Michail Antonio will not be a part of the West Ham squad which hosts Crystal Palace due to a “frustrating” hamstring injury.
The 27-year-old has been out of contention since his side won 2-0 to Newport County in the League Cup in late August.
Michail Antonio’s statement
“It’s been very frustrating for the fact that this is my third one,”
“Every time that I’ve done it, I’ve done it in a different place so it’s not a recurring injury, it’s a different one,” Michail Antonio had said.
“The first time I did it, I did it at the bottom on my left, then I’ve done it at the top of my left, I’ve done the top of my right now.
“Hopefully, I can stay fit, it’s not the muscle I’m injuring, it’s the tendons,”
“I’ve just got to try and strengthen that somehow.
“I’m taking more collagen shots and more turmeric and anything else that can make them stronger,” Antonio concluded.
