Diafra Sakho

Hammers striker Diafra Sakho will be out for six weeks after sustaining a thigh injury during Sunday’s draw with Manchester United.

Sakho scored the opener at Old Trafford with just two minutes on the clock, but was withdrawn in the 66th minute through injury.

A scan on Tuesday revealed that the injury will keep him out of contention for up to six weeks.

Everyone at West Ham United wishes him a speedy recovery and quick return to action.
