David Gold hopes to see the best of Andy Carroll this season

Andy Carroll is fit again and is available for selection for West Ham United.

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has written on the club’s official website that he hopes to see the best of striker Andy Carroll this season.

Carroll has recovered from his injuries which have affected his West Ham career so far and is now fully fit.

In the absence of the injured Diafra Sakho, the former Newcastle United and Liverpool striker will have a major role to play for the Hammers in the coming months.

Gold hopes that the 26-year-old England international striker is able to get back to his best and has written on West Ham’s official website: “We must not forget that we have a player in Andy Carroll who became the Club's record signing.

“His injuries are hopefully behind him and he is strong and injury free. He needs first-team action and I hope we get to see the best of him in the coming weeks and months.”

Carroll has scored one goal and created three chances in eight Premier League appearances for West Ham so far this season.

The Englishman has a pass accuracy of 65% and a shot accuracy of 29%, and has won 16 headers, two dribbles and one tackle.

The Hammers are eighth in the Premier League table at the moment with 22 points from 14 matches.
