Andy Carroll is set to be fined by West Ham after he was sent off following successive booking in as many minutes in the 1-1 draw at Burnley on Saturday.
The striker picked up two bookings inside 99 seconds at Turf Moor, both for leaping and leading with his elbows on center-backs James Tarkowksi and Ben Mee, forcing the Hammers to play with ten men for most of the match. Carroll will be docked a five-figure fine by West Ham, as it is club policy to fine players who are sent off, and miss next weekend's match against Brighton & Hove Albion. Javier Hernandez will lead the line against Brighton, with Diafra Sakho the likely option off the bench. However, Carroll is lucky to have avoid a longer ban, especially considering he could have been issued a straight red for his second booking. "For a player of Andy’s experience and everything, basically you can’t do that," said manager Slaven Bilic after the match. "The first one can happen but the second one cannot happen, especially when you play away, then you are asking for trouble and it was just an unbelievably bad decision to even go there."
