Injury report: Six players doubtful for Tuesday's West Ham clash

Libor Kozak, Rudy Gestede and Carlos Sanchez all look set to miss Tuesday's game with West Ham.

We face the Hammers at Upton Park, with a 7.45pm kick-off.

Kozak [ankle], Gestede [hamstring] and Sanchez [hamstring] could be absent after failing to recover from their injuries in time.

Ashley Westwood, who was withdrawn at half-time against Man City, is struggling to make the midweek encounter with a calf problem.

Alan Hutton [hamstring] and Kieran Richardson [calf] are also racing to be fit.

Boss Rémi Garde said: "I have a lot of players who won't be fit. I fear that. I will have to check with the doctor.

"I was told earlier that I could bring back either one or two strikers but probably Libor and Rudy won't be fit for West Ham. Carlos neither.

"Ashley is struggling with a pain on the calf. Alan is still struggling a little bit with his hamstring despite the fact I put him on the bench for the Man City match.

"Kieran also has a problem with his calf.

"I will probably have to make changes in the starting line-up."
