Ex-WHU Employee has been speaking on the latest edition of The West Ham Way podcast about all things relating to West Ham United.

easy one to start off with. How much do you think Declan Rice is worth?

One of the topics that he spent a bit of time on was injuries for the Hammers and it looks like Arthur Masuaku has played his last game this season.

The 27-year-old returned from injury last month against Wolverhampton Wanderers and played 67 minutes of the tie, but he has not played since the 3-2 win over Leicester , and it looks like his season is over.

Ex said on the podcast: (1:07:25) “I do believe, and this sounds more dramatic when I say it this way, but I think Masuaku and Lanzini are out for the rest of the season, which is obviously, only a week now.

“Masuaku, as I’ve said on previous shows, has fluid on his knee, which meant that he came back probably a little bit too early from the recent operation.

“He [didn’t train] last week, so maybe he might resume training this week. I don’t actually know. But even if he does, I would suggest it’s probably unlikely that he would get in the team for the next two games.”

Do you think that West Ham will miss Masuaku?

No, we don't need him

No, we don't need him

Yes, he is an important player

TIF Thoughts on Masuaku…

Masuaku started the season as an established member of West Ham’s team and played in ten of the Hammers’ first 11 Premier League games, but since then, he has had injury problems to with and has barely played.

However, he has improved a lot this season, and he has also contributed to two goals.

The Hammers, though, will have to do without him as they look to seal some sort of European football next season, with the League now looking very unlikely.

Not having Masuaku could be considered a blow, but West Ham will have to find a way to deal with things without him.
