(Reuters) – Manuel Lanzini is likely to be sidelined for the rest of the year after suffering a fractured collarbone during West Ham United’s 3-0 defeat by Burnley in the Premier League.

The Argentine midfielder, who missed most of last season with a knee injury, fell awkwardly after being fouled by Burnley’s Ashley Westwood during the closing stages of the match on Saturday.

Lanzini required oxygen and was carried off on a stretcher at Turf Moor, before the club confirmed https://www.whufc.com/news/articles/2019/november/10-november/manuel-lanzini-and-mark-noble-update the player would have surgery in London on Monday.

The problems continue to mount for West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini, whose team slipped to 16th. They are now without a win in their last six league matches and sit just five points above the relegation zone.
