Manuel Lanzini stretched off

Hammer Manuel Lanzini was stretched off with a shoulder injury late in the Burnley v West Ham defeat at Turf Moor this afternoon.

Lanzini was carried off to some sympathetic applause from both sets of fans despite the Hammers being 3-0 down.

West Ham were forced to carry on with ten men with all three substitutions already made.

Lanzini was not in Pellegrini’s starting XI and came on as a 56th-minute substitute.

West Ham tweeted out “Lanzini needs treatment for a shoulder injury and he’s taking on oxygen. He is in some pain and is taken off on a stretcher”.

Although we have now have an international break before the Hammers face Spurs on 23rd November it would be surprising if Lanzini makes a quick return and is likely to be out for a few weeks.

Skipper Mark Noble was also a casualty earlier in the game limping off after just twenty minutes to be replaced with Yarmolenko.

Post match Manuel Pellegrini said  “Mark (Noble) twisted his ankle. We’ll see how he is. Manu (Lanzini) had a problem in his shoulder. We must wait to see what the doctor says to see how long he is out.”

Later telling the BBC “We will see what has happened with his shoulder but he will probably be out for some time.”

  1. Shame all 11 weren’t stretchered off – how come in everyday life you will get sacked at work if you are incompetent, but this trash never turn up to play but get their thousands of pounds every week ?
    Something seriously stinks at this football club.

  2. Sorry to say it,but this is the only way that the stubborn old goat Pellegrini will change his lineup.Enforced injuries hopefully mean he will bring in some fresh blood because this is as bad as i can remember in over 40 years.No direction,picking same group of players,dropping them one week and picking them the next.It is that nightmare where you wake up and the same thing happens over and over with no better outcome.If we did not have to pay millions in compensation he would have been sacked after today i am sure.Totally out of his depth with a struggling team.Its easy at Man City or Real Madrid with huge squad depth.

  3. Sean, sorry to mention, you have had a right go at the so called negative “keyboard Warriors” who you say must rather get behind their team than voicing their concern about the current state of the club.. Sorry to say as mentioned previously their is a huge difference between constructive criticism and criticising for the sake of criticising.
    If you cannot see that this club is in absolute turmoil right now then please take off your blinkers and see that the light at the end of the tunnel is an oncoming train about to smash this club into smithereens!!!
    How obvious is the fact this manager has lost the plot ( putting it very mildly) /the players don’t give a damn and we are heading for a huge relegation battle. Only perhaps the canaries are a worse side than us right now and it is because they have horrific injury list.
    Clueless manager, wrong formation, pathetically pedestrian midfield, shambolic defence… Poor signings, MP should do the honourable thing and resign tomorrow, owners, sell up and move on…
    This club does not have a big mentality, any ambition and easy pickings for any very average team looking for a boost in confidence..
    Please I came onto this forum 5 weeks ago to voice my concern re the delusional predictions of top 4/6 etc.
    I said let’s wait for Xmas but the writing is already on the wall.. Unless Pellegrini does not go we can prepare ourselves for years in the championship because there are plenty of sides far better than us in that division.
    Please could we also stop this rediculous constant moments of euphoria when the spuds lose a game etc For pity sake yes they are our arch enemies but they were in the champions league final last year, still playing in that competition… Something our beloved Hammers will NEVER ACHIEVE under this manager and owners.!!!!

    PS I predicted a 3-1 victory for Burnley (one didn’t have to be a rocket scientist to see this happening) on this site simply because we are so poor at the moment, and we need to make predictions with our head and not our hearts..
    Which player will be tasked to offer the usual regurgitated excuses come Monday.

    Pellegrini out, owners out, Noble upstairs in an advisory role or simply a substitute at best…
    Phew, tough, embarrassing times at the moment… We need a miracle and Fabianski is the only one on the horizon at this stage.

    • Agree abouth the poor signings & if Pelligrini had anything to do with these then he should go if he didn’t then who ever did should go.
      80 million for Haller,Fornals & Ajeti…I wouldn’t pay any of them in washers….then no money left, Adrian leaves so they get Roberto on a free…you couldn’t make it up
      We then get rid the only proven goalscorer we have in Chicharito purely beacuse he is on a high wage and again the oppurtunity for the two David’s to add a bit more cash to there bank balances…
      I have supported West Ham for 53 years and don’t think I have been more disillusioned than I am at this timeI watched the game this afternoon & didn’t care…sad days these f West Ham fans…

  4. Burnley are nothing but a bunch of brainless thugs who we made look like they are actually a re a decent team which they are everything but…this was a cynical foul by Westwood on Lanzini who had the better of him for what he should be sent off for..
    One goal that should have never stood,one defenders mistake & one goalkeepers mistake they just had the rub of the green nothing to do with quality…

  5. Burnley who of course have spent a fraction on players and don’t have a 60,000 stadium should immediately apologise for showing too much aggression to our spineless wimps, it’s just not fair

    • If you prefer lauding a bunch of ageing telentless yobs who with a bit of luck could go down than perhaphs you are supporting the wrong team ….

  6. Houston, we have a problem. The problem is the Manager.Dixit.

  7. When Lancini have been at Aljazeera and nobody know him Mr Bebe Barbulescu trained him and he saw that is good.He considered that is a good player of a good quality.Everything that is now, last Lancini are very good paid and the result is bad, the luck of quality.
    Earn a lot of millions without passion.

  8. Nobody know him until he arrive in Europa, via al shaorma . al chebab,

  9. Without the passion, everything is empty .WHUNFC
