McCartney picked up a hamstring injury last Monday against Sunderland and is likely to miss Sunday's match against Liverpool, West Ham's official site reports. Manager Sam Allardyce said "It's probably caused by a bit of fatigue and the fact that he played three games in a short space of time, so it looks as though he'll miss out on Sunday."

McCartney is a standard starter in the back four, but missing out on Liverpool likely helps his fantasy chances more than hurts them, given the Reds' lethal attack.
