Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has warned his side against thinking West Ham will be less of a threat without injured striker Marko Arnautovic.

Hodgson, though, rejected suggestions his side, still missing injured Belgian forward Christian Benteke, lacked a cutting edge in attack.



“So I am exceptionally loathed to say that our task is easier because they are missing a player, I will leave that to (West Ham boss) Manuel (Pellegrini) to decide how that will affect his team.



“West Ham have a very strong squad so if any team is able to cope with injuries, then it is them.” Palace went down 3-1 at rivals Brighton in midweek, when the hosts had to play for an hour with 10 men.

Arnautovic is expected to be out of action for around a month with a thigh muscle injury.

“Our performance on Tuesday didn’t satisfy us, but others have and I am pretty sure the performance on Saturday will satisfy me because I know the players will be desperate to give a good performance.”

“Every team we play, we are aware of the quality and the good players we will come up against, and when a team loses a player to injury or suspension, I never concern myself with that,” Hodgson said.
