Andy Carroll will be in the squad for Saturday's match at Leicester City after being fined for leaving the bench early during the home defeat by Manchester City.
Carroll headed down the tunnel after being left as an unused substitute in the 4-1 defeat by Manchester City at the London Stadium last weekend. Manager David Moyes has since confirmed Carroll has been fined and the striker will be part of his plans for the trip to Leicester City. Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Moyes said: "Andy was in the squad last weekend, that’s why he was on the bench, and he’ll be in the squad this weekend too." While the issue seems to have been resolved, Carroll will likely start from the bench with Marko Arnautovic set to lead the line. As a fantasy asset, Carroll isn't a viable option given his role as a substitute. May 4 - 7:31 AM

West Ham striker Andy Carroll is in hot water after being sent home from training on Monday following an argument with manager David Moyes.

The 29-year-old left his place on the substitutes' bench and went to the dressing room after not being included in a triple substitute during Sunday's home defeat to Manchester City. The West Ham boss said in his post-match interview that he would "deal" with the situation in training on Monday, and yesterday the pair had a heated exchange before Moyes sent Carroll home from the club's Rush Green training ground. The clash has placed further doubt over Carroll's future at the club and, according to reports, could result in Moyes leaving the striker out of the match-day squad when the Hammers travel to Leicester on Saturday.

Substitute Andy Carroll's late equalizer earned West Ham a point in Monday's 1-1 draw against Stoke City.

Stoke City took control of the match in the 78th minute when Peter Crouch was on hand to poke home after Joe Hart fumbled Xherdan Shaqiri's strike from the edge of the area. West Ham had a pair of goals disallowed for offside soon after and manager David Moyes responded by turning to Carroll, who had not featured since January, in the 86th minute. Four minutes later, Carroll made the ultimate impact when he volleyed home an emphatic equalizer from Aaron Cresswell's cross. Chicharito appeared to have won the match when he netted in injury time, but the goal was disallowed for a Carroll handball. The Hammers can breathe a little easier thanks to Carroll, as they now sit seven points clear of the relegation with five matches remaining.

West Ham manager David Moyes said he hopes to have forward Andy Carrol ready to face Stoke City on Monday.

The former Liverpool and Newcastle striker has missed the last three months due to an ankle injury, but returned to training on Monday. With Carroll and Manuel Lanzini returning in the near future, Moyes will have most of his first-choice attackers available for the final run-in: "Andy is back in training. We got him back at the start of the week and we will keep monitoring him. He’s trained for a few days, so we’ll see how he is. He’s obviously not played for eleven weeks, and I’ve got that in my mind as well...The quicker we can get him back the better but is he going to be ready? I’m not sure yet."

Andy Carroll has recovered from an ankle injury and could return to the West Ham squad as soon as next Monday's home match against Stoke City.

In January, reports initially suggested the injury-prone 29-year-old could miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery to repair a hairline fracture of his ankle. However, Carroll returned to first-team training this week and could make an abrupt return to the matchday squad when the Potters visit the London Stadium next week. Carroll faces fierce competition from Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez, but his availability will come as a welcomed boost for manager David Moyes. The target forward has scored two goals in 14 appearances this season.

Andy Carroll may not play again this season after undergoing surgery to repair a hairline fracture in his foot.

The West Ham striker hasn’t played since coming off the bench on January 4 [vs Tottenham] in a five-minute cameo, having picked up the injury against West Brom two days earlier. David Moyes initially suggested that tests [MRI scan] had come back clear sparking rumours of a potential £20 million move to Stamford Bridge, but having missed the next four games, Carroll was sent for a CT scan which revealed the fracture. After seeing a specialist, West Ham were given the option of treating the injury conservatively – wearing a protective boot – or sending Carroll for surgery. He had the operation on Monday and an initial timeline of around three months has been suggested. The news is likely to scupper any chance of Javier Hernandez or Diafra Sakho, who had been linked with moves away, from leaving the London Stadium in January unless Moyes can bring in reinforcements first.

Andy Carroll won't be on the move during the January transfer window following the news that the striker may need an operation to correct his ankle injury.

As expected, West Ham boss David Moyes confirmed in his Evening Standard column that Carroll's injury is serious enough to rule him out for at least the rest of this month. The 29-year-old will be assessed by specialists in the coming days to decide the correct course of action. "We only found out yesterday when he went for a scan," said Moyes. "It showed up that he’s got a problem and we’re not quite sure yet if it’s going to need an operation or not." While the loss of Carroll is a blow for the Hammers, Moyes did reveal Javier Hernandez has recovered from the flu and will be available for Saturday's match against Bournemouth. Elsewhere, Cheikhou Kouyate is back in contention but Winston Reid is still out.

West Ham could be without Andy Carroll for an extended period after the news that his ankle injury is more serious than first believed.

