There was nothing West Ham could do to stop Alexis Sanchez, who scored a second-half hat-trick, in a 5-1 home loss to Arsenal.
The pressure on manager Slaven Bilic will only continue to grow as the Hammers' winless streak extended to five Premier League matches—the club hasn't won since October 22 against Sunderland—to keep them just one point from dropping into the bottom three. James Collins left the match early in the first half while Cheikhou Kouyate and Michail Antonio both missed out due to injury, but the only positive note West Ham can take from the drubbing came in the return of Andy Carroll, who headed in the rebound of Dimitri Payet's free-kick off the crossbar in the 83rd minute.The road doesn't get easier for West Ham, who will now face Liverpool next weekend.

West Ham fans still have some waiting to do before seeing the return of forward Andy Carroll this season.

The former Newcastle and Liverpool frontman has struggled mightily to recover from a knee injury. Carroll started for the Hammers in the opening game of the season, but hasn't featured for the side since, suffering a series of setbacks in his recovery. Said manager Slaven Bilic: "Andy is progressing really well and maybe in a couple of weeks he will be able to train with us – it might even be earlier. It looks very good and if he continues to progress then I am expecting to have him back soon."

Police are investigating after West Ham forward Andy Carroll said he was threatened at gunpoint and pursued by two motorists as he drove home from training on Wednesday.

According to reports, armed motorcyclists confronted Carroll at a junction and attempted to rob him as he drove home from training on Wednesday. The 27-year-old sped off and was pursued through the streets but was able to safely return to West Ham’s Rush Green headquarters and seek help from the security staff. "I will treat it as a one off accident that happened. He was probably targeted. I don’t think it was a coincidence," Bilic said. "It was like a chase for 15 or 20 minutes and it was probably planned He was very brave to do what he did, and he came back to the training ground and then it stopped. He is good and OK though, and he acted like a really brave man." Bilic also noted that incident has not halted Carroll's rehab and that the forward is progress well. Bilic believes that if Carroll can maintain his current progress he should be able to rejoin full training on the pitch sometime in the next two weeks.

Andy Carroll has posted an update via Twitter to deny media reports that has suffered a setback in his recovery from a knee ligament injury.

News broke on Tuesday that Carroll would not return until late-October although the 27-year-old was quick to dispel any notion that his rehab was not going as intended: ‘My recovery is going great this was a 6-8 week injury so everything is going to plan!! #NoSetback.’ Call it what you will, but with Carroll unlikely to be back before the international break, his return to action is certainly taking a lot longer than the "4-6 weeks" originally anticipated by the club. On a more positive note, Diafra Sakho is closing in on a comeback after stepping up his fitness. Meanwhile, Andre Ayew is also ahead of schedule but West Ham’s problems do not lie in attack; defensively the Hammers need to address major problems which has seen Slaven Bilic’s side ship 11-goals in three Premier League matches.

An injury ravaged West Ham United side held out to take all three-points in a 1-0 win over ten man Bournemouth at the London Stadium on Sunday.

It’s been a tough seven days for Slaven Bilic, whose squad has been decimated in recent weeks following the loss of key players to injury. After tests confirmed record signing Andre Ayew could miss up-to four months after suffering a serious thigh injury [just 30 minutes into his debut], Bilic also revealed that star man Dimitri Payet had been ruled out of the first home Premier League game having sustained a knock during the warm-up at Stamford Bridge on Monday. Add to that, the loss of Diafra Sakho [back] and Feghouli [hamstring] and the Hammers were already lacking attacking options before news of a knee injury to Andy Carroll. "I’m optimistic it will be only four weeks with Andy. It's nothing major. I’d sign a contract and accept four, six weeks out now," said Bilic.

Andy Carroll played well and scored twice in West Ham's 2-3 loss to Juventus.

West Ham are not at Juventus' caliber and it was apparent today as they weren't quite as good as the italians. Andy Carroll, however, played very well and scored twice. Carroll should be starting for West Ham this season and if he can remain healthy, he will be a solid fantasy choice in the middle to late rounds. With that said, drafting him still carries high risk as Carroll is extremely injury prone.

There are conflicting reports emerging regarding the fitness of West Ham striker Andy Carroll who is said to have picked up a minor groin injury during the draw with the Carolina RailHawks last Wednesday.

Fan website Claret & Hugh claim that the injury-plagued 27-year-old was sent for a scan immediately after the match while Jack Sullivan [son of Co-chairman David Sullivan] confirmed on social media that Carroll would be side-lined for up-to 14 days. However, [another site dedicated to West Ham] say that they have spoken to Carroll while on tour in Austria and state he is injury-free and raring to go: "I talked to AC for a few minutes before the training and he said he isn't injured," Bratislava-based Mutis told KUMB. "After that, he took part in full training with the squad. The only player doing individual [fitness] work was Winston Reid. However he also said that he isn't injured." Carroll did not feature against FC Slovacko on Tuesday although the Hammers do play again tonight.

