David Moyes has confirmed that both Andy Carroll and Javier Hernandez will miss Sunday's trip to the Etihad Stadium.

The new Hammers boss, speaking to the media ahead of the weekend trip to Manchetser City revealed that neither Carroll nor the Mexican international will be fit enough to feature against the league leaders.

"We’ve got a few injured players," confirmed Moyes. "I don’t want to be somebody that talks about injuries but we’ve got a few. Andy Carroll’s not back yet and Chicharito is not back yet. We’ve got a few missing just now; it’s the same at all other clubs.

"It does make the task much more difficult. But if we talk about injuries all the time it will, in some way, be used as an excuse. I don’t want to do that.

"I’d rather stand up with what I’ve got and give the players that are in the team confidence that we believe in them and trust in them.

"We will have some other people that will come into the team. It might not just be this game, it might be other games as well, because we’ve got a few long-term injuries.

"We’re going to go to Manchester City and try and put on a good show and take something from the game. Ultimately, that’s what we have to do."

Hernandez has been out of action since injuring his hamstring in Mexico's 3-3 friendly draw against Belgium on 10 November. Meanwhile Carroll has been out of action since playing a full 90 minutes against Leicester last Friday.
