West Ham's forward Marko Arnautovic has been ruled out for up to a month with a hamstring injury sustained in Tuesday's 3-1 win over Cardiff City at the London Stadium.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed Marko Arnautovic will be out injured until the new year.

The five-goal forward suffered a muscle injury late on in the first half of Tuesday night's clash with Cardiff.

Pellegrini said: "Marko will probably be out for around one month. We know how important he is for the team."

Pellegrini also ruled midfielder Jack Wilshere out of Saturday's visit of Crystal Palace due to an ankle injury.

West Ham midfielder Carlos Sanchez requires knee surgery and faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

The Colombia international, a £5million summer signing from Fiorentina, was hurt early on during the 8-0 win over Macclesfield in the Carabao Cup last week.

West Ham feared the worst at the time and striker Marko Arnautovic even held up Sanchez's shirt as he celebrated a goal against Manchester United on Saturday.

And manager Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed the 32-year-old will have to go under the knife once the injury has settled down.

"Carlos had a problem with his knee ligament, maybe he will need a couple of weeks to be able to have surgery but he needs that," said Pellegrini.