West Ham have made a €35m bid for Marseille striker Michy Batshuayi.

Batshuayi is one of the more sought after strikers this summer and West Ham have the money now that they've moved to their new stadium. The new home comes with big expectations, and Batshuayi would be a perfect fit striker-hungry West Ham. Andy Carroll would likely be a second stringer if the move went through, while Diafra Sakho would likely leave.

West Ham are looking into placing one final bid for Lyon forward Alexandre Lacazette.

The Hammers are unlikely to match Lyon's asking price, which is £40m, but it's likely they get somewhat close with how willing they are to spend this summer. If Lacazette comes in, that pretty much confirms Diafra Sakho will be leaving. Andy Carroll played well at the end of the season but cannot be trusted to stay healthy and the Hammers are badly in need of a reliable striker.

Andy Carroll's first start in over three months was a special one, as he scored all three of West Ham United's goals to guide the Hammers to a 3-3 draw with Arsenal.

Quite the inspirational team selection by Slaven Bilic. It appeared in the opening 35 minutes that it simply wouldn't be West Ham's day. Manuel Lanzini had a goal incorrectly ruled offside while Arsenal would take a two goal lead. Carroll cut the deficit in half with a signature header from an Aaron Cresswell on 44 minutes. On the final possession of the half, Mark Noble lifted a ball into the area and Carroll volleyed home superbly after pouncing on a deflection of his initial shot. Just seven minutes into the second half, he put the Hammers ahead with yet another header, this time from a Michail Antonio cross. They could not hold their lead and would settle for a point in an instant classic of a Premier League match.

Andy Carroll will not travel to Blackburn for this weekends’ FA Cup fifth round tie after suffering a fresh injury blow.

Carroll tweaked his groin at Carrow Road last Saturday and Slaven Bilic is not prepared to take any risks with the striker whose career has been blighted by injury. Carroll has played less than two hours of first team football since recovering from the hamstring strain which forced him off at Bournemouth in January, while that followed spells out due to ankle and muscular problems. The full extent of the strain is not yet known. However, even though Nikica Jelavic has left the club, striking options are still plentiful with Enner Valencia, Diafra Sakho and Emmanuel Emenike all close to full fitness.

Andy Carroll suffered another setback last night after the West Ham striker was forced off during the opening exchanges at Bournemouth due to a hamstring problem.

Carroll was making his seventh start of the season and only his second since recovering from a minor groin strain in a campaign blighted by injury and it now looks like the 27-year-old is set for even more time in the treatment room. "It is a really bad situation for us," said Slaven Bilic. "After the Liverpool win I said that he is back, he looked sharp, he looked strong. It is a blow. Hopefully it is not that long, maybe it is going to be a couple of weeks." The Hammers climbed to fifth in the table thanks to a Dimitri Payet masterclass who marked his return from injury by scoring a sublime free-kick and laying on an assist for Enner Valencia. The injury to Carroll could scupper any potential move away for Nikica Jelavic who was rumoured to be leaving during the January window.

Michail Antonio and Andy Carroll each scored for the second match in a row as West Ham dispatched of a dull Liverpool side, 2-0.

After a stretch of three matches where the Hammers could not find the back of the net, the attack is waking up again. In the 10th minute, Enner Valencia delivered a perfect cross to the far post where Antonio met the ball with a leaping header to give West Ham what proved to be the match-winner. They could have added to the lead in the first half but doubled the advantage in the second, when Mark Noble picked out Andy Carroll for another header. Dimitri Payet came on for the final 26 minutes as he returns from injury. However, Manuel Lanzini picked up an injury of his own and had to be removed late on in the first half.

Andy Carroll has been improving his conditioning and is up to playing over an hour of football.

Carroll played more than 60 minutes this past weekend when West Ham faced Tottenham and it could have been more if West Ham were still in the match. The striker has looked a little rusty but is getting back in the swing of things and should be owned in most draft leagues at this point. West Ham face two extremely defensive opponents next, but once they get to Stoke City in mid-December, Carroll will be a good fantasy option.

Andy Carroll scored a late winner to give West Ham the three points over 10-man Chelsea.

The Blues were reduced to 10-man in the 44th minute, when Nemanja Matic was sent off for a second yellow. West Ham then pushed hard in the second half and were eventually rewarded with a goal and a win. Chelsea, on the other hand, once again looked poor and Jose Mourinho was sent off at halftime for having words with the referee in the tunnel. There is crisis at Chelsea now, as they find themselves with only 11 points in 10 matches, while West Ham are in second place with 20 points.
