Sports scientist rules out West Ham star for Bramall Lane trip

West Ham midfielder Lucas Paqueta is anticipated to be sidelined for the next few weeks, as reported by Dr. Rajpal Brar.

Observing the club’s physios applying ice to Lucas Paqueta’s calf, the injury expert, Dr. Rajpal Brar, has raised concerns, suggesting a potential worst-case scenario of a muscle rupture.

Lucas Paqueta won’t be available for West Ham’s upcoming match against Sheffield United on Sunday due to his injury. Speaking exclusively with West Ham Zone, Brar, a specialist in Physical Therapy and a Sports Scientist, provided insights into the injury situation.

“If it’s a muscular injury, the best case is calf tightness which is Grade O and the worst case is a muscle rupture which is Grade 4.”

The 26-year-old has showcased his impact with two goals and five assists in 18 Premier League appearances this season.

Sunday’s visitors are already without winger Mohamed Kudus due to his involvement with AFCON, and they could also be without Jarrod Bowen too. Missing all three of the attacking trio would be a colossal loss as they’ve been involved in a staggering 27 goals combined in the 33 Premier League goals the Hammers have scored.

The Blades have a huge chance to get a victory at Bramall Lane om Sunday given these circumstances.
