This comes after Ex co-hosted a recent episode of The West Ham Way Podcast, where he spoke about a range of topics concerning David Moyes’ side.
“There were worries about how serious this thigh strain was going to be, but it appears to not be that serious.
“I don’t think he’ll be fit for Thursday or for Brentford, but they might save him for those two games, and then when we come back after the international break, which I think Everton away is the first game after that, he will then be available for.”
TIF Thoughts on Ex’s comments on Fredericks’ injury…
West Ham signed Fredericks back in the 2018 summer window on a free transfer from Fulham. Since then, the 28-year-old, who is currently valued at £2.25 million according to Transfermarkt, has made 65 appearances for the east London club across all competitions, in which he has managed to score three goals and provide six assists along the way.
In our view, while it’s a shame for Fredericks that he picked up this thigh problem and has a rather significant record of picking up injuries, it’s good to hear that this latest one is not too serious and there is some idea of when he will be able to fully recover and get back to action.
Are you concerned by Frederick's injury record?
Moving forward, Moyes will have to make do with the likes of Vladimir Coufal – who has played 90 minutes in every Premier League game so far for the Hammers – and Ben Johnson until Fredericks recovers and just hope they stay fit and available in the meantime.
