West Ham’s injury woes continue to mount as Aaron Cresswell limps off vs Leicester

West Ham’s injury woes continue to mount as Aaron Cresswell limps off vs Leicester

West Ham see off Leicester

West Ham played host to Leicester City on Sunday afternoon, aiming to regain a spot in the Premier League’s top-four.

The Hammers climbed into the Champions League places on Monday after seeing of Wolves, but were knocked down to 5th on Saturday after Chelsea smashed Crystal Palace.

David Moyes and co., though, were aware that a win against Leicester would guide them back into the top-four, and to within a single point of the Foxes.

And, when all was said and done, secure the three points is exactly what the London-based outfit managed. It was Jesse Lingard who was once again at the heart of everything positive from an Irons perspective on Sunday.

The Manchester United loanee netted twice in the first 45, with his opening strike particularly impressive:

Lingard then found Tomas Soucek, who set up Jarrod Bowen for West Ham’s third of the day just 48 minutes in:

Kelechi Iheanacho did pull two back for Leicester late on, but his brace proved little more than a consolation.

Aaron Cresswell injury blow

On an otherwise positive afternoon for West Ham, however, they also suffered a big blow on the personnel front.

Both Michail Antonio and Declan Rice are currently sidelined for the Hammers, with what could prove to be fairly lengthy injuries.

Then, early in the second-half at the London Stadium, Aaron Cresswell was forced off, after going down twice with what appeared to be a hamstring issue.
