West Ham United Percentage of Season Missed by Players Through Injury

EVERYONE COMPLAINS ABOUT HAVING INJURED PLAYERS – especially impact players that are essential to team success. It always seems that just when you’ve gotten those players off of the physio table and back onto the pitch, someone else goes right back in.

It begs the question: Just how much was that particular player missing?

In order to answer this, we’ve produced an team-by-team series that assesses just how much each player was not contributing. It starts with the first week of the season and counts each week a player was a statistic in our weekly Injury League table: From 13 Aug 2014 through 27 May 2015.

    Are these stats correct? Aaron Cresswell never missed a game but is listed at 2%

  • Spencer

    Sean is correct, he didn’t miss a minute…

  • Sean Whetstone

    He played all 38 league games and 4 FA Cup games. The only game he missed was the League Cup when we lost against Sheffield United but was only because Danny POtts was given a run out

    I think they are relying on Physioroom.com who listed Cresswell injured on the 9th August, the week before the season started, however he played that first game and the 37 afterwards
