Hammers blow as Payet looks set to miss three months

Date published: Monday 9th November 2015 5:13

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.

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.”
