West Ham United boss David Moyes has delivered a positive injury update on Aaron Cresswell ahead of Brighton.
Cresswell had to be withdrawn due to injury for the second time in recent games when West Ham lost to Everton on Sunday.
The left-back has been key to West Ham’s superb season providing seven assists so far.
Cresswell concern after influential left-back picks up another injury
West Ham face three must-win games to finish the season, starting with Brighton on Saturday.
And supporters are concerned Cresswell will be missing.
But Moyes has given West Ham fans a big boost after revealing Cresswell may have only suffered a dead leg which means he should be ok.
While painful initially a dead leg will be fine within 48 hours – especially with massage and ice treatment.
Moyes provides positive update on suspected ‘dead leg’
“Aaron Cresswell got a challenge which caused a problem, but overall I think the players have been in great condition and been very good,” Moyes said in his post match press conference (Football London).
“Cressie I think was a dead leg which won’t be so bad if that is the case.”
West Ham insiders Claret and Hugh have claimed that Cresswell will be sent for a scan as a precaution.
The good news for Moyes is that Angelo Ogbonna will have had another week of training.
And Brighton will be missing three key players including influential captain Lewis Dunk for the visit of West Ham.

That includes a 2-2 draw at the London Stadium earlier this season in which Dunk was instrumental for Brighton, stopping the Hammers at one end and scoring at the other.
