The card, which was ambitiously recruited for a rebound, collapsed in 18 minutes.
West Ham United beat Everton 1-0 in the 21st round of the English Premier League (PL) in the 2022-23 season held at the London Stadium in London, England on the 22nd (Korean time).
West Ham (18 points), which escaped from a 7-game winless streak (1 draw, 6 losses), rose to 16th place. It was one point ahead of Bournemouth (17 points) in 18th place in the relegation zone.
West Ham are in an unfamiliar spot this season. Recently, I have been competing in European club competitions in the upper middle ranks, but this time I am competing to stay.
The current record is 5 wins, 3 draws and 12 losses. The losing streak was repeated, and even after a long-awaited victory, the momentum could not be maintained. At the end of last year, they suffered five straight losses and plummeted. 토토사이트
West Ham desperately needed a turnaround. In particular, there was a lot of concern about the frontline scoring ability. Michael Antonio and Gianlucas Schamaca scored only five goals.
Eventually, West Ham embraced Danny Ings (30) through the winter transfer market. It is a veteran attacking resource recording 68 goals and 19 assists in 189 matches in the Premier League alone. West Ham invested 12 million euros (approximately 16.1 billion won), revealing its will to stay.
That’s why the match against Everton was so important. There was no point difference with Everton, who were in the relegation zone. It was a battle of more than 6 points, which is commonly said.
However, bad news struck right before the victory. Ings, who was put in in the 27th minute of the second half, injured his knee in an opponent’s tackle. It was reported that there were no minor injuries.
The British media ‘Guardian’ reported the news of Ings’ injury and explained, “West Ham are likely not able to use Ings for the next few weeks. It will be a big setback for David Moyes.”
Ings’ absence is known to be about a month. He is unavailable for the string of matches leading up to Newcastle United and Chelsea, including the FA Cup.
The media said, “There is a possibility that Ings will return to Tottenham Hotspur. However, the reality is that the next game, against Nottingham Forest,” predicted that he would be able to return only at the end of February.
