Mystery over Cresswell

David Moyes admits that he is totally in the dark over when Aaron Cresswell will be able to return to action for the Hammers.

The left-back was again absent as the Irons faced Spurs in the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup.

Spurs ultimately won the game 2-1, thanks to goals from Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura, and booked a clash with Chelsea in the semi-finals.

Without Cresswell in the side, Arthur Masuaku was tasked with playing at left wing-back and did not exactly cover himself in glory, with both Spurs goals coming down his side.

Cresswell has not been in action for the Hammers since the snowy clash with Manchester City back in November, when he injured his back by sliding into the post.

He has missed four Premier League games, against Brighton, Chelsea, Burnley and Arsenal and the Hammers have only won one of those games, beating the Blues 3-2.

And Moyes has now worryingly admitted that he just doesn’t know when he’s going to be back, telling reporters, as per Football.London: “I don’t know, I can’t give you an answer. We are missing him.”

  1. Hope Cressy comes back soon. That he’s missed is an understatement. Makes me laugh when I hear fans singing about how Arthur Mauaku never gives the ball away. I think it must be some kind of tongue in cheek ironic joke. Fact is Masuaku gave the ball away 23 times against Spurs. Just not good enough. Never gives the ball away? You must be joking.

  2. Totally agree with the names you list Hugh. But I’d add another, more controversial, one – Benrahma. For me, nowhere near a Premier League player unless they change the rules and make the goals 4 times larger! Impact sub for 15-20 mins at best. He lost me after the Arsenal game, the stupid short free kick when it needed to be chucked in the box and how he was so easily dispossessed for their 2nd. Felipe Anderson Mk 2.
