As he missed another game from the sidelines yesterday - his fourth in a row following his positive Covid-19 diagnosis - his side served up the best treatment.
West Ham celebrated a stunning 3-0 win at Leicester City in the Premier League today, ending the Foxes' flawless start after three straight wins thanks to goals from Michail Antonio, Pablo Fornals and Jarrod Bowen.
In his third competitive game since returning from a two-year lay-off, the centre-back was substituted in the 55th minute of the matchweek four fixture after appearing to have picked up an injury.
Leicester City fell to their first Premier League defeat of the season after a rampant West Ham United comfortably dispatched of the Foxes to secure back-to-back wins.
"I'm feeling generally fine but I have had some mild symptoms so we are taking it day by day and following the advice of the medical experts".
"I think (David Moyes) speaks to Alan (Irvine) on the phone".
Antonio headed West Ham into a 14th-minute lead as he rose at the far post to meet a long Aaron Cresswell cross and steer the ball into the opposite corner.
Michail Antonio found the opener in the East Midlands after 14 minutes where he was able to head home after some good work from a free-kick before Pablo Fornals doubled the scoreline for the Hammers just after the half-hour mark with a confident finish at the front post.
Barnes then had a goal ruled out by VAR for a marginal offside at the death.
"I don't get a lot of headers, but this one, it came so perfectly to me, I had to put it in", a beaming Saka, who received his first call-up to the senior England squad earlier in the week, said. "It would be very hard for us to look back at that game and pick too many faults, so we're absolutely delighted with the way the team played from start to finish".
