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. Jan 13 - 6:10 AM

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.

Andy Carroll has finally returned to the starting eleven for West Ham after his latest long-term injury issue as he was on the pitch to start the Hammers' League Cup tie with Leicester City on Tuesday.

If West Ham are going to start getting injured forwards back, life might get interesting for both Slaven Bilic and fantasy managers who own West Ham attackers. The Hammers boast a potent midfield that will be hard to rotate out so presumably Diafra Sakho and Andy Carroll will battle it out for playing time with Enner Valencia joining in late next month or early in November.

West Ham United are hopeful Andy Carroll will return to the bench in week five after a prolonged injury absence.

Carroll is back at training and the club is hopeful he can return to the bench against Newcastle in week five. The striker has once again missed a number of games in a row and hasn't been healthy for more than a month for more than two years now. He is only a fantasy option in the deepest of fantasy leagues as we don't expect him to be able to stay on the pitch for more than a few weeks.

Andy Carroll is expected to return to West Ham's matchday squad in week five against Newcastle.

There is an international break after week four which will allow Carroll to train for an extra week before week five. The Hammers striker hasn't been able to remain healthy for a few years now and there is little reason to think he can stay on the pitch for the remainder of the season. He is worth an add in very deep leagues as a high-upside play, but don't rely on him to be your striker for the rest of the season.

West Ham co-chairman David Gold has confirmed that Andy Carroll is working hard and is targeting a return against his former employers – Newcastle – in September [GW5].

Carroll underwent knee surgery back in February – the latest in a long line of problems since joining the Hammers – and is determined to repay some of the $20 million invested in him having started just 24 games in 2 years. West Ham however are looking to bolster their attacking options this season having struggled through with Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho; Dimitri Payet has arrived from Marseille while the club have been closely linked with Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez. Ricardo Vaz Te and Carlton Cole were released but Mauro Zarate has returned to the club following a rather unsuccessful loan spell at Queens Park Rangers.

Sam Allardyce confirmed during his FA Cup press-conference that Andy Carroll would have a full diagnosis on Friday after a recurrence of his knee injury at Southampton. The initial prognosis suggested between 4-6 weeks, but news broke just hours later confirming the former Newcastle striker would undergo surgery ruling him out for the remainder of the campaign.

This setback – the latest in a long line since his move from Liverpool – will serve as a huge blow for Carroll who had been hoping for an injury-free run-in after spending the first four months of the season sidelined following surgery in the summer to fix and tighten ankle ligaments. Carroll picked up the original problem at Anfield in January but after 10 days he was able to return to the group and train ahead of the trip to St Marys on Wednesday. However his second half introduction didn’t go as planned and after a pretty innocuous challenge Carroll felt his knee again although he did remain on the pitch – already used 3 subs – despite his inability to move freely.

Andy Carroll suffered another setback as the Hammers striker left St Marys’ on crutches last night after a recurrence of his recent knee injury.

Allardyce confirmed post-match that Carroll had been training with the group for the past three days without any reaction but admitted the kick to the back of his knee – which caused the problem - was a concern. The extent of the injury will be known after further tests but West Ham are likely to be without Carroll for at least three weeks "He got fit in two and a half weeks [after Liverpool] but clearly it's going to take longer this time because it's the same injury." However attacking options are in plentiful supply at the Boleyn Ground presently with Diafra Sakho, Enner Valencia and Carlton Cole all available. Big Sam also revealed the club will appeal the sending-off of goalkeeper Adrian believing the player was fouled prior to the handball incident outside of the box.

Andy Carroll is still dealing with an ankle issue and will miss West Ham's clash against Manchester United today.

Carroll has an ankle problem and was a late fitness check today. He wasn't able to be fit for the match, but he is expected to return either in midweek or the match after. Carroll is a threat anytime he's on the pitch but it is hard to trust him in fantasy when he has trouble staying on most of the time. If you have him in season-long leagues, it may be worth trading him when he returns. Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia will lead the line in the meantime.

West Ham United came up against a well-oiled Liverpool side and were never much of a threat as they leave Anfield empty-handed in a 2-0 final.

After an easy 3-0 roasting of Hull in their last league match, the Hammers ran into a buzzsaw today. For the first twenty odd minutes, it was looking rather even between the two sides but Liverpool gradually began bossing the show, scoring twice in the second half to seal the points. It was a particularly woeful day for Carroll though as not only did he fail to find the net on a couple of opportunities, he was booked and he hobbled off for a substitute in the 63rd minute. The Hammers will be happy to enjoy their home environs again next weekend, but they will be tested again when Manchester United pay a visit. Hammer investment is trending downward.

Andy Carroll scored an exquisite goal for West Ham United to give the Hammers the initial advantage but they would settle for a draw on the road after Swansea City leveled the match on a West Ham own goal.

Carroll really showed us something with his goal today. No one will argue his aerial threat or his ability to finish when teed up nicely, but he showed some real tekkers today by controlling the ball in the box, dribbling into a better position to challenge the net, and switching his feet just before striking to catch the Swansea defense off guard. Carroll is surely filled with confidence now. If he can stay fit, we may see a run of form from him that we haven't seen since his days at Newcastle. As for the Hammers as a unit, they looked more interested in protecting their one goal than they did adding to it. The result, an own goal by Mark Noble. West Ham head home to host a very beatable Hull side next.

Andy Carroll missed Tuesday nights’ FA Cup draw at Goodison Park after manager Sam Allardyce revealed the striker was injured in training after kicking the ground.

However the former Newcastle and Liverpool hit man was only missing as a precaution and Carroll will be included in the squad that travels to the Liberty this weekend to face Swansea. West Ham have also confirmed that Alex Song will be available for selection after he announced his retirement from international football – the on loan midfielder will not take part in the upcoming African Cup of Nations tournament. But it wasn't all news news for the Hammers' as Diafra Sakho – the clubs leading scorer will miss out for Senegal because of a back problem – it is unknown at this point how long the player will be sidelined.

Fantasy managers should keep the expectations for Andy Carroll rather low for the time being.

Carroll has played well in the past few matches but has to face Chelsea and Arsenal in his next two matches. That is no easy task even for an in form striker and Carroll is still regaining his form after being out for so long. The Hammers' schedule eases up after that and Carroll could be a great buy early in the New Year.
