Matt Taylor: Playing despite fractured jaw

The 31-year-old suffered the injury after receiving a boot in the face from Stoke's Peter Crouch earlier this month but still played against Chelsea the following week.

Taylor admits the injury is still causing him problems but insists he is happy to play on through the pain.

"I have a small fracture in my jaw and it is a bit sore now," said Taylor, quoted in the Daily Express.

"But it is just one of those things that will heal and I was given the choice whether I was happy to continue playing with it and I was."

The former Portsmouth man has played 21 Premier League games for the Hammers this season, scoring one goal.

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
