Hamstring woe for Collins


West Ham defender James Collins will miss the next three games due to a hamstring injury, manager Slaven Bilic has revealed.

Collins was injured during the Hammers' memorable 1-0 win over Tottenham on Wednesday night and Bilic could be without up to seven senior defenders for the trip to Everton on Saturday.

Confirming the news, Bilic stated: "It's his hamstring and it's not a couple of days (out).

"We will wait until it settles down and assess it. The first information is that we should be happy if he only misses three games.

"After three games there is an international break, Easter and all that. But it's a big blow for us, the whole season he has been magnificent."

Winston Reid, James Tomkins, Joey O'Brien and Carl Jenkinson will all miss out through injury, while Sam Byram is unavailable because of suspension.

Michail Antonio, who scored the winner for the Hammers against Tottenham, believes the team can cope with the injuries.

We had some injuries to contend with but it shows we have got the squad to do it," he told the club's official website.

"We keep losing players and we are still getting results. Our squad is unreal.

"We lost our attacking players earlier in the season but we were still scoring goals and then we started losing our defenders and I have been playing right-back. We just want to work for each other and it shows on the pitch.

"We believe we can go anywhere and get a result. We will now head to Everton and not go for a point, we will go for the three points and see what happens."
