Arnie out until 2019

Marko Arnautovic has been ruled out until the new year after picking up a hamstring against Cardiff last night.

The Austrian international will miss the entire Xmas period after being disgnosed with a hamstring injury that will keep him sidelined until the New Year.

The news was confirmed on Thursday lunchtime by Manuel Pellegrini, who admitted that Arnautovic's loss was another huge blow.

"We know how important Marko is for our team," said Pellegrini. "We have too many players injured in a month that we have to play seven games and then in January, six more games.

"But I always have the same answer - we have a squad and it is a chance for another player to demonstrate why they are here."

Earlier the club's leading goalscorer thanked his Instagram followers for their support since Tuesday night. "Lets go - I will do everything to be back for my team West Ham," he wrote in one message.

"Thank you so much for all your messages. I will be out for a while but will do everything to come back strong and quick".
