West Ham have undertaken scans on both Jarrod Bowen & Michail Antonio for their respective injuries, with ExWHUEmployee providing an update.

During the current international break, ahead of the return of Premier League football this weekend, we have had a number of players away representing their countries – unfortunately with a number of them understood to have picked up injuries.

Firstly, Michail Antonio suffered a knee complaint when playing for Jamaica against Canada in the week, with the Hammers striker leaving the field after just 20 minutes, with reports suggesting that the injury was serious and the player requiring months on the sidelines.

Furthermore news then came that Jarrod Bowen had withdrawn from the England squad with a knee injury of his own, although there was hope it wouldn’t serious – although a scan was required to understand the extent of the issue.

Our Podcast co-host and club insider ExWHUEmployee has now provided an update on the situation.

“Scans have shown that Antonio’s injury isn’t as bad as first feared and they are hopeful he could return within the month,” stated Ex on The West Ham Way Patreon.

“Bowen’s scans have shown fluid on the knee. This has a varying time of recovery. He will now see a specialist to determine how long that is.

“If found to be minor then it could mean a quick recovery, however at this stage it is too early to determine the extent of the issue until the specialist has assessed the situation.”

There is also a current concern surrounding the fitness of Mohammed Kudus, who is reported to have left training for Ghana over a pain felt in his back. At this stage the club have no information on the situation, with Ex to provide an update once this becomes clear.
