West Ham are waiting to learn the extent of Diafra Sakho's injury, as the club are left to ponder another striker crisis.

The forward suffered a hamstring issue at Old Trafford on Sunday, having scored a goal in the first minute of the draw against Manchester United.

His absence means manager Slaven Bilic has few options in the final third ahead of their EFL Cup clash against Manchester United on Wednesday, as Andy Carroll and Andre Ayew have missed the majority of the campaign and summer signings Simone Zaza, Jonathan Calleri and Ashley Fletcher all misfiring.

The scan will show us how bad the injury is. We don't know yet but he definitely won't play tomorrow. If it's one week, two weeks, four weeks, I don't know.

It's a big blow for us. He showed against Spurs and against Manchester United what he brings to the team. I can only hope it's not going to be long.

– Slaven Bilic
