West Ham United kicked off their pre-season programme with a 0-0 draw against Austrian side SK Sturm Graz II in Bad Waltersdorf on Monday.
Despite a number of good opportunities to win the match, West Ham were unable to take any of their chances, and the game ended in a stalemate. However, Slaven Bilic will be pleased with his sides his first workout, and more importantly, that all 22 players came through the encounter unscathed. Angelo Ogbonna was given a 45-minute run out, only his second since undergoing knee surgery in January, while captain Mark Noble was also involved having been under the knife to rectify a hernia problem [in May]. Winston Reid [knee], Diafra Sakho [back] and Michail Antonio [hamstring] were not included, although all three are undertaking individual rehabilitation sessions at the training camp. Andy Carroll [hip] has travelled with the squad, but the striker is not ready, and his availability for the season opener in August hangs in balance. Jul 17 - 4:52 PM

West Ham United forward Andy Carroll has been ruled out of Sunday's visit of Liverpool.

The former Reds striker will miss the game with a groin problem, which has forced him to sit out the last three matches. Said manager Slaven Bilic on Friday: "He won't be able to play, he's still feeling his groin. It's nothing major but he will miss the game." The injury will afford Jonathan Calleri another chance to fill in up front alongside Andre Ayew.

Slaven Bilic hopes Andy Carroll will be fit for the final London Stadium derby of the season.

Carroll has missed the last two matches with a groin problem, but has trained individually the last few days and could be ready for Friday's derby encounter with Tottenham. Carroll's potential return could see Bilic draft him into the starting XI at the expense of Jonathan Calleri, with the latter still likely to see action as Diafra Sakho has been ruled out for the rest of the season. Speaking on Carroll's availability, Bilic said: "I hoped he [Carroll] was going to be OK for the Stoke game but he wasn’t so I don’t know. If you ask me in one hour [after training] then we will know, but not now, it is too early."

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has expressed his discontent over Andy Carroll's injury record and said the matter will be discussed at the end of the season.

Carroll has been sidelined countless times since joining West Ham in 2012 and this year has been more of the same: the 28-year-old did not make his second appearance of the season until early December after a long-term knee injury. While he's scored seven goals in 18 league appearances, Carroll is currently out with a groin injury and won't likely start against Tottenham on Friday. Speaking after Saturday's goalless draw at Stoke, Bilic expressed his frustration over Carroll's ongoing injury problems and how his absence has been a factor in the club's struggles. "I don't like to moan but I would be very disappointed if he is not involved in our next game," Bilic said. "It looked at one stage of the season that he was okay. It was no coincidence that in that period we won six of nine, then suddenly we are without him." The Croatian boss added: "We will talk about [his injury record] after the season."

Slaven Bilic has confirmed that Andy Carroll will miss out on Saturday's trip to Stoke City due to a thigh problem.

The England striker was absent from last weekend's draw with Everton after suffering from a recurrence of a thigh problem, and has been unable to recover in time for the trip to the bet365 Stadium. "Unfortunately, Andy Carroll won’t be available for this game," Bilic added. "I was expecting him to be back for this Stoke game, but he’s not, so he should be for the next game against Spurs. He should be OK." Jonathan Calleri and Diafra Sakho will be in contention to replace Carroll in the starting XI. Meanwhile, Bilic confirmed that Mark Noble will go straight back into the side after missing two matches through suspension.

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has confirmed on Twitter that Andy Carroll should be available for Saturday’s game at Stoke City.

The return of Carroll will be a massive boost for Slaven Bilic's side ahead of the trip to the bet365 Stadium, as the Hammers have won just one of their last five matches without the 28-year-old this season. Carroll was unable to play in Saturday's 0-0 draw with Everton, which saw Jonathan Calleri make his first Premier League start, but should return to starting XI against the Potters. Carroll, who missed the 1-1 draw with Stoke City earlier this season, has scored five goals over the course of his last 10 starts.

West Ham United will host Everton on Saturday without injury-prone, lead striker Andy Carroll.

While manager Slaven Bilic revealed that Carroll should be fit for next Saturday's trip to Stoke City, the problem will force him to miss this weekend's home clash with the Toffees. The absence of the club's leading scorer has opened the door for Diafra Sakho, who missed last Saturday's 2-2 draw at Sunderland amid rumors of a row with Bilic, to get the nod up front. "He [Sakho] had a little injury last weekend so he wasn’t available against Sunderland but there was no row with him," said Bilic. "We will see now in training if he will be ready for Saturday’s match." Meanwhile, vital center-back Winston Reid could return but captain Mark Noble and right-back Sam Byram will be unavailable through suspension.

Andy Carroll should be okay after he was withdrawn as a precaution on Wednesday night.

Speaking ahead of his sides crunch clash with Swansea City, Slaven Bilic revealed Carroll had complained of discomfort in his groin during half-time at the Emirates. Although he was cleared to continue by the medical department "I decided to change him." The injury-plagued striker has a good chance of featuring this weekend as "he was okay" when checked the following morning. Michail Antonio is also expected to play some part after he was withdrawn due to illness: "He started to feel sick around lunch time yesterday. He's at home now, but is feeling much better." However, with several attacking options sitting on the bench - Robert Snodgrass, Sofiane Feghouli, Jonathan Calleri and Diafra Sakho – the Hammers boss will not take any unnecessary risks. Arthur Masuaku is set to start at left-back with Aaron Cresswell still sidelined.

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."

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.
