Lanzini has suffered from injuries this season and they’ve stopped hm having the same impact he did last season. He is, however, an integral part of the West Ham team and would be a massive loss against Southampton, in a game that David Moyes really has to win. It’s a been a tough season for West Ham fans and the last thing they need is to lose any more attackers to injury.
