David Moyes allays Jesse Lingard injury fears following West Ham’s defeat to Newcastle


West Ham United boss David Moyes has provided an update on Jesse Lingard’s wellbeing, on the back of the Irons’ meeting with Newcastle.

Willock strikes late

Moyes and co. were of course back in action a short time ago, in a Premier League showdown with the Magpies.

West Ham headed into the clash as overwhelming favourites to bag all 3 points, on the back of a fine spell of recent form which saw them sitting pretty in the top-4 ahead of kick-off on Saturday.

When all was said and done at St. James’ Park, however, the visitors were brought back down to earth, with a thud.

A pulsating 90 minutes of action eventually saw Newcastle emerge on the right side of a 3-2 scoreline.

After finishes from Issa Diop and Jesse Lingard dragged 10-man West Ham level with ten minutes remaining on Tyneside, Joe Willock emerged from the bench to nod home a late winner, all but securing the Magpies’ top-flight status for another season.

Lingard latest

For West Ham, on the other hand, the situation this evening looks considerably less rosy.

The Irons are now aware that, should Chelsea and Liverpool clinch victories in their respective games in hand over Moyes’ men, they will slip to 6th in the Premier League table.

West Ham’s concerns, though, were not actually restricted solely to the eventual scoreline at St. James’ Park.

Hearts were no doubt in mouths across East London when, inside the closing five minutes of action, the in-form Jesse Lingard pulled up with a fitness problem, before eventually limping off.

In turn, speaking during his post-match press conference, David Moyes was inevitably drawn on the wellbeing of the Manchester United loanee.

But, in a boost for all associated with the Londoners, the club’s boss went on to confirm that Lingard was simply suffering with cramp, with the issue not currently looking like ‘anything serious’:
