ExWHUemployee has claims that West Ham United duo Craig Dawson and Michail Antonio have nothing to worry about amid injury fears.

In their last Premier League outing, David Moyes’ men cruised to a 4-0 away win over Norwich City. Unfortunately, though, both Dawson and Antonio had to be withdrawn early.

Has Michail Antonio been good enough for West Ham recently?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Speaking after the game, Moyes explained to club media why the duo had to be pulled off, saying: “Mick’s got a bit of a knock on his hip. Dawson took one in the calf.”

However, while talking on The West Way Ham podcast, Ex was able to calm concerns about the severity of either issue.

He said (57:23): “Dawson and Antonio are expected to be fine. They were just taken off because we were 3-0 up.

“And 4-0 from the penalty, with Dawson taken off as a precaution. You know, we were winning, the game was dead. So we were able to rest them.

“I would have taken Antonio off anyway to be honest with you, injury or not. Because of the fact that the game was finished. I don’t think there’s anything to worry about [with] those two.”

TIF thoughts on Craig Dawson, Michail Antonio and West Ham…

Both players have been pretty fundamental to the club this season and so fans will want each man to be fit in the final two games of the season.

Indeed, Dawson has been a rock at the back this term, playing 48 games across all competitions while even chipping in with four goals and two assists too.

Antonio has contributed plenty as well. He has reached double figures for both goals and assists as the club’s key striker this term, helping the side push into the latter stages of the Europa League.

With top six to fight for in the last two games of the campaign, this latest update from Ex will certainly be welcome news to those who follow the club closely.
