Chelsea loanee Victor Moses still waiting for results of hamstring scan

Back in the summer, Victor Moses impressed over his few games with Chelsea during pre-season.  Despite being arguably the only player to come out with any credit from the series of matches in the USA, in the end, his good showings weren't enough for him to lock down a place, and he was loaned out to our cross-London rivals West Ham, where he's continued his good form. Unfortunately, as he tends to do each and every season, Moses appeared to suffer a fairly significant injury in West Ham's last game against Manchester United.  The full extent of the hamstring damage will only be known after a scan but it's not looking good.

"We have to wait for a scan [on Moses] but it doesn't look good. It's not like cramp. I don't know if it's three, four, five or six weeks."

Ever since his side lost former Lille player Dimitri Payet to an ankle injury, West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has been struggling to get good results with the club; their last victory was back in October against Chelsea. The club also have Manuel Lanzini, Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho in recovery from injury problems, with the first two set to come back in their next game against Stoke City, and the latter to be recovered only in February along with Payet.  Just today, they also lost key defender Winston Reid to injury as well.

Here's hoping Moses won't miss much playing time so he can continue to take points from our opponents in the bottom-three and beyond.
