Sakho suffers injury

LONDON: West Ham striker Diafra Sakho will be sidelined for at least two months with a thigh injury, manager Slaven Bilic has said. The Senegal international sustained the injury as he attempted to shoot during the second half of the 1-1 draw with West Brom on Sunday. The London side are awaiting the results of a scan to determine the full extent of the injury. The injury to Sakho, who has hit the net five times this season, is the latest blow to hit Bilic’s attacking players after Dimitri Payet and Enner Valencia were sidelined with ankle problems. Andy Carroll, only recently back to fitness after six months out following ankle surgery, is set to lead the attack against Manchester United on Saturday.
