West Ham boss Slaven Bilic has confirmed the Hammers are without a number of key players for their FA Cup clash with Blackburn on Sunday.

Andy Carroll, Enner Valencia and Winston Reid are all out along with Diafra Sakho, Joey O’Brien, Sam Byram and James Tomkins.

Diafra Sakho is back in training but is unlikely to be risked, although Manuel Lanzini should travel with the squad.

“Andy Carroll and Enner Valencia are both out but Lanzini is back,” Bilic said.

“Reidy should be alright for Sunderland next Saturday.

“Sakho is back training with us which is good.”

West Ham face Sunderland and Spurs next week so keeping the squad fresh will be key.

Emmanuel Emenike could make his first start for the club in attack with limited options available.
