Pedro Obiang was ruled out for the rest of the season and so does influential  Michail Antonio and Winston Reid are set to miss the next month.

Slaven Bilic has been rocked by the news that Obiang will miss the rest of the campaign after he was carried off on a stretcher with an ankle injury during the 3-2 home defeat against Leicester on Saturday.

Obiang has been one of the star performers for the east London club this season and will be badly missed at the heart of the Hammers midfielder.

There was more bad news for Bilic after he learned that England star Antonio is set to miss the next three to four weeks with a hamstring injury.

Antonio was forced to pull out of the England squad for the double-header against Germany and Lithuania.

The talented forward managed to play the full 90 minutes against Leicester, but he felt his hamstring towards the end of the game and results have now shown the severity of the problem.

Reid is also set to face a lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering a hip problem.

The New Zealand international will have a scan on Monday and is expected to be ruled out between four to six weeks

Jack Sullivan, son of co-owner David Sullivan, tweeted: 'Obiang is out for the rest of the season

'Antonio 3-4 weeks Hamstring, but as he's a superb athlete we hope it might be sooner.

'Reid scan later this week, but at least 4-6 weeks and might be longer

'Sorry about the very bad news!'

The news will come as a major blow to Bilic who is looking to secure their Premier League status following three consecutive defeats.

The Hammers face crucial games against Hull, Arsenal and Swansea at the start of April and Bilic’s squad will now be down to the bare bones.
