No Arnie injury, says Bilic

Marko Arnautovic is unlikely to be sidelined for any length of time despite limping off during the second half of today's 3-0 defeat by Manchester City.

Speaking after the match, which was staged in Reykjavik, Bilic confirmed that the Austrian international is unlikely to feel any lasting effects - and should therefore be available for the opening game of the new Premier League campaign against Manchester United as week from now.

"It's not bad," he said post-match, whilst addressing the media. "It was just cramp. It's good because everybody got game time and nobody new got injured.

"It was our last pre-season test and if we want to match the big clubs like them, then we need a full squad and to be on top of our game."

Arnautovic was replace by Robert Snodgrass midway through the second half of the game after pulling up short. West Ham were 2-0 down at the time.
