Lanzini injury update

manuel-lanzini-west-ham-liverpool_3343611Fears that Manu Lanzini could miss the weekend match against Swansea were cleared up earlier this afternoon.

The Argentine midfield playmaker was subbed three minutes from the end – being replaced by Reece Oxford – amid fears that he had suffered a knee injury.

But a well-placed insider told ClaretandHugh: “We were all holding our breath and Manu was iced up in the dressing room afterwards but he is absolutely fine and will be ok for the next match. He took a knock on his knee but all is well.

“Finally, as we go into the climax of the season, we have a full squad and everybody is fit. Winston Reid felt no reaction from his recent injury problem.

“It’s very good news and we are particularly pleased about Manu because he was showing some of his best form at times during the game against Albion.

  1. Great news because he makes things happen and every week looks more settled in the English game,he inter links with Payet and Noble and Kouyate so well and pops up on the left and right,
    We need to get 3 points and as many goals as possible as GD might come into it at the death,

    • cannot see manure overhauling our 5 goal advantage. if the final home game turns into essentially a CL play-off, as looks likely it’ll be off the scale. what a season, whatever happens.

      i’m in cumbria & had many a scouser complimenting bilic’s game & the daves drive. good times.
