West Ham’s Manuel Lanzini and Dimitri Payet are currently out injured.

West Ham duo Lanzini and Payet are just two of the currently injured stars at West Ham, and the Argentine star has sent a message on Instagram showing them recovering in the gym together.

The duo are currently out of action, along with Winston Reid, Diafra Sakho and Victor Moses, and are slowly working their way back to fitness after picking up differing injuries.

Payet was badly tackled in the game against Everton which is keeping him out, whilst Lanzini suffered a thigh problem in the warm up against Manchester United last weekend, and is set to be out until the New Year.

The loss of two key players, along with all the other troubles West Ham are facing, deals a real blow to head coach Slaven Bilic, who will be fielding a make shift team throughout the most hectic and challenging period of the season.

Both attacking midfielders should be back in the early weeks of January, and thankfully for Hammers fans, them being in the gym shows they are at least completing physical work.

They are not injured enough to be completely out of action, and with hard work - and some luck - over the next few weeks, it could be that the duo are ready to play for West Ham before their expected return dates.
