He has defended incredibly well too – and perhaps that has gone somewhat under the radar.

He made an unbelievable goal-line clearance yesterday early on in the second-half at the Etihad and subsequently slid into the post.

It looked like a nasty collision. Cresswell was left wincing in pain after his back collided with the woodwork. He was replaced by Vladimir Coufal.

David Moyes provides injury update on West Ham ace Aaron Cresswell

The 31-year-old left-back has been such a key player for the Hammers this season.

The thought of losing him for even one game is a real concern.

Moyes suggested that Cresswell is doing okay though, when speaking to Football.London after the game:

Aaron Cresswell leaves the pitch at the Etihad yesterday

“He is okay, his back is stiff after going into the goalpost. He was in a spasm really and couldn’t move his leg well at that point.”

Let’s hope that Cresswell is fit to play on Wednesday against Brighton.

If he isn’t deemed fit, Moyes will probably move Ben Johnson to left-back and bring Vladimir Coufal back into the side at right-back.

Perhaps it could end up being a blessing in disguise. Cresswell has played pretty much every single minute of every game this season and missing out for one match wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.
