West Ham United have confirmed on their official website that six first-team players are injured and won’t face Liverpool on Sunday, while Arthur Masuaku is a doubt for the Premier League clash at the London Stadium.
The Hammers have found some positive late-season form, with Slaven Bilic’s men not conceding a goal in their last three games and beating Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 recently.
West Ham have confirmed that Andy Carroll has not recovered in time to face his former club, while midfield duo Cheikhou Kouyate and Mark Noble have undergone surgeries for niggling injuries.
Diafra Sakho’s season is over while Michail Antonio and Pedro Obiang are still on the sidelines with hamstring and ankle knocks respectively.
Masuaku has won a place in the West Ham side of late and has put in some excellent performances for the Irons, relegating Aaron Cresswell to the bench.
Bilic has stated that although the Irons have concerns, he will field a strong West Ham starting XI for the game against the Reds.
“The good thing is that the players who will start against Liverpool have all played a lot of games this season because of their form, or because of injuries,” he told the club’s official website.
“We will still put out a really good team.”
West Ham will hope to finish in the top half of the Premier League and need positive results for the rest of the campaign.
