WEST HAM suffered a double blow on Saturday when both Matthew Upson and Valon Behrami limped away from the clash with Liverpool before the game had even reached the half hour mark.

But it seems that the diagnoses for both players is not as bad as many supporters had feared, although both missed last night's Carling Cup defeat against Bolton Wanderers.

"It shouldn't be too bad," revealed Gianfranco Zola following the 3-2 defeat by Liverpool.

"For Upson, the muscle got very tight, so he had to come off before he broke it.

"Regarding Valon Behrami, because he has been working a lot in the last few weeks, he had a problem with a sciatic nerve, but it shouldn't be too bad as well."

Both are expected to make the trip to Eastlands next Monday for the clash with Manchester City.
