West Ham striker Andy Carrroll is set to make a return to the team.

The head of medical services for the club Gary Lewin says the forward should feature likely from the bench on Monday night football as the Hammers play Huddersfield.

Coach SlavenBilic should be relieved to hear the news, considering the fitness crises that the club has suffered in the last two seasons. The England international should help the club with its goalscoring problems as he returns.

Bilic is under serious pressure to get wins else risk being sacked. He has expended huge funds in player transfers but the club has performed poorly in the last year and half. The Croatian manager would run out of excuses to give when the team plays their first home game at the London stadium this season. Read more »


West Ham have joined the list of clubs having a difficult start this year, with their first choice striker Andy Carroll sidelined for at least six weeks.

West Ham enjoyed a brilliant season last term, finishing in sixth position, after blowing a chance to move up higher the standings towards the end of the season.

Carroll hasn’t been in top form for years, but scoring crucial goals made the Hammers retain him this long. Since the 2010/2011 season, Carroll hasn’t scored more than single digits for West Ham. Last campaign, his goals were crucial but still didn’t exceed nine after 27 games played. The 27-year old England international picked up an injury during the 1-1 draw to Romanian champions Astra Giurgiu in the Europa League play off.

“Hopefully, it will be four weeks,” coach Slaven Bilic said trying to console himself.

“It’s nothing major, but it’s very sad for him and us. It’s a big problem for us without him. We’re counting on him big time,” he added. West Ham would have to make a quick signing before the transfer market closes, as their marquee signing of the summer Andre Ayew picked up a four months thigh injury on his first game. The £20 million signing holds the club’s record transfer fee.

Carroll has been in blistering form for the Hammers of late, impressing a number of Premier League observers and prompting calls for an England shot following his hat-trick against Arsenal. There is no denying that the former Newcastle United man would a strong option for England, yet thus far not a single West Ham player has been called up by Roy Hodgson leading up to the summer.

Carroll, speaking to reporters on the matter, says he has not given up hope yet of a call-up while also suggesting both Cresswell and Noble deserve to be given an opportunity to stake a claim for a place.

The centre forward was quoted saying:

“I’ve got the holiday all ready to go but I’ve not paid the deposit yet just in case.

“Maybe me, Mark Noble and Aaron Cresswell deserve to be there. I’ve not given up hope for sure,” he told The Sun reporters.

Carroll, 27, was in the England squad for the European Championships in 2012 and proved to be a real handful for defences, using his height and aerial power to bully defenders. Read more »
