Injuries have been a major problem for West Ham United in recent weeks.
The East London outfit have Andy Carroll, Manuel Lanzini and Marko Arnautovic currently on the treatment table.
Carroll has been in and out of the team all season due to injury problems, and the striker is now facing a further three months out after undergoing surgery.
Lanzini is expected to be on the sidelines for a month with a hamstring problem, while Arnautovic is also suffering with a similar injury.
On Saturday, the Hammers were damaged further when Pedro Obiang was stretchered off just after the half-hour mark after being on the receiving end of a challenge.
At the time, the Hammers were trailing 1-0 to Wigan Athletic in the fourth round of the FA Cup at the DW Stadium.
After Obiang was taken off the field, West Ham fans tweeted their dismay at the latest injury setback.
We have beem timid extremely poor display.Worse thing is Obiang looks like his out for a while..We need to have 11 fit players for the big one on Tuesday #COYI

That looked bad for Obiang… Could this mean Dendoncker is more likely? ? #COYI

Hoping Obiang dodged a bullet there, but I would expect him to miss significant time, if not the rest of the year. ??♂️?
