West Ham boss Slaven Bilic has confirmed that they are expecting the scan results of their Nigerian star Victor Moses who may be out for three to six weeks with an hamstring injury.
Moses is the latest Hammers player to end up on the treatment table after he limped off just shy of half-time in Saturday’s goalless draw with Manchester United.
The 24 year old joins three other on the injury list as Bilic’s problems continue to mount.
Bilic admitted it is too early to know the full extent of the injury but hopes he can have the Nigeria international available for the next league outing against Stoke on Saturday.
Bilic said: “It’s still too early (to tell with Moses), but it doesn’t look good again. It’s a hamstring – he felt it and we had to take him off.
“It’s a big blow for us, but we have to stay positive. Some of the players may have a chance. We hope he is back for the Stoke game. If not Stoke, then Swansea.”
“We have to wait for a scan but it doesn’t look good. It’s not like cramp. I don’t know if it’s three, four, five or six weeks.”
Meanwhile West Ham co-chairman David Gold wrote on Twitter that he is waiting for the scan result on Moses.
“I’m optimistic that Lanzini will be available for Stoke but we must wait till Tuesday for the scan on Victor.”
