Parker Plays Through the Pain Barrier
About an hour before yesterday's match TalkSport were reporting that Scott Parker would be out for a while with a shoulder injury. Scott Parker fell on his shoulder during training on Saturday and looked unlikely to play against Liverpool. The Mirror claim Parker was unable to walk just three hours before the game.
However Parker was given pain killing injections and the midfielder has dismissed the injury as a mere trifle,
"It's not too bad. Got a bit of treatment on it and I got through the game, so it was fine.
"It was just a little bit of a knock and that was it, really."
The Mirror also report that West Ham co-owner David Gold was in hospital on Sunday, with the 74-year-old being treated for cholangitis and septicaemia.
