Many West Ham fans have expressed their concerns over Andriy Yarmolenko as he heads of for the international break.
Can West Ham make the top six?
The Ukrainian winger has been selected by his country for their Euro 2020 qualifying matches versus Lithuania and Portugal.
If Twitter is anything to go by, then many West Ham fans will be biting their nails for the next two weeks, in the hope that he can swerve any potential injury.
Last season, Yarmolenko’s Achilles tendon rupture injury kept him out for a huge 32 games, and with the Ukrainian in superb form since his return, West Ham fans are desperate to not see him on the sidelines for so long again.
Yarmolenko has featured in seven out of a potential eight matches and is the second top scorer at the club with three goals. WhoScored have also rated his performances, with the player averaging a 7.04/10 from his matches, giving him the fifth-highest average in the squad.
Here are some of the responses from West Ham fans to the news of his call-up.
