Multiple reports claim that Marko Arnautovic could be out for several weeks with a hamstring injury.

West Ham’s striker played the full 90 minutes in their 1-1 draw with Bournemouth last weekend but scans appear to show the Austrian international could spend over three weeks out, according to the London Evening Standard.

The Hammers are already without strikers Andy Carroll and Michail Antonio, plus attacking midfielder Manuel Lanzini who came off against Bournemouth with a hamstring injury and will be out for several weeks.

David Moyes now has to rely heavily on Javier Hernandez, Diafra Sakho and Andre Ayew, all of whom have been linked with moves away.

West Ham face Crystal Palace, Brighton and Watford in their next three Premier League games, as well as facing Wigan in the FA Cup this weekend.

Arnautovic has been flying in recent weeks, with four goals and three assists in his last four appearances in the PL. Lanzini scored twice in the recent win at Huddersfield and the duo have been a main reason why West Ham have climbed to 11th place in the table with just one defeat in their last nine PL games.
