West Ham injuries: Lanzini, Reid and Carroll’s expected return dates

The Hammers are still in the relegation mire with 11 games to go in the Premier League, and with a good result a must at Anfield, manager David Moyes will be relying on the health of several players being up to scratch tomorrow.

A long-term foot injury to Andy Carroll and a hamstring injury to influential midfielder Manuel Lanzini will be weighing heavily on the Scottish gaffer’s mind – as will a lack of availability in defence with Winston Reid suffering from illness and Arthur Masuaku currently serving a six-match suspension

Here is the lowdown on the injuries concerning West Ham at the moment, according to PremierInjuries:

Manuel Lanzini

When was he injured?: Lanzini has been out for over a month since pulling up with a hamstring injury in the 1-1 home draw with Bournemouth on January 20th.

Potential injury return date: 24/02/2018

Will he be missed?: The Argentinian is critical to Moyes’ plans, having scored a brace in West Ham’s last league win, and the Irons gaffer has said himself that Lanzini could not be replaced in the January transfer window.

What the manager said: “The Lanzini one we’re worried about. I don’t think you can suddenly say, okay we’ll go out, see if someone else is out there waiting to be bought of the level of Lanzini, because I don’t think you’ve got that.”

Winston Reid

When was he injured?: The Kiwi is currently struggling with a throat infection.

Potential injury return date: 24/02/2018

Will he be missed?: With fellow defender Arthur Masuaku suspended, Moyes will be hoping that Reid will be back to tomorrow to replace James Collins in West Ham’s back line.

Andy Carroll

When was he injured?: Carroll broke his foot on January 2nd in West Ham’s 2-1 win over West Brom.

Potential injury return date: 21/04/2018

Will he be missed?: The Hammers have had decent goal returns this season from Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez, but the physical prowess of Carroll provides the side with an additional threat that will be badly missed in the next few weeks.

What the manager said: “To lose him is certainly a big miss. We are not sure whether the ankle will need an operation or not. To lose him takes away a big part of our armoury. It is frustrating for Andy, but it is frustrating for us.”
