Diame 'back in three weeks'

Momo Diame is reported to have claimed he will be back in action by the end of the year.

The in-form Hammers midfielder was stretchered off towards the end of yesterday's Premier League clash with Liverpool at the Boleyn after going down with what looked to be a serious hamstring injury.

However SkySports claimed this evening that the 25-year-old Senegalese international has told them that he expects to be back in action "within three weeks".

Sam Allardyce, speaking in his post-match press conference last night intimated that the player could be out of action for as long as three months when he suggested that the damage to Diame's hamstring was of the worst possible kind.

"It doesn't take a medical expert to know it's a serious hamstring tear," said the manager. "I'd expect it to be a grade three in medical terms and that could be anything up to eight, ten or 12 weeks again."

But his fears - and those of everyone associated with West Ham United - would appear to have been assuaged tonight.

Do you think the Hammers can qualify for the Champions League next season after their impressive start to the domestic campaign this year? Check out the latest odds at betting.betfair.com.

''Well just when you thought you could predict a football match! The sporting gods do the usual and kick the Hammers in the teeth! Again! 2-1 up and in total control, after another slow start we proceed to totally batter the Scousers into near submission then twang! Diame's hamstring goes and with less than 20mins to go we fall apart and disastrously run out of steam! Having said that Rodgers makes good substitutions and comfortably win the game with two well worked goals. Fair play to them. But we should have really won the game though.

Only good news on a very frustrating afternoon was that Diame injury may not be as bad as it seems. If he is injured he will not be going anywhere during next transfer window!''

''Lets hope he is back sooner rather than later. Tomkins is a top drawer defender, however not by any stretch of imagination a midfielder, Sam please don't keep putting him there!

I am sure some of our squad players are more than capable of taking the role. Time for one of our aspiring youngsters to get a go rather than playing a good player our of position. Now is the beat time to blood them as they are walking into a decent experienced side that aren't under any great pressure. Give someone a go ! Any suggestions?''
