Carroll ready for Hammers start

27th December 2018, 10:34 by Alex Jack

Andy Carroll could make a first start in nearly a year as West Ham prepare to take on Southampton on Thursday night.

The former England striker came off the bench against Watford last time out but was unable to help the Hammers avoid defeat against the Hornets.

Carroll's return from yet another injury is a welcome boost for manager Manuel Pellegrini, who has a host of absentees ahead of the Premier League trip.

Fabian Balbuena is struggling with a knee injury, while Javier Hernandez is also facing a race against time to be fit for the encounter at St Mary's.

Lucas Perez, Marko Arnautovic, Jack Wilshere, Andriy Yarmolenko, Manuel Lanzini, Ryan Fredericks, Carlos Sanchez and Winston Reid are all on the casualty list.
