Slaven Bilic has indicated that Diafra Sakho could be out for one to four weeks but says he will wait for the results of the scan.
Slav told a press conference ahead of Wednesday’s game: “Diafra picked up a hamstring injury and we are waiting to see how bad the injury is. He will definitely not be available for the game on Wednesday. I don’t know now. Is it going to be one week, two weeks, three weeks or four weeks or whatever”
“We will have to wait for the results of the scan to see how many weeks we will be without him. It is a big blow for us because we know what he can give to us and he showed that against Tottenham and Manchester United on Sunday. I can only hope it is not going to be long.
“It is very frustrating, especially for the player who was working so hard to come back and made an impact straight away.
“To be sidelined again is awful for him, it is awful for hime but I am sure this injury will not be like the one that forced him to miss the start of the season.”
