ExWHUemployee has suggested that Michail Antonio’s injury may be worse than West Ham boss David Moyes first feared.
The 30-year-old attacker has been in fine form for the Hammers over the past few months.
David Moyes converted Antonio into a centre-forward when Premier League action resumed in June.
And the former Nottingham Forest man hasn’t let anyone down.
The powerful West Ham ace puts in a real shift every time he plays. He is a general nuisance to play against and offers our defence a real outlet.
But aside from that, Antonio has been banging the goals in for fun as well. The 30-year-old has scored 11 goals in 15 Premier League games since football resumed after lockdown.
He is undoubtedly one of David Moyes’s most important players at the London Stadium now.
But there could be trouble on the horizon. Antonio limped off against Tottenham nine days ago, before doing the same on Saturday against Manchester City.
David Moyes said after the game that he hoped that Antonio’s injury wasn’t too serious.
ExWHUemployee has suggested that the Scot may have underestimated the 30-year-old’s injury, however:
The word coming out of the club is that it isn’t as positive as Moyes first hoped. Confirmation should come tomorrow https://t.co/dx1PF7tbsd

Let’s just hope that Antonio isn’t out for too long. In truth, resting him against Liverpool on Saturday would have been a wise move anyway, considering how much football he has played.
And that decision may have already been made for Moyes.
Here’s to hoping that we don’t suffer too much without the 30-year-old in the side.
