West Ham striker Enner Valencia has explained how he ended up in hospital after a broken cup lacerated his foot.
The Ecuadorian international missed three weeks of action due to the incident, but is expected to be back for this weekend's game with Leicester City.
“Basically, what happened is that about one or two o’clock in the afternoon, a cup that was on the toilet where I kept the toothbrushes and toothpaste fell on the ground and broke,” Valencia told West Ham's official website.
“I picked up the pieces and I didn’t realise I had missed a piece. Then, in the middle of the night I went to the toilet bare-footed and half-asleep and stepped right on it."
Sam Allardyce says vice-chairman Karen Brady was wrong to suggest West Ham have been under-performing in recent weeks after the Hammers beat Sunderland 1-0.
With Allardyce's West Ham future still very up in the air heading into this evening's Premier League at Upton Park, Brady said:
"The fact is that West Ham are underachieving and it is Sam Allardyce's task to identify the reason and rectify it. He would wish it no other way."
But Allardyce does not agree, explaining to Sky Sports this evening:
She's wrong. She's wrong in what she's saying. Under-performing? No. Should we have got more results than we have? Yes.

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce has dismissed reports linking him with the Sunderland job as "pure speculation".
The 60-year-old emerged as an early favourite to be appointed at the Stadium of Light in the summer after the struggling Black Cats sacked Gus Poyet and installed Dick Advocaat on a short-term deal until the end of the season.
"Pure speculation," Allardyce replied when asked about reports linking him with a summer move to Sunderland.
"I'm West Ham manager and I'm contracted to West Ham and don't expect anything other than somewhere along the line we'll be talking about a contract here."
When asked if he saw himself at West Ham next year, he said: "If that contract is right, yes."
