West Ham United threw a spanner in the works of Tottenham Hotspur's title hunt yesterday evening, defeating their London rivals 1-0 at Upton Park.
The result saw Spurs miss out on the chance to go top of the Premier League after Leicester City had drawn 2-2 with West Bromwich Albion the previous day.
It was Michail Antonio who once again proved the West Ham hero. The winger put in an excellent performance and struck home a header in the first-half to earn West Ham all three points
But were there any injury worries for him in the game. He appeared to be struggling late on. He was not alone. James Collins came off in the 66th minute for teenager Reece Oxford and also appeared to be struggling with an injury.
After the game, there was an update on injuries from West Ham co-chairman David Gold.
He admitted that Collins was struggling with an injury, but that Antonio had simply ran himself into the ground:
James Collins, it looks like a hamstring. Antonio ran himself into the ground but is OK great goal. dg https://t.co/iSpEnqc5ZF— David Gold (@davidgold) March 2, 2016
West Ham fans will be pleased to hear Antonio is fine but the Welshman's niggle will concern fans. Collins has been in top form this season and Winston Reid and James Tomkins are also currently sidelined.
Italian defender Angelo Ogbonna was also injured. He used an icepack after the game after taking a knock. But he informed Gold he was fine, as confirmed this morning:
Ogbonna's foot was covered in a ice pack after the game but he said he would be OK. dg https://t.co/8JC2K4GjrK— David Gold (@davidgold) March 3, 2016
Hopefully it is not a serious problem for him and Collins, as centre-backs are currently in short supply at Upton Park.
