Lucas Paqueta injury latest

Before facing Bristol City for a second time, the extent of Lucas Paqueta’s injury has been revealed.

Lucas Paqueta will see a specialist for further assessment on a calf injury that will keep the West Ham midfielder out for four weeks, according to reports.

Jarrod Bowen was also injured vs Bristol City and while his injury is not thought to be as serious, it does mean West Ham are currently without their main attacking midfield three and Mohamed Kudus is currently at the AFCON.

Paqueta is not expected to play again this month and it is unclear when Bowen, who has scored 14 goals this season, will be back.

After their FA Cup replay, West Ham travel to Sheffield United for a Premier League clash on January 21.
