David Gold responds to Andy Carroll injury speculation

West Ham United will face Sunderland away from home in the Premier League on Saturday.

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has stated on social networking site Twitter that Andy Carroll is available for this weekend’s game.

The Hammers will take on Sunderland away from home at the Stadium of Light in the Premier League on Saturday.

Gold has responded to speculation that England international striker Carroll has picked up yet another injury, claiming that the former Newcastle United and Liverpool man should be available for the match against the Black Cats.

West Ham will head into Saturday’s game on the back of a 2-2 draw with Norwich City at the Boleyn Ground.

The Hammers are third in the Premier League table at the moment with 13 points from seven matches, just three points behind leaders Manchester United.

Slaven Bilic’s side will be favourites to win against Sunderland on Saturday, as the Black Cats are struggling for form and are currently at the foot of the table.
