Knee trouble keeps Andy Carroll grounded
The West Ham United striker will be sidelined for several weeks after suffering a knee injury, Hammers boss Slaven Bilić revealed on Sunday.
West Ham United striker Andy Carroll will be sidelined for several weeks after suffering a knee injury, Hammers boss Slaven Bilić revealed on Sunday.
Carroll sustained the problem during West Ham's Europa League play-off first leg tie against Astra Giurgiu on Thursday. The injury-plagued 27-year-old is expected to be out of action for four to six weeks, while France playmaker Dimitri Payet was also ruled out of Sunday's Premier League clash with Bournemouth - West Ham's first game at their new home, the London stadium.
“Slaven has confirmed that Andy Carroll faces 'a few weeks' out with a knee problem, while @dimpayet17 has a 'knock' to his leg” a message on the club's official Twitter account read.
Former Liverpool and Newcastle United star Carroll promised to make up for lost time as soon as he returns, tweeting: “Devastated about my recent injured but I'm still the 15-20 goal man!”
Carroll's latest injury adds to a growing casualty list for Bilić, who this week lost club-record signing André Ayew for four months to a thigh injury. Aaron Cresswell, Sofiane Feghouli and Manuel Lanzini are also currently out injured.
