West Ham hit by Antonio injury blow
West Ham winger Michail Antonio will miss the rest of the season after suffering a serious hamstring injury.
Antonio was forced off during the first half of West Ham's 1-0 win over fellow strugglers Swansea last weekend.
Hammers boss Slaven Bilic confirmed on Friday that the 26-year-old's injury is significant enough to rule him out for the remainder of the campaign.
Antonio, who had just returned to the side following a similar injury, pulled up moments before half-time and was unable to continue.
He is also a doubt for England's World Cup qualifier against Scotland on June 10 after pulling out of Gareth Southgate's previous squad, for matches against Germany and Lithuania, due to injury.
