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. Feb 19 - 4:39 PM

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.

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.
