David Moyes has suggested that one West Ham player pulled his hamstring during our win over Chelsea today.
The Hammers earned a magnificent three points having twice come from behind to beat Chelsea 3-2 at the London Stadium.
The West Ham players were far from their best during the first-half and trailed 2-1 at the break.
We lost Ben Johnson and Kurt Zouma to injury but somehow managed to turn things around through a brilliant Jarrod Bowen strike and a somewhat lucky Arthur Masuaku goal.
If there are two things the Hammers have in abundance then that is character and team spirt.
We needed that win today badly after our last three Premier League games but it may have come at a cost.
David Moyes says West Ham ace has pulled his hamstring after Chelsea game
Ben Johnson was taken off just before half-time and the prognosis doesn’t look good.
Moyes spoke to reporters and responded when asked how the 21-year-old is doing, as quoted by Football.London:
“Ben looked as if he has pulled his hamstring a little bit. I need to get players back, Ryan Frederick’s needs to come back, Aaron Cresswell and as you well know we don’t have Angelo Ogbonna for a while because of his ACL.”
Let’s hope that it’s not a serious hamstring injury.
We all know too well how long that kind of injury can keep players out for.
Johnson has been absolutely brilliant for West Ham this season and we need him back as soon as possible.
At least we have a week now until our next Premier League game. So hopefully Johnson can rest up and return to action before not too long.
