Valencia (toe) will not play Saturday against Sunderland, manager Sam Allardyce confirmed Thursday.

Valencia is sidelined after cutting his foot in an accident at home, and it came at a terrible time for West Ham, who are without Andy Carroll for the rest of the year because of a knee injury. Diafra Sakho will start up front, with the potential to be joined by Carlton Cole or Nene.

Valencia is likely to miss Saturday's match against Arsenal after cutting his toe on a broken tea cup at his home Tuesday. Valencia was taken to the hospital to address the wound, and manager Sam Allardyce said the accident will likely result in the striker missing at least one match. "Enner has had an accident at home and has cut his big toe quite severely on a broken cup," Allardyce said. "It has been stitched. We're not exactly certain but we think it will be too soon for him to be considered for the game at Arsenal on Saturday. It was a freak accident at a time when we could have done without it due to our lack of available strikers."

The Hammers are already without Andy Carroll for the rest of the season because of a knee injury, while Carlton Cole is sidelined with a Grade 2 hamstring injury, which could force Allardyce to use a single striker (Diafra Sakho) against Arsenal.

Valencia is starting Wednesday at Southampton.

Valencia will get another start with Diafra Sakho, as Andy Carroll is relegated to the bench with an ankle injury. However, Saints have been excellent at home this season, making Valencia a tough play in daily formats.

Valencia is in the starting XI for Saturday's match against Liverpool at Anfield.

Diafra Sakho returned to score in last weekend's FA Cup match, but he is left out of the squad Saturday and Valencia will continue to start in his place next to Andy Carroll.

Valencia was the man of the match Sunday, assisting on West Hamís first two goals in their 3-0 victory over Hull City.

It was the most comfortable Valencia has looked in the claret and blue. He added four shots (two on target), five crosses, four drawn fouls, two completed dribbles, and a key pass as he flashed creativity both on the wing and tucking inside the formation.

Valencia started in place of the injured Diafra Sakho and managed to register just one shot before being removed in the 70th minute of Saturday's 1-1 draw with Swansea City.

The talented Ecuadorian's momentum from a great World Cup has certainly cooled, and his chemistry with Andy Carroll has yet to appear. With Diafra Sakho's status looking uncertain for the next few matches, Valencia will hope to take advantage of the increased opportunity and turn things around.

Valencia was substituted into Tuesday's match against West Brom in the 65th minute to mark his return to action after missing last weekend's match against Newcastle.

The striker did not start, but his return to play about 25 minutes is good news after he failed to recover quickly enough from international duty to play last weekend.

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce gave his weekly injury update Thursday and did not list Valencia (knock) as being close to playing Saturday against Newcastle. Big Sam specifically noted that Stewart Downing (knee) and Cheik Kouyate (knee) trained Thursday, but that the rest of the injured players, including Valencia, "have got a chance but it's a slimmer chance than we expected," to face Newcastle.

The specifics of Valencia's injury is still cloudy, but what we do know is that he's been unable to play sine coming off in the 74th minute of West Ham's Premier League match against Aston Villa on Nov. 8. If he is unable to play against Newcastle, Andy Carroll will start up front again, with Diafra Sakho also a big injury doubt. Valencia is in danger of missing a number of matches, as West Ham will play in three times by next Sunday.
