London - West Ham United defender Angelo Ogbonna will be out for three weeks after injuring his hamstring in Monday's 2-0 win over Newcastle United, the club said.
Ogbonna, who joined West Ham from Juventus during the summer transfer window and has since started all five Premier League games, withdrew just before halftime against Newcastle.
"Angelo underwent a scan on his injured left leg on Wednesday and we have received the results. We hope he will be back in action within three weeks," West Ham's head of medical and sport science Stijn Vandenbroucke told the club website (www.whufc.com).
West Ham next face a trip to Etihad Stadium on Saturday to tackle the league leaders Manchester City.
The match kicks off at 18:30.
