West Ham fears Chicharito hamstring injury

The hits just keep coming for West Ham.

David Moyes has not even managed a game for the Hammers, but he likely will have to make do without star striker Javier Hernandez for the near future.

Chicharito limped off in the 51st minute in Mexico’s 3-3 friendly draw with Belgium in Brussles, and the fear is a hamstring injury, although nothing is confirmed. Mexico head coach Juan Carlos Osorio did not give the media an update after the match.

Hernandez has been a bright spot in an otherwise dismal start to the Premier League season for West Ham. The Mexican star has appeared in all 11 of West Ham’s Premier League matches so far, scoring 11 goals even though he’s been stuck out wide for much of it by axed manager Slaven Bilic in favor of target man Andy Carroll.

West Ham currently sits in 18th position with just two wins on the young season.
