Manuel Lanzini is among eight West Ham United players to miss out at Wigan Athletic

West Ham are set to fine Arthur Masuaku following his sending off for spitting in their FA Cup fourth-round defeat to Wigan Athletic.

The FA's website published an updated suspension list on Monday with Masuaku scheduled to be out of action until March 10.

Masuaku apologised for his actions in a statement released on Sunday, admitting it was a "totally unacceptable" reaction that was "out of character".

The attack was claimed by the Taliban, a week after they claimed a deadly attack on the city's Intercontinental Hotel . Eyewitnesses say that buildings hundreds of meters away were shaken by the force of the explosion.

Hammers boss David Moyes labelled the action "despicable" and agreed with the referee's decision to send him off.

'He will deserve everything he gets and he will get something off us as well, ' said the Scot. So it was the players' reaction that got him sent off.

"There might be a few holding out until the last minute but ultimately I don't think there's loads of players hanging out there which might come about in the last minute". "I've not seen it from him. If someone comes up we will look at it but as far as I am concerned, no-one is going", Moyes said, before adding that an offer from an unnamed club below West Ham's valuation for Ayew had arrived. He will get something [a punishment] off us.

Masuaku now becomes the second player this month to be handed a six-game ban for spitting at an opponent, with Leeds United forward Samu Saiz slapped with the same punishment in early January. "I've enjoyed him so I'd have to say it is out of character".

West Ham's first match without the defender is on Tuesday night as they host Crystal Palace in a bid to increase their four point gap on the relegation places.
