With their top-flight status assured, West Ham confirm Cheikhou Kouyate will miss the clubs remaining two matches after revealing the midfielder needs surgery to remedy a long-standing wrist injury.
The versatile 27-year-old has spent most of the campaign wearing a protective cast on his right wrist, but following Friday night’s 1-0 win over Tottenham at the London Stadium, a decision has now been taken to go under the knife. Kouyate has performed admirably, playing in a number of positions – centre-back, central midfield and right-back – as Slaven Bilic looked to plug gaps as injuries and suspensions stretched the Hammers squad at various points throughout the season. Kouyate joins Angelo Ogbonna, Gokhan Tore, Pedro Obiang, Diafra Sakho and Michail Antonio on the sidelines but Bilic is hoping Andy Carroll [groin] and Arthur Masuaku [foot] can still play a part during the season run-in.
