Angelo Ogbonna, West Ham United's defender, suffered injuries to his knee ligaments in Sunday's Premier League victory against Liverpool.

Ogbonna (33), was injured in the eye during the first half, but later complained about discomfort in his knee.

On Monday, a scan revealed that the Italy centre-back, who is an integral part of the Hammers' league this season, had suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament.

Later this week, he will be seen by a specialist to determine if he requires an operation and what the recovery timeframe is.

After Sunday's 3-2 win against Liverpool at London Stadium, West Ham moved up to third place in the table.

David Moyes' team also reached the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup and qualified for the Europa League knockout stages, with two games left.