Carroll has missed West Ham's last three matches and was already in doubt for this weekend's match against Bournemouth. However, things went from bad to worse on Thursday. According to reports, the 29-year-old underwent a scan that revealed he will be sidelined for at least a month. West Ham manager David Moyes is expected to provide an update on Carroll's injury on Friday, which if confirmed will likely end the speculation linking him with a move to Chelsea during the transfer window. Expect Marko Arnautovic and Manuel Lanzini to lead the attack this weekend against Bournemouth, while Javier Hernandez and Andre Ayew could feature off the bench.

Andy Carroll could miss out again this weekend as the injury-plagued striker battles to recover from his latest setback.

Carroll has managed just five minutes of competitive football since his two-goal haul on January 02 after suffering an ankle injury. The 29-year-old, who has reportedly piqued the interest of Chelsea, could be the catalyst in a transfer merry-go-round with Michy Batshuayi potentially moving to La Liga side Sevilla. However, David Moyes insists he wants to add bodies to his depleted side, "not lose players from my squad," amid growing speculation of a £20 million bid. "No, at the moment," said the Hammers manager when asked if Carroll has given any indication that he wants to leave the club. "Andy's got an ankle injury which had an injection in it about 10 days ago, so we're hoping that that will settle quite quickly, and he'll be back out training shortly." Wes Ham will be hoping to have Javier Hernandez is back amongst the ranks after he missed the FA Cup win over Shrewsbury because of flu.

West Ham manager David Moyes said Chelsea has yet to make an official move for forward Andy Carroll.

The former Newcastle and Liverpool striker has been linked with a move to Chelsea in recent weeks as the Blues look to bolster their depth at forward, but Moyes confirmed that there is nothing concrete as the club looks to hold onto its No. 1 striker: "They have not made contact with me, so if they have made contact with someone else I don't know about it. At the moment Andy Carroll is one of my squad, I want to add to the squad, not lose players. I know nothing about it. There have been a lot of rumours regarding a loan but as far as I know it has never officially come from Chelsea. I am not keen to lose any players, I am more keen to add to the squad."

Two second-half goals from Andy Carroll earned West Ham a late 2-1 victory over West Brom at the London Stadium.

Trailing on the hour mark, the England international powerfully headed home from Aaron Cresswell's pinpoint cross to bring the Hammers level. West Brom had a chance to retake the lead when substitute Oliver Burke was put through on goal, but Angelo Ogbonna got in a last-gasp tackle to quell the move. With the final whistle just seconds away, Carroll grabbed all three points when he turned in Marko Arnautovic's low cross from a tight angle at the far post after a sharp counter attacking move. The victory moves West Ham a point above the relegation zone, jumping above Stoke City and Southampton into 16th.

Andy Carroll has shaken off a knee problem and will be in contention for Saturday's derby clash with Chelsea after

Earlier this week, the Daily Mail reported the England center forward was expected to miss this weekend's visit from Chelsea as well as the Arsenal clash four days later. However, in his pre-match press conference, manager David Moyes revealed Carroll is fit and available for selection against the Blues. Carroll's availability was part of a double injury boost as Javier Hernandez has also been cleared to return to action after recovering from a hamstring injury. Carroll would appear to have a better chance of starting considering Hernandez hasn't featured since early November, with Michael Antonio the other option up front if the pair is on the bench.

West Ham could reportedly welcome Javier Hernandez back for Saturday's match against Chelsea, but are expected to be without Andy Carroll for a little while longer.

Hernandez handed manager David Moyes a major boost by returning to full first-team training on Wednesday after missing the last four Premier League matches. The Mexico international, however, will need to pass a fitness test ahead of Saturday's clash with another London derby coming up on Wednesday against Arsenal. Meanwhile, Carroll has yet to return to training and will play no part in the derby double-header. Moyes did not provide details regarding the nature of the injury that forced Carroll to miss last weekend's match with Manchester City, although reports say the forward could make his return against Newcastle on December 23. Michail Antonio lead the Hammers attack in GW15 and could do so again if Hernandez is unavailable.

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."

Long-term absentee Andy Carroll is back in the West Ham squad and should make his long-awaited return against Huddersfield Town on Monday.

Speaking to reporters at his pre-match press conference on Friday, West Ham manager Slaven Bilic announced Carroll as fully fit and added he will definitely be included in the matchday squad. "He’s been training for almost four weeks with us and he looks good," said Bilic. The return of the injury-plagued striker is a huge boost for the Hammers with Marko Arnautovic (suspended), Manuel Lanzini (ankle) and Edmilson Fernandez (ankle) all unavailable for the home opener. Fantasy managers, specifically those in draft leagues short on forwards, should therefore give Carroll a look. With the Croatian boss in need of a positive result but short on attacking options, he could alter the formation to incorporate both Carroll and Javier Chicharito. Carroll isn’t a long-term option because of his injury history, but he could be useful while fit (however long that may prove to be).
