Having only signed less than a month ago, West Ham new boy Tomáš Souček has already sustained an injury which will see him out of action for over a fortnight.

The Czech Republic midfielder picked up the knock during the Hammers spirited display at Anfield, where after leading 2-1 at one stage, they eventually fell to a 3-2 defeat to champions elect Liverpool.

Souček has been one of the few positives in his three appearances for West Ham, though he is still waiting for his first taste of victory in a Hammers shirt; his new side have not yet secured a league win since the turn of the new year.

It only adds further misery on to an already depressed fanbase, as West Ham are now without one of the starting midfielders as they gear up for a relegation dogfight. 

Some Hammers took to Twitter to vent over their seemingly endless bad-luck.

The injury means boss David Moyes will be without Souček for one of West Ham’s trickiest fixture periods of the entire campaign. The Hammers face the daunting prospect of upcoming trips to Arsenal and Tottenham, but have a huge clash at home to Southampton first.

West Ham currently sit third from bottom, two points adrift from safety. 

The 24-year-old suffered a hip flexor injury, though it was fairly innocuous and shouldn’t see Souček carry too much long-term damage.
