Cheikhou Kouyate will tomorrow have a scan on the injury that saw him play out the Liverpool game in obvious pain.
The brave midfielder refused to depart the action and ensured that – despite being a ‘passenger’ – he continued to cause nuisance value as the Hammers c0mpleted their fine win.
He pulled up – appearing to hold his groin in the 80th minute – and now faces the scan which will reveal the extent of the problem.
One source said: “I think he may be facing an absence.I hope I’m wrong but we will know more tomorrow.
“It was a fantastic win but we picked up some injuries which is why we can never get too carried away in this game.”
