West Ham boss Slaven Bilic confirms Winston Reid is out of Saturday’s game against Chelsea.
The defender suffered a hip injury last week and missed the game against Crystal Palace and the blow will also keep him out of this weekend’s game against Champions Chelsea.
James Collins is likely to start, although Angelo Ogbonna is also fit after a hamstring injury.
Victor Moses cannot play against his parent club and Enner Valencia is raring to go after being on the bench last week at Selhurst Park and also impressing for the Under-21 side in midweek.
“We are without Victor Moses because he is a Chelsea player, that is a big blow but we knew that,” Bilic said.
“Winston Reid is out, he isn’t going to make it for this game. It is nothing major but he will not play.
“All the others are back, Enner Valencia is back he was on the bench against Palace.
“He could start, we will see.”
West Ham host Chelsea on Saturday but have only won once at home all season, which is something Bilic needs to improve on.
