West Ham United have been dealt an injury blow after midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate suffered a 'freak' knee injury that will force him to miss the start of the season.
The Senegal international suffered the injury during the club's pre-season training camp in Austria and, according to manager Slaven Bilic, will be out of action for around a month. Kouyate was a key man last season and will be greatly missed with the Hammers first three matches of the term all away fixtures, including the opener against Manchester United at Old Trafford. Speaking to Mirror Football on Kouyate's injury, Bilic said: "It is a big shame that Cheikhou got injured in one of our early training sessions and it was out of nothing. He did his knee and he is going to miss the first few games of the season. It was a freak injury and it is a blow for us. He doesn't need surgery and the injury is not a bad one, but he needs rehab now." Jul 19 - 5:46 PM
