Fresh injury blows for West Ham after Cup defeat

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce suffered more injury blows during their Capital One Cup defeat to Manchester City.

Andy Carroll's return to the starting line-up was the good news but Joe Cole limped off shortly after half-time and Mohamed Diame left the field on a stretcher late on.

Allardyce said on Sky Sports 1: "The real killer, even though Andy's come through okay, is the injury to first Joe Cole - which is a groin that shouldn't be too long - but Mo Diame looks very serious.

"On top of what we've already got, it's another blow and what looks a serious injury."
