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. Jan 21 - 1:01 PM

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.

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.
