West Ham star Dimitri Payet appears set to be out for three months due to an ankle injury.
The playmaker was substituted five minutes into the second half of Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Everton at Upton Park following a heavy challenge from Toffees midfielder James McCarthy shortly before half-time.
Jack Sullivan, son of West Ham co-owner David Sullivan, tweeted on Monday that Payet will be out for three months.
Sadly payet will be out for about 3 months! Huge miss for the team. How the Everton player didn’t get sent off amazes me!! #COYI

Hammers manager Slaven Bilic said after the match on Saturday: “We lost Payet because of a bad tackle. We can only hope that he will be OK and it is not going to be long-term, but we have to wait for the scan.
“I won’t listen to the first opinions, I will wait for the scans.
“I’m optimistic they will be okay for Spurs after the international break – but it doesn’t look good.”
