West Ham sweat on Byram injury


West Ham manager Slaven Bilic says he is waiting to hear how many games Sam Byram will miss with the hamstring injury he sustained against Middlesbrough.

Byram pulled up after seven minutes of the 1-1 draw at the London Stadium and Bilic says the pressure of playing in the Premier League following his January move from Leeds United might have been a factor in the injury.

"He didn't even kick the ball, he stretched," the Croat said.

"Maybe it is psychologically too much pressure. It was a shame that it happened to him when he had his chance. It is his hamstring. He heard a pop. We don't know the length."

In other Hammers' news, Bilic compared Dimitri Payet to Lionel Messi after the French playmaker's wonder goal against Boro.

Payet took the ball on the left touchline, turned Antonio Barragan then beat Marten de Roon Calum Chambers and Ben Gibson before leaving George Friend on the floor as he rolled the ball past goalkeeper Victor Valdes.

"It was a great goal, a brilliant individual goal which brought us back into the game," Bilic continued.

"I don't see many players scoring these type of goals. You see free-kicks, you see volleys, scissor kicks, all different types of goals, but this was like Messi's goals.

"It was a brilliant, brilliant moment of magic. But we can't rely on him doing that every week."
