West Ham are at risk of being frozen out in the Premier League but manager Sam Allardyce is trying every trick in the book to get his players out of a relegation battle.
After Wednesday night’s 6-0 mauling by Man City, Hammers players were put through a gruelling session of cryotherapy.
The treatment aids aids recovery by encasing players in liquid nitrogen at temperatures of minus 135C.
The extreme method boosts muscle recovery after exhausting training sessions and triggers the release of endorphins.
It also prevents inflammation and lances pain, and is believed to be up to five times more effective than ice baths.
Wales Rugby were one of the first elite team’s to use the chambers, with star names George North, Leigh Halfpenny and Sam Warburton all taking the plunge.
Allardyce admitted on Wednesday night that he cannot keep losing games otherwise he will lose his job at Upton Park.
Without a win in 10 and having conceded 11 goals in two games, West Ham are in free fall, heading out of the Capital One Cup and sitting second bottom of the Premier League.
Hammers supporters finally turned on the West Ham manager at the Etihad, leaving Allardyce waiting desperately for the return of striker Andy Carroll.
