Arthur Masuaku missed West Ham’s defeat time Liverpool on Monday night through illness a report by Football.london claims. The 26-year defender had travelled to Anfield with the first team but was not announced in the Moyes 18 man match day squad
Masuaku hasn’t been one of the best performers this season so the manager would have been forgiven by supporters for dropping him for selection reasons but it now appears his hand was forced as the player reported sick.
The left-back has made 15 Premier League appearances this season picking up a red card in the games against Aston Villa.
He was often excluded from Manuel Pellegrini’s match day squad earlier this season leading to speculation that the two had a bust up. In July last year Pellegrini handed the DR Congo international a new contract extension keeping him with the club until 2024.
Masuaku joined the Hammers from Olympiacos in August 2016 on a four-year contract for a £6.2 million transfer fee.
