West Ham travel to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday to face Manchester City, and their slim chances of getting any result have been dealt huge injury blows.
The duo of Winston Reid and Andy Carroll are set to miss out on the clash, with the former down with a hamstring injury that got him withdrawn late against Everton.
Carroll remains a doubt after a knee problem ruled him out of the 4-nil midweek loss to the Goodison Park outfit.
Missing the 2 influential players will no doubt limit West Ham at both ends of the pitch against a City side that have won all but one of their 14 league games.
Manager David Moyes continues to look forward to his first win having lost 2 and drawn 1 of his 3 games in charge of the Hammers.
Chelsea and Arsenal are next after the Manchester trip, and this is just a bad time for the Scot to be dealing with injuries to key members of the squad.
