West Ham: Felipe Anderson ‘ahead of schedule’ in injury comeback

West Ham: Felipe Anderson ‘ahead of schedule’ in injury comeback - West Ham

West Ham United midfielder Felipe Anderson is “ahead of schedule” in his injury comeback, according to club insider @ExWHUemployee on Twitter.

The Brazilian international, who joined from Lazio in 2018, has been out of action since their Premier League defeat against Sheffield United in early January.

As mentioned, Anderson has not featured at all for the Hammers since completing 90 minutes against the Blades on January 10th. He picked up a back injury in that game as a result of a heavy tackle from Muhamed Besic and managed to play until the end, but hasn’t been able to play at all since then (Transfermarkt).

However, according to @ExWHUemployee, the 26-year-old could be back in contention for their game against Manchester City, which was recently rearranged and will be played next Wednesday (whufc.com).

Whilst Anderson hasn’t been at his best this season, his potential return would still be a big boost for West Ham as they continue their battle to avoid relegation to the Championship.

Indeed, he remains one of their most creative outlets and is currently averaging 1.3 key passes per game in the league, whilst also creating four big chances (SofaScore). With their other attacking minded midfielder Manuel Lanzini currently struggling for form with no goals or assists in his last nine league appearances (Transfermarkt), it makes the need for Anderson’s creativity even greater.

He has proven before that he can score goals at this level too – last season he netted nine times in the Premier League, so having him back in the side certainly makes them more of a threat going forward.
