West Ham United chairman David Gold confirmed late on Monday night that Cheikhou Kouyate could be sidelined for around six weeks after a scan confirmed the defensive midfielder suffered a muscular tear during Saturday’s win over Liverpool.
Kouyate pulled up during the game with a slight grimace and appeared to be in pain but the West Ham player quickly allayed fears saying he was "ok, I’m fine [to continue]" and completed the full 90 minutes. Post-match the club confirmed Cheikhou would be sent for a [precautionary] scan which revealed the adductor tear was much worse than anyone had considered. However having amassed quality over the summer Sam Allardyce now has the strength and depth within his Hammers squad to draft in a number of worthy replacements - Matthew Jarvis ready to return following a thigh problem, goal scoring substitute Amalfitano is waiting in the wings and loanee Alex Song nearing full fitness.
