Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter to react after it was revealed that Connor Wickham has been struck by yet another injury problem, as revealed by Roy Hodgson in his pre-match press conference before the visit of West Ham.
RH: Kouyate hasn't recovered so he's not available. Julian Speroni has a minor injury. Souare and Wickham have been injured for a while now and unfortunately Tomkins doesn't look like he'll be able to play.

The English forward only recently made his long-awaited return to first-team action, earning a start in the 2-0 win over Tottenham in the FA Cup at Selhurst Park – a game in which he scored the opener and celebrated passionately.
Sadly for the 25-year-old, however, he has suffered a setback having worked so hard to get fit, and his chances of game time this season with the south London side are now looking bleak after yet another issue, coupled with the arrival of Michy Batshuayi.

Was missing last weekend too. Not sure he’s ever going to get a run of games again tbh.

I hadn't realised Wickham was injured again. Any details on what he's done and how long he's out for? #CPFC

I know its rotten luck, but surely its a bit ridiculous the love he inspires – the cost per goal…
