West Ham United have been struggling this season when it comes to injuries, with a number of their players having spent time on the sidelines.
The Hammers recently saw Andriy Yarmolenko pick up a serious injury that is expected to keep him out for the majority of his debut year with the club, whilst the likes of Manuel Lanzini, Carlos Sanchez, Jack Wilshere, Pedro Obiang and Winston Reid are all currently on the treatment table with their respective concerns.

The club posted on their official page a photo of Andy Carroll back in training with the first-team after a lengthy layoff.
The striker required surgery in the summer on a troublesome ankle injury and has spent the last five months on the sidelines.
West Ham fans will have been delighted to have seen the update from the club on social media, as it comes at a timely fashion.
The striker had been playing well last season before he picked up the injury and it is good to see him back in the fold as the season starts to enter it’s busiest stages.
Although it is unlikely he will be involved for their game against Leicester City at the weekend, it will be pleasing to see him edging closer to a return.
