massive blow to manager David Moyes who brought the former Villa striker in to overcome the injury to Gianluca Scamacca who himself is out for a period for which no time table has been offered.
Now we will have to wait for the new signing to display his goal scoring abilities with Mikey Antonio the only “recognised” striker available.
Ings made his debut off the bench but faces a short spell on the side lines after being caught by a late tackle during the game’s dying stages.
The Guardian – uin breaking the news – suggest he could to miss league games away to Newcastle on 4 February and at home to Chelsea on 11 February. There is a chance that he could be back for the trip to Tottenham on 19 February, though the home game against Nottingham Forest a week later could be more realistic.
The former Southampton striker has twice sustained long-term knee ligament injuries buit this injury is not linked to those.
