Arnautovic limps off in Cardiff clash West Ham have been left to sweat over the condition of Marko Arnautovic after the forward limped off in their clash against Cardiff City. The Austrian international has been dealing with minor knocks throughout the season but was passed fit to take on the Bluebirds, with Manuel Pellegrini calling on his star man to provide the team with attacking quality. However, Arnautovic’s evening was brought to an abrupt halt just six minutes before half-time as he was forced off with an injury. Twitter: Arnautovic has picked up a knock. Lucas Perez comes on to replace him. #WHUCAR 0-0 (39) https://t.co/MCRWvlAnlE (@WestHamUtd) The experienced forward was visibly clutching his hamstring and looked to be in a state of discomfort as he was helped off the London Stadium pitch to a warm applause from the West Ham faithful.

Manuel Pellegrini is likely to call upon Javier Hernandez to continue leading the line for the Hammers in Arnautovic’s absence.

Arnautovic ruled out until 2019

Arnautovic ruled out until 2019 West Ham United forward Marko Arnautovic has been ruled out until the end of the year after suffering a hamstring injury against Cardiff City on Tuesday night, according to a report on the Evening Standard. The Austrian international was forced off the pitch late in the first half and was replaced by Lucas Perez, who went on to score twice to inspire the Hammers to a 3-1 victory. Arnautovic is expected to be sidelined until after Christmas and will be a big miss for Manuel Pellegrini’s side, especially as the busy festive fixture schedule approaches. The former Stoke City man suffered earlier in the season with a knee injury but continued to play through the pain for club and country. The match was still 0-0 when Arnautovic was withdrawn but the performance of Perez will give Pellegrini hope that the Hammers can cope without their star forward. He has managed to find the back of the net five times in the top flight so far this season and will be looking to recover as quickly as possible.

West Ham will not sell Marko Arnautovic in January. Arnautovic has recently been by Chelsea and Manchester United. Their interest intensified earlier this month when Arnautovic 's brother and agent, Daniel, told reporters that the Austrian "needs to play at a top team.".

Pellegrini confident Arnautovic will return to training next week.
West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini believes Marko Arnautovic will return to full first-team training next week. As quoted by talkSPORT, the Chilean delivered an update on the condition of his squad as they gear up to take on Watford at the London Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Pellegrini had news about the Austrian international’s recovery from a hamstring problem that has kept him out of action since the Hammers’ win against Cardiff towards the beginning of December. He said: “We will need to see his last examination, but I think that next week he will start working with the team.” Arnautovic has been an important player for West Ham this season and has led the line in fine fashion since Pellegrini’s appointment in the summer. The 29-year-old has found the net on five occasions so far this term and has also contributed with two assists. West Ham have been in impressive form of late and will be keen to come away from their upcoming clash against the Hornets with a fifth consecutive top-flight victory.
