West Ham United have confirmed that defender Ryan Fredericks has picked up a hamstring injury.
The Irons right-back was taken off at the start of the second half after feeling discomfort after an end-to-end first period.
It was the only negative in a near-perfect game at the London Stadium, in which David Moyes’ men sealed a 4-0 victory against Wolves.
West Ham confirmed the update on their website on Monday afternoon.
Fredericks was sent for an initial scan on Monday, and it was confirmed that he had suffered a low-grade muscle injury.
The update claimed that the defender will be back after the international break, with the first game being a London derby against Spurs.
Head of Medical Richard Collinge claimed that the Irons mainstay has already begun a period of rehabilitation on the setback.
The 27-year-old faced some stick last season from fans, but he has started this campaign much better – getting an assist at Arsenal and then impressing on Sunday.
In his 46 minutes of action, Fredericks won three of his aerial battles and completed a single tackle, interception and two clearances [WhoScored].
It was his defensive fragilities that have seen the Irons target other right-backs over the summer, but his performances will have pleased Moyes since.
Ben Johnson, who came on against Wolves, will now get a massive opportunity against both Everton and Leicester, can he take it?
