The latest word on Manuel Lanzini’s status for West Ham vs Everton after frightening car crash
An update on the wellbeing of West Ham United star Manuel Lanzini has been forthcoming on Thursday evening.
For those not aware, word arrived earlier this afternoon that midfielder Lanzini had been involved in a frightening car crash earlier in the day.
As per a report from the Daily Mail, the Argentine, at the time of the accident, was being driven to West Ham’s training ground in east London by a chauffeur.
After control of the Mercedes V-Class was lost, though, the vehicle spun before landing on its side along the A12.
In a relief for all involved, Lanzini, miraculously, emerged from the scene with no injuries, before further tests at the Irons’ Rush Green complex confirmed the same.
The 29-year-old, as a result, is expected to be available for selection to David Moyes at the weekend, when West Ham mark their post-international break return to action in a Premier League meeting with Everton.

Moyes’ troops are set to head into their showdown with Everton desperate for a bounce-back result.
This comes after the capital outfit’s hopes of a top-6 finish were dealt yet another blow last time out, when a disappointing performance ultimately culminated in a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Antonio Conte’s Tottenham.
