West Ham fear Cresswell lay-off


West Ham defender Aaron Cresswell could be sidelined for up to six months with the knee injury he suffered in the Hammers' 3-0 pre-season victory over Karlsruher on Saturday.

The 26-year-old left-back, who has missed just one Premier League match during the past two seasons, suffered the injury in a challenge with Karlsruher midfielder Grischa Promel.

West Ham co-chairman David Gold confirmed a story on the website "Claret and Hugh" that Cresswell could be sidelined for between one and six months.

"CandH sources are accurate and we are apprehensive but it doesn't look minor. We await the scans in the next day or so. Good luck Aaron. DG," Gold wrote on his official Twitter account.

Hammers' defender Winston Reid says the friendly victory over the German 2 Bundeliga side was a good work-out ahead of the Europa League third qualifying round tie against Slovenian side NK Domzale at the Stozice Stadium on Thursday.

"It was a really good performance on Saturday," he said. "We knew we needed and we wanted to win a game, so it was nice to get one under our belts.

"It was a competitive match and a match we needed going into Europe this week. Conditions were really hot, so it was a good test for everyone.

"We made good use of the ball and when we didn’t have it we tried to save our energy and wait for the moments when we could press the opposition.

"All in all, we scored three good goals and it was a good match."
