West Ham’s plans for the new Premier League season were issued a huge blow following an injury sustained to Manuel Lanzini but the midfielder has issued an update on his recovery.

The Argentina international was forced to miss his nation’s World Cup campaign in Russia after suffering a cruciate ligament injury in his knee, which led to some outlets stating he will miss the entirety of the 2018-19 season.

However, the 25-year-old has quelled those fears with a post on Twitter where he says he is targeting a return for the start of 2019.
