With no players around him, fears about the severity of his injury were instantly heightened and have now been confirmed by the club.

A statement on the club’s website from Head of Medical Services Richard Collinge said: “Andriy’s operation went well and we will now work hard to support him throughout the rehabilitation process.

“His recovery will be planned very carefully and we have every confidence that he will return to full fitness within the scheduled timeframe.”

The winger arrived from Borussia Dortmund in the summer after a £17.75 million move.


After a slow start in east London, the 28-year-old scored two excellent goals on his first Premier League start against Everton and became a permanent fixture in Manuel Pellegrini’s side.
