West Ham boss Allardyce explains mystery behind stitches

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce has explained the mystery behind his stitches.

Big Sam, 58, is nursing four stitches in his nut and will be sporting a black eye when he leads out the Hammers at Liverpool tomorrow.

He arrived for a Press conference yesterday with a plaster over his right eye after slipping over in a 'kitchen accident'.

The former Bolton defender hopes the bruises will help put the frighteners on Liverpool.

But he admitted: "I recommend not having a marble worktop. I'd say it won hands down."
