West Ham United manager David Moyes has confirmed that teenage midfielder George Earthy is awake but was rushed to the hospital after suffering a gruesome head injury against Fulham on Sunday. The 19-year-old was a late substitute before a freak collision with teammate Edson Alvarez in the 2-0 defeat at the London Stadium. Moyes called on Earthy in the 82nd minute as West Ham trailed by two goals after Andreas Pereira’s brace on either side of half-time.

However, what should’ve been a proud day that marked the teenager’s Premier League debut transformed into a nightmare following a nasty clash with Alvarez. Medical staff rushed onto the pitch to tend to the downed starlet, who required oxygen during the six minutes of treatment. Earthy was conscious after leaving the pitch on a stretcher, and West Ham later provided an update on his condition. “West Ham United can confirm George Earthy will undergo an assessment in a London hospital this evening following the incident which saw him stretchered off during today’s Premier League fixture against Fulham,” a statement read.

“The midfielder – who entered the field as a second half substitute to make his Premier League debut against the Cottagers – was taken off in stoppage time.” After full-time, Moyes praised Earthy’s early impact and training performances in the build-up to the game. His first three or four touches were terrific, really disappointed for the boy. He has been doing ever so well in training.

We will all look after him.
