Double disaster for Moyes


Filed: Wednesday, 7th March 2018
By: Staff Writer


Winston Reid and Sam Byram have been ruled out for the remainder of the season after picking up knocks against Swansea.

The New Zealand international spent around ten minutes receiving treatment for a knee injury during the first half of Saturday's 4-1 defeat, before being carried off the field on a stretcher.

Meanwhile Byram - who replaced the unfortunate Reid on Saturday - is also expected to miss the rest of the campaign after sustaining a fresh ankle injury during the same game, despite remaining on the field until the final whistle.

The news will come as a massive blow to David Moyes, who lost Angelo Ogbonna to injury before the Swansea trip and can no longer call upon the services of Jose Fonte, who was sold to Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang last month.

That leaves an aging James Collins and the inexperienced Declan Rice as the club's only fit central defenders - and veteran Pablo Zabaleta as West Ham's only available right back for the final nine matches of the season.
