Moyes leads Carroll plaudits

  Moyes leads Carroll plaudits David Moyes questioned whether any Premier League defenders could deal with Andy Carroll's aerial threat after he fired West Ham to victory over West Brom. Carroll ended nine months without a goal in emphatic fashion with a second-half double at the London Stadium, the second of which came deep into stoppage time.His first, West Ham's equaliser, was a trademark towering header which left Jonny Evans and Kieran Gibbs grounded, and Moyes was jubilant after his striker's return to form."They were top goals," he told Sky Sports.

West Ham have moved out of the relegation zone by scoring a last-gasp winner at the London Stadium. Carroll beat Kieran Gibbs and Jonny Evans in the air to bullet a header beyond the West Brom goalkeeper to equalise.

A sensational last-gasp escape from relegation remains possible for West Brom thanks to Jake Livermore’s stoppage time winner . If other results go in their favour – they need Swansea and Southampton to draw on Tuesday for a start – then victory at Crystal Palace next Sunday could

Andy Carroll struck a stoppage-time winner as West Ham came from behind for the first time this season to beat relegation rivals West Brom 2-1 at the London Stadium.

Carroll brought a nine-month goal drought to an end in emphatic fashion, cancelling out James McClean's deflected opener (30) on 59 minutes before firing the winner deep into time added on.

It was a bitter pill for Alan Pardew to swallow on his return his former employers as the Baggies' winless run in the Premier League stretches to an unenviable 20 games.

The result lifts the Hammers up to 16th in the table, five points clear of West Brom in 19th, who remain firmly in the relegation mire.

James McClean's house 'robbed' during West Brom's defeat to West Ham

  James McClean's house 'robbed' during West Brom's defeat to West Ham James McClean's Wednesday night started perfectly with a stunning goal but ended with the West Brom midfielder losing to West Ham and returning home to find that his house had been broken into. The Ireland star put the Baggies ahead at the London Stadium last night but an Andy Carroll brace - with the second goal coming in the 94th minute - secured the Hammers all three points and kept West Brom 19th in the table.McClean, who was criticised by manager Alan Pardew for his own goal in the 1-1 draw with Arsenal last Sunday, bounced back well last night, but while he was in London with his team, his house was 'robbed'.

With West Ham without a win in three, and West Brom winless in 19, there was an understandable degree of caution from both sides for the opening quarter of this bottom-of-the-table clash.

Salomon Rondon's chipped effort nestled on the roof of the net on 14 minutes and that drew a response from the Hammers as Manuel Lanzini's rasping drive forced Ben Foster into action seven minutes later.

The Baggies had a helping hand against Arsenal as a contentious penalty saw them snatch a point, and fortune was on their side once more as McClean's strike, after some pitiful defending from Winston Reid, deflected off Pedro Obiang and over the hapless Adrian.

West Brom pushed for a second but going behind galvanised the disjointed Hammers as Lanzini's low 39th-minute effort drew another fine stop from Foster, who bravely thwarted Kouyate from converting Carroll's knock-down four minutes later.

Adrian stopped a Jonny Evans toe-poke on the line before the break from which West Ham returned revitalised, Carroll turning Marko Arnautovic's whipped cross over within a minute of the restart.

But Carroll was not to be denied as he hauled the Hammers level with a towering header from Aaron Cresswell's cross shortly before the hour - his first goal since April 1.

And, after Jake Livermore was involved in an altercation with West Ham supporters following his 64th-minute substitution, Carroll capped his return to form by firing Arnautovic's cross home from a narrow angle at the death.

David Moyes: "You can see how important a win that was. They were top goals from Andy. I don't know if there are many centre halves that could have dealt with his leap for the first goal, and I must say the ball in is terrific. You have to give him great credit for the finish for the second."

Alan Pardew: "That's a tough one to take, the two-day turnaround cost us in the end. We just ran out of legs, we couldn't keep going. To concede in that manner is heart-breaking for the players. It was difficult for us, they had more energy than us and it showed."

Man of the Match - Andy Carroll

West Ham look to have escaped with a point after an abject display in front of their own supporters but, having already equalised, Carroll provided the perfect finishing touch.

The Hammers frontman buried a trademark header to end the longest goal drought of his career and, like London buses, his second soon followed as he fired home from a tight angle to snatch the victory.

The pundit

Matt Murray: "Wow, what a game. I thought with so much riding on it down the bottom that West Brom away from home might play on the counter-attack and make it an edgy affair, but right from the start both teams were going for it. West Ham, through Andy Carroll, were calm and clinical at the end then they deserved it."

What's next?

West Ham make the trip to Wembley on Thursday to take on London rivals Tottenham - live on Sky Sports Premier League - before travelling to Shrewsbury in the FA Cup on Sunday. In between those games, West Brom head to Devon for their FA Cup third-round clash with Exeter City.

Nigel Reo-Coker says West Ham 'must not sell' Andy Carroll .
Speaking to Sky Sports, Former Hammers player Nigel Reo-Coker says that West Ham shouldn’t sell Andy Carroll, claiming that it’s vital to keep hold of him in the January transfer window. West London outfit Chelsea are keen on signing the big frontman as the Hammers are happy to sell the former Newcastle man for £20m. However, Reo-Coker, who played for West Ham between July 2007 and May 2011, feels that the striker remains a vital member of the squad for the East London club as they look to remain clear of the relegation zone. “Andy Carroll is a vital player for West Ham, even though they have picked up a few results lately. There’s still a long way to go this season and he’s a player they need to keep right now – for the team, the system and the way they play.” “On his day he can be a handful for even the best defenders in the Premier League and selling him in the January window is not the right thing to do.” “And, despite what you might get for him, you have to remember what position it could leave your team in. Or have they someone in mind who can fit in right now? For West Ham, and where they are right now, Carroll is a player they need to keep in this window.” Carroll is a target for the Blues as Antonio Conte looks to bolster his front line. Michy Batshuayi is wanted by Sevilla but it seems the Italian tactician will only sanction the departure of the Belgian international if he can secure his top striking target, Carroll, in the January transfer window.
