Manuel Lanzini is injured again

More bad news for West Ham’s Manuel Lanzini.

The Argentine midfielder is once again injured.

The news became apparent when Lanzini was omitted from West Ham’s matchday squad against Man United on Sunday.

How did Manuel Lanzini get injured?

According to Football London, Lanzini’s latest setback happened during the recent international break.

Of course, the West Ham star suffered a horrific injury before the 2018 World Cup while training with Argentina, which forced him to miss the majority of last season.

But Lanzini played for West Ham vs Aston Villa!

Yes, that’s true, however Football London report:

Lanzini played through the 0-0 draw against Aston Villa on Monday night with the problem but it has now ruled him out of the visit of Manchester United at London Stadium today (Sunday).

Did West Ham’s medical staff make a mistake allowing Lanzini to play against Villa?

What exactly is wrong with Lanzini?

The Hammers playmaker is reportedly suffering from “bone bruising in his foot”, as revealed by reporter Sam Inkersole.

How long may Lanzini be out for?

Here’s the real bad news for West Ham, as Football London claim:

Manuel Lanzini will be out of action for three to four weeks after picking up an injury while away on international duty with Argentina.

What games could Lanzini miss?

Aside from Sunday’s match against Man United, Lanzini could miss another four fixtures over the next four weeks.

On Wednesday night, Oxford take on the Irons in the Carabao Cup.

West Ham then face Premier League maches against Bournemouth, Crystal Palace and Everton.

If Lanzini returns in a month’s time, he could play against Sheffield United at the London Stadium on October 26th.
