Hodgson provides Van Aanholt injury update

3 December 2019

After Patrick van Aanholt was forced from the pitch against AFC Bournemouth in the 29th minute tonight, Roy Hodgson delivered the below update.

Speaking in his post-match press conference, he said: "The only positive from that is he came off very early - the moment he felt something. He didn’t think he’d actually torn in away way but he definitely felt something in the hamstring, and came off straight away.

"He’ll have treatment of course tomorrow and on Thursday, he’ll probably have a scan. We just have to wait and hope we can get him back quickly. But he certainly wasn’t under the impression himself that ‘that’s me out for a number of weeks’. But until we’ve had the scan, until the doctor’s had a really good chance to have a look at him we won’t know. Again, Thursday will tell me more."
