Andy Carroll is thrilled to be back in first-team action and hopes to get back on the scoresheet when the Hammers face a big London derby against Tottenham on Wednesday night as per whufc.com.
Carroll returned from a thigh injury and almost made an immediate impact as a second half substitute against Sunderland when he saw his volley cannon back off the bar following a great move involving Mark Noble and Sam Byram.
The West Ham United forward is now looking forward to another big game under the lights against a Tottenham side who are competing to win the title this season.
Carroll said: “It is great to be back in action and out on the pitch again.
“When Sam headed the ball back across goal I thought it was there for me to score but it hit the bar and I wanted it to hit someone and then go in, but unfortunately it didn’t.
“It will be nice to keep the unbeaten run going and keep the momentum. That is what everyone is looking forward to now.
“We want to be as high as we can in the league and they want to win it, so we know it is going to be a tough game.”
Carroll and Diafra Sakho returning to the squad is a well timed boost for Slaven Bilic’s attacking options considering Michail Antonio may have to revert back to the right back position he played so well in at Blackburn Rovers.
