Andre Ayew returns from injury to play against Chelsea

Black Stars vice-captain Andre Ayew returned from injury to play for his West Ham United team in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night.

The player got injured in his Premier League debut game for West Ham United against Chelsea and has since not featured for the club following his record transfer move from Swansea City.

The Ghana international returned to full training at West Ham United earlier this week and was tipped to make an appearance soon.

Ironically, Andre Ayew’s first game back from injury was against Chelsea, the club he got injured playing against.

The former Olympique Marseille player replaced Manuel Lanzini in the 78th minute in the English League Cup game.

Ayew and his teammates won the game to dump Chelsea out of the League Cup.

Cheikhou Kouyate opened the scoring for West Ham in the first half before Edimilson Fernandes doubled the lead after the break.

Gary Cahill pulled one back as the game ended 2-1.
