West Ham defender Daniel Potts will remain in hospital on Thursday for further tests after suffering a head injury during Wednesday night's 5-1 Barclays Premier League defeat at Arsenal, the Hammers confirmed this morning.

The 18-year-old, who had a loan spell at Colchester earlier this season, fell to the ground after jumping in a challenge with Gunners defender Bacary Sagna with 18 minutes left. It appeared the youngster, on as a substitute, hit his head on the pitch, and was momentarily knocked out.

Potts received lengthy treatment from medical staff, eventually being taken from the field on a stretcher, in a neck brace, receiving gas and covered in an emergency blanket before being transferred to a nearby hospital for observation.
