Andriy Yarmolenko’s season hangs in the balance after the West Ham winger was stretchered off during Saturdays loss to London-rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
The summer signing from Borussia Dortmund was just beginning to find his feet following a slow start to his Premier League career. Yarmolenko made his full debut at Goodison Park [GW5] scoring twice and has become staple of Manuel Pellegrini’s line-up. Post-match the Hammers boss confirmed Yarmolenko had a problem "between his foot and his ankle" with early tests confirming an Achilles injury. However, a further assessment confirmed a rupture and plans are already afoot to undergo surgery. Reports suggest the 28-year-old could be missing for around six months, although Premier League injury data collected over the previous decade indicates that the average return-to-play is nearer to seven months [221 days] meaning Yarmolenko would miss the final domestic fixture of the campaign on May 12. His absence opens the door to Grady Diangana who announced his first-team arrival with a standout performance in the 8-0 demolition of Macclesfield in the Carabao Cup last month. Oct 21 - 6:32 PM
