West Ham manager Slaven Bilic said all signs are pointing to a return for Andy Carroll on Monday against Chelsea.
The former Liverpool frontman has missed the last two Premier League matches, a pair of draws against Watford and West Brom, due to a groin injury. Prior to succumbing to injury, Carroll had scored three goals in his previous four games. Said Bilic: "Andy trained individually for the last few days and did everything with those medical guys, and then he joined us yesterday. Usually, the press conference is two days before a game, but this time, it’s four days. We still have three training days before the game but it looks good, especially for him. Altogether, it will be a good week of training for him. That should be enough for him to be fit for the game." Mar 2 - 3:02 PM

West Ham United have reportedly turned down three offers for Andy Carroll from Chinese Super League clubs.

Sky Sports is reporting that Tianjin Quanjian, Hebei China Fortune and Shandong Luneng were all serious suitors ahead of Chinese transfer window deadline on Tuesday, but the Hammers have told them Carroll is not for sale. Despite the string of injuries the forward has suffer since joining West Ham permanently from Liverpool for a fee of £17.5m in 2013, it does not come as a surprise the club resisted the lure of the reported lucrative offers. The 28-year-old has been limited to 12 appearances this season but has been the main man when healthy, having scored six goals with four coming in his last for matches. Although currently sidelined with a groin problem, Carroll appears to be winning the race to recovery in time for Monday's clash with Chelsea.

West Ham United boss Slaven Bilic expects Andy Caroll to be fit for next Monday's clash with Chelsea.

Carroll has scored four goals in his last four appearances but missed the last two games with a groin injury. Speaking on Carroll's injury, Bilic was optimistic over the chances of his star striker making fitness ahead of the clash with the league-leaders. "The guys from the medical department have told me he's going to start training Tuesday or Wednesday," Bilic said. "Then hopefully four or five days of training, that is always enough for Andy to shine in the next game. So hopefully he is going to be able to play against Chelsea."

Andy Carroll looks to have lost his battle to be fit for this weekend’s trip to Vicarage Road.

Slaven Bilic revealed during the build-up to game week 25 that the injury plagued 28-year-old had been carrying a niggling groin problem which resulted in him missing out against West Brom at the London Stadium. It was envisioned that Carroll would be ready for a return this weekend, but speaking to talkSPORT radio on Wednesday, the Hammers manager confirmed: "He is in good form. The only thing about him is that now he is a little bit injured and he didn't train for 10 days. That is a big blow for us but, saying that, he is going to be back very soon." His absence is likely to see Antonio lead the West Ham attack, although club-record signing Andre Ayew will come back into contention following his return from the Africa Cup of Nations.

West Ham United are hoping to have Andy Carroll available for their next Premier League match.

Carroll missed out on the 2-2- draw with West Brom but could make his return when the Hammers face Watford on February 26th. Despite the injury, the forward traveled with the West Ham squad to Dubai for their five-day warm weather training camp last week and looks on track ahead of their trip to Vicarage Road. Speaking on Carroll's injury last week, Head of Medical and Sports Scince Stijn Vandenbroucke said: "We got Andy fit enough to face Middlesbrough and then also to face Southampton, but the West Bromwich Albion game came too quick and Andy is now working towards the Watford game." Elsewhere, Vandenbroucke revealed that fellow forward Diafra Sakho started running last week, but will need some time before he is fully recovered from back surgery.

Slaven Bilic is convinced Andy Carroll can earn a recall to the England squad, even though injury denied him the chance to play in front of Gareth Southgate on Saturday.

Gareth Southgate had attended the match at London Stadium to assess Carroll, as the England manager prepares to announce his next squad for games with Germany and Lithuania. Carroll instead missed out because of a groin injury, potentially conjuring fitness concerns for Southgate, despite the 28-year-old having scored four goals in his last four matches. With West Ham knocked out of the FA Cup, Carroll's next chance to push for a call-up won't come until on Feb. 26th against Watford. However, speaking after the 2-2 draw with West Brom, Bilic reaffirmed his belief in the in-form striker. "He has enough time and Gareth also has enough time to come again and watch him," Bilic said. "I want him to get picked for England. It's a great thing for him. It would be a great thing for him and a great thing for the club."

Slaven Bilic confirmed forward Andy Carroll will be a late call for Saturday's home match against West Brom.

