Michail Antonio will reportedly miss four months of action for West Ham United due to a hamstring injury.
The striker picked up the injury during West Ham's 2-0 success over Newport County in the EFL Cup last week and successfully underwent surgery.
Antonio, who features mainly as a winger for West Ham, has encountered problems with his left hamstring over the last five months.
According to the Evening Standard, the 29-year-old is expected to miss up to four months, which means he is unlikely to return until 2020.
The Hammers suffered a 5-0 drubbing by Manchester City on the opening weekend of the 2019-20 campaign but have since responded well by claiming comfortable wins over Watford and Norwich City in the Premier League.
