As the Hammers prepare to engage in a battle to save their Premier League status, the club has been hit by a massive injury blow.
Against Swansea City last weekend, a game in which the Hammers were trounced 4-1, two of our first team squad picked up injuries.
The most serious of which saw Winston Reid manage to suffer a serious knee injury whilst also managed to get knocked unconscious.
The 29-year-old was carried from the field of play on a stretcher with an oxygen mask strapped to his face.
Today, the club has confirmed that the centre-back will not play again this season, a savage blow to the clubs aspirations for the remainder of the season.
Continuing on the injury theme, the Hammers full-back, Sam Byram, also picked up an injury that saw him leave the field of play.
Today there are also reports emerging that the 24-year-old picked up an ankle injury that could also see him miss the rest of the season.
A case of it never rains it pours in West Ham`s case.
