West Ham striker Marko Arnautovic is playing with an injury, he has revealed.

The Austrian centre-forward has admitted that he is playing through the pain barrier. But he is willing to do so for club and country.

Arnautovic has an “inflammation” on his knee. There is bruising on the bone and it is an ongoing niggle.

This is preventing the Hammers forward from training for a full week in between games as he has to rest.

But the Hammers are desperate to have their talisman fit and his tally of four goals in seven games this season has helped West Ham recover from a poor start.

However, West Ham fans are worried about Arnautovic playing during the international break.

He is currently away with the Austrian national team and is ready to play through his injury for his country.

Here are some opinions from West Ham fans after Arnie’s update.
