West Ham United midfielder Tomas Soucek has officially been ruled out of action for approximately three weeks after suffering a low-grade injury against Liverpool on Monday (@WestHam).
The Czech Republic international has picked up a hip flexor issue, with the Hammers’ Head of Medical Services Richard Collinge suggesting that they expect him to be back after the international break in March (whufc.com). Soucek only joined the club on loan from Slavia Prague on January 29th but he went straight into their team, starting in each of their last three Premier League outings (Transfermarkt).
It is therefore a blow for them to lose him for a period in which he could miss vital games against Southampton, Arsenal, Wolves and Tottenham Hotspur (Transfermarkt) as they battle to avoid relegation to the Championship.
Naturally, plenty of West Ham fans are absolutely gutted to see that their new signing is set for a short spell on the sidelines. Many of them have taken to Twitter to respond to the news; here is what some had to say…
This is just so typical of us

He didn’t had any previous career injuries and West Ham manage to get him out withon his first month here. This club is jinxed.
