West Ham are set to take on Tottenham this weekend, and it’s game that we’ll be desperate to win. London derbies are always big games, but this one has particular spice added to it.
We’ve not had the best start to the year, but a win could genuinely turn the season around. Mauricio Pellegrini is the right man for the job, but he just needs a bit of luck to get us on a nice winning run.
Given Tottenham’s intermittent struggles this term, too, there’s a genuine chance of us being able to pull off an upset.
However, ahead of the game, many West Ham fans have noticed something quite concerning. In a video recently shared by West Ham online, star forward Marco Arnautavic appears to be limping. Take a look for yourself below towards the end of the video…
Arnautovic: Nobes, how much to hit the crossbar from here?

Now whether this is just a tactic from the club or not remains to be seen, but it certainly doesn’t look good. If he’s not fit, that would be a big problem for us.
Many West Ham fans have noticed his struggles, and it’s fair to say that they’re worried.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
that knee is definitely not okay

Why is Arnie limping?

That’s the running style of a fully fit player.

Looks doubtful for tomorrow with that limp!

He ain’t playing tomorrow jogging like that

Why show a video of him limping? And why do we keep letting him play in the international games? Let him have a rest

He needs to be sitting on bench with that knee
