After that 5-0 humiliation, the supporters must have thought that it can’t get much worse, getting trounced on the opening day in your back yard live on TV, but it seems that it can. The injury update has come in ahead of this weekend’s trip to Brighton and it isn’t pretty.
According to the West Ham website, both Sebastien Haller and Felipe Anderson are recovering from kicks that they found themselves on the wrong end of against Manchester City, and they’re now doubts, joining Mark Noble on the sidelines as the Irons travel to The Amex Stadium.

Seriously our players are made of glass. Couple of little kicks & they miss a game

Didn’t take long lol. If we don’t have both of them expect a defeat.

One match into the season and the two most expensive players in club history already in doubt of missing the next match. Classic.

The Irons, as you can clearly see, are far from happy with the latest update and will be desperate to get a result at Brighton despite their setbacks.
