London, England (SportsNetwork.com) - Crystal Palace forward Marouane Chamakh will miss up to three weeks after suffering a hamstring injury in a 1-1 draw against Swansea City.

"We missed Cham's quality on Saturday. We're looking at two to three weeks out for him," Palace manager Tony Pulis said.

The Moroccan striker sat out Saturday's 1-0 Premier League defeat by Southampton. Pulis hoped he would make a quick recovery, but he will sit out this weekend's clash with Sunderland, as well as Premier League matches against Newcastle United and Chelsea.
