Enner Valencia update

Enner Valencia has sustained a deep laceration of his big toe in a domestic accident
Enner Valencia sustained a deep laceration of his big toe on Tuesday evening in an accident at his home.

The No31 trod on a piece of teacup, which he had dropped, and the resulting wound required emergency hospital treatment to clean and stitch the wound.

The forward was joined at hospital by West Ham United medical staff, who oversaw the surgery required. 

Manager Sam Allardyce said Valencia could miss the weekend Barclays Premier League trip to Arsenal.

"Enner has had an accident at home and has cut his big toe quite severely on a broken cup," said Big Sam. "It has been stitched."

"We're not exactly certain but we think it will be too soon for him be considered for the game at Arsenal on Saturday.

"It was a freak accident at a time when we could have done without it due to our lack of available strikers."

The Ecuador striker has made 30 appearances since joining the Hammers from Mexican side Pachuca in summer 2014, scoring five goals.
