West Ham are yet to know the extent of Kurt Zouma’s injury problem after a scan was carried out on him on Sunday, according to Claret and Hugh.

A check was conducted on the Hammers centre-back yesterday (5 December), but the club may have to wait until later today or tomorrow before getting a full prognosis, and an inconclusive result means he will be having another scan in the coming hours.

Claret and Hugh further report that “there are fears inside the club” over Zouma’s knee knock given the injury to Angelo Ogbonna, but insiders continue to hope for the best.

Cause for concern?

With the Italian centre-back out of the campaign after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament and undergoing surgery, West Ham will be really wishing something similar has not happened to the Frenchman.

He spent six months on the treatment table after a knee injury five years ago while at Chelsea, and medicals held prior to his move to the London Stadium in the summer flagged it up.

Zouma has not had suffered any serious injury since then, though, and the Hammers will hope Saturday’s (4 December) incident was just a slight knock.

Not getting a quick result from the first scan does not look good, though.

Being without the summer signing for long will be a huge blow, and David Moyes will need to bring in defensive reinforcements in January.

Zouma has proven to be a solid addition to the Hammersdefence and is one of the reasons why they are fourth in the Premier League table after 15 games.

Moyes will be sweating over his fitness, and Issa Diop and Craig Dawson will both need to step up and prove themselves should the club lose the Frenchman to a long-term blow.
