West Ham are counting the cost of their FA Cup win over Liverpool with several players nursing knocks ahead of their trip to Carrow Road.

The Hammers lost three players during their 2-1 win over the Reds with three more struggling at the end of a gruelling tie.

Winston Reid and Joey O'Brien pulled up injured, Cheikhou Kouyate took a whack on the head, Enner Valencia would surely have gone off had all the substitutes not already been used, while Michail Antonio and Andy Carroll also appeared to pick up knocks.

With James Tomkins, Manuel Lanzini and Diafra Sakho already sidelined, manager Slaven Bilic could be thin on numbers ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League trip to Norwich.

'Unfortunately we had to pay the price with a few of them and we can only hope they won't be out for long,' said Bilic.

'Cheikhou felt a little uncoordinated but hopefully he will be okay. Enner looks like a bruise. Joey hadn't played for long time so we hope it's just tightness, but with Reid it doesn't look good to me.'
