West Ham centre-back Angelo Ogbonna could be back from his injury within two months, according to Football.London.

The 33-year-old Italian damaged his anterior cruciate ligament during his side’s 3-2 win over Liverpool ahead of the international break.

Ogbonna is yet to go under the knife, and should he avoid surgery, he could be back for the Hammers in January.

Football.London reported on their website: “The best case scenario for Ogbonna is non-surgical treatment and a period of only two months out.

“However, should he require surgery, the Italian’s season would be effectively over.”

Good news?

West Ham are already preparing for life without the former Juventus man for the remainder of the campaign, but a miracle could soon be on the cards.

David Moyes has Issa Diop and Craig Dawson to call on in place of the injured centre-back, but neither of them can bring what the veteran brings to the table.

The Hammers could be looking to bring in another defender in January, but they will have to wait and see if Ogbonna will avoid going under the knife.

He is one of the reasons why West Ham have had a brilliant start to the campaign, and having him back during the second half of the season will be a massive boost.

Dawson and Diop can step up in his absence, and both have been brilliant in the League Cup and Europa League.

Nevertheless, Moyes prefers Ogbonna for a reason, and he will prefer to have him back as soon as possible.
