'No way', 'Give him a chance' - West Ham fans split on whether to keep injury-prone midfielder Samir Nasri

West Ham midfielder Samir Nasri was due to come on at half-time in yesterday’s loss at Chelsea but was injured in the warm-up.

Nasri was put through his paces at half-time and looked set to be introduced for the second half. But Manuel Pellegrini’s plan was scuppered after the Frenchman picked up an injury while warming up.

It was the latest injury setback for Nasri, who is proving to be quite injury-prone since his move to West Ham.

The 31-year-old joined the Irons in early January after proving his fitness to Pellegrini while training with the club. West Ham gave Nasri a short-term deal until the end of the season.

But he has only managed six appearances since then. Granted he looks good when he plays and he has two assists to his name. However, his injury record is concerning.

The ex-Arsenal and Manchester City midfielder missed the loss against Everton with a calf injury and returned to the bench at Stamford Bridge.

But his warm-up injury ensured he was not introduced. Here are some tweets from West Ham fans discussing Nasri’s future and whether to extend his deal.