Carroll has scored four goals in his last four league games but is dealing with an on-going groin issue, which forced him to make an early exit from the club's 3-1 win against Southampton last week. Speaking on Carroll at Thursday's press conference, Slaven Bilic said: "He [Carroll] felt his groin and we didn't want to take a risk so we will make a decision on Friday on whether he will be available for Saturday. It is not something major because if it was bigger it would rule him out of the game. It is still open and is not a big injury." With Carroll absent from training this week, Slaven Bilic now faces a huge decision: to play his leading forward or not. Should Carroll be held out, it could open the door for Andre Ayew to make his first appearance since returning from the Africa Cup of Nations.

West Ham fans will have their fingers crossed as they await the team news ahead of the weekend match against West Brom.

Despite losing Dimitri Payet, the club has found its form in recent weeks and have Andy Carroll to thank for much of it. The former Liverpool striker has recorded four goals in his last four league matches, despite fighting off a niggling groin problem, one that saw him leave the club's win against Southampton last weekend. Said the club medical staff in a statement: "Andy Carroll came off with an injury at St Mary’s. He had a similar problem in the game at Middlesbrough, but we were able to prepare him for the Manchester City and the Southampton games, where he did brilliantly with limited training. We will now work with Andy to prepare him for Saturday."

Andy Carroll will "hopefully" be okay for the visit of West Bromwich Albion next weekend as the Hammers striker battles with an ongoing groin problem.

The in-form 28-year-old was on the scoresheet again [4 in four appearances], but lasted less than an hour as Slaven Bilic aims to try and protect his injury prone attacker. It comes as no surprise that West Ham’s upturn in fortunes have coincided with Carroll returning to spearhead their attack and with Diafra Sakho [injured] and Andre Ayew away on international duty plus Dimitri Payet returning to Marseille, Bilic needs to handle Carroll in kid gloves. Following Saturdays win, the Croatian offered a little insight on why Carroll had been replaced after 56 minutes: "He felt a little bit of a groin [problem] when we played against Middlesbrough and we didn’t want to take any risks, and today also. We told him at half-time to try and play 10 minutes and he said he can. We didn’t want to take any risks with him. Hopefully he is going to be okay for the next game."

Andy Carroll scored twice and Jonathan Calleri netted in stoppage time as West Ham United moved into 10th with a 3-1 win over Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium on Saturday.

After scoring a stunning scissor-kick goal against Crystal Palace last weekend, Andy Carroll once again was the hero for West Ham. Carroll headed home with conviction on nine minutes and then slammed in a rebound from close range to erase Cristhian Stuani's equalizer just before halftime. While the Hammers added a third through substitute Jonathan Calleri in stoppage time, Slaven Bilic's side dodged a bullet in the 65th-minute when Stuani deflected an Aaron Cresswell clearance off the bar. With Dimitri Payet likely to remain absent while his future at West Ham is sorted out, Carroll could not be hitting form at a better time. The English striker has now scored three goals in his last two appearances, and five goals since returning from injury nine matches ago.

West Ham fans will be relieved to hear the knock that Andy Carroll sustained this week was only whiplash.

Premier League fans may have been subject of whiplash themselves this week while doing a double take to see Carroll's scissor-kick goal against Crystal Palace. West Ham manager Slaven Bilic said the former Liverpool man suffered the injury later on in the match, but has trained as is expected to be available to face Middlesbrough: "Andy has got a bit of a whiplash injury...He has a sore neck so hopefully he’s going to be OK. It was at the end of the game [and not when he scored his scissor kick goal]. He trained on Tuesday and was brilliant in training, but then he reported some neck pain, but hopefully he’s going to be OK."

West Ham got back on track with a dominant showing at the Olympic Stadium in a 3-0 win against Crystal Palace.

Despite all of the noise surrounding the Dimitri Payet transfer saga at West Ham this week, the Hammers looked sharp against the south London visitors. Without Payet, manager Slaven Bilic went with Sofiane Feghouli, who ended up breaking the 0-0 deadlock in the 68th minute after connecting with Michail Antonio. If it wasn't for Andy Carroll's wonder goal in the 79th, all eyes would be on Antonio and his three assists. But Carroll's strike will be on loop for the next week after he spotted a looping cross from Antonio and, with his back toward goal, hit a thunderous bicycle kick over a helpless Wayne Hennessey. Just minutes later, Manuel Lanzini rounded out the scoring with a West Ham third after another assist from Antonio, who was originally a doubt due to illness.

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.
