Marko Arnautovic has been ruled out of the festive fixture programme following a scan which revealed the extent of his hamstring strain.
Speaking during Thursdays pre-match press conference, manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed: "Arnautovic has a muscle injury and he will probably be out for around a month." The news is a lot better than initially feared with some media outlets claiming the Austrian would be absent for between 6-8 weeks but given the number of games from now until his expected return, Arnautovic will still be sidelined for a minimum of five games. Striking responsibilities are likely to fall on Javier Hernandez although Andy Carroll is approaching full fitness following his first appearance of the campaign during the 3-1 win over Cardiff City. "We hope he will now continue playing games. Those few minutes the other day, I think, were very useful for him. He worked today without problem," said the Hammers boss. Lucas Perez is also pushing for regular game-time after scoring from the bench on Tuesday night. Dec 6 - 4:11 PM
