“James Collins is out for a matter of days and Sakho has back pain. He didn’t train since Burnley so he’s out of Friday’s game.

"They [Sakho and Collins] could both be back for the Spurs game."

Sakho has scored just a goal in seven league outings for the Hammers who are placed 15th in the English top-flight log with eight points from eight games.
