Danny Mills has claimed Robert Snodgrass has been and will be a “big miss” for West Ham with the midfielder to remain sidelined for the foreseeable future.
However, the former England international, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, was adamant that the Hammers had enough quality in their squad to avoid relegation despite the 32-year-old’s absence.
Snodgrass is currently out injured with back and ankle issues and David Moyes admitted he is unsure when he will return.
David Moyes’s side have struggled upon their Premier League return and have fallen to two consecutive 2-0 losses – against Wolves and Spurs.
Mills highlighted the left-footer’s ability from set pieces as a particular loss to the side.
“He will be a big miss,” he told Football Insider.
“A player that has a lot of experience and works very hard.
“He also has a fabulous set piece which can come up wonders with a set piece whether it be a direct free kick or an opportunity top put a cross into the box.
“He will be a miss but they have other players within their squad but a lot of flair players. They need to find that balance between those with the fight and those with the technical ability.
“There is no reason why West Ham should not get themselves get out of this.”
The midfielder is joined by Sebastien Haller, Arthur Masuaku and Angelo Ogbonna on the sidelines.
Snodgrass has scored five and assisted five in his 26 appearances in all competitions this season.
