Andy Carroll

Andy Carroll scored a hat-trick for West Ham United against Arsenal in the Premier League at the weekend.

West Ham United co-chairman David Sullivan has written on the club’s official website that he was impressed with the performance of Andy Carroll against Arsenal at the weekend.

Carroll scored a stunning hat-trick for West Ham in their 3-3 draw with Arsenal at the Boleyn Ground in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Sullivan has spoken highly of the 27-year-old, and has pointed out a remarkable stat from the match against the Gunners - the striker had 10 attempts on goal.

“I was delighted to see Andy Carroll score a hat-trick and he once again showed the quality he can bring to the team,” Sullivan wrote on West Ham’s official website.

“He was unstoppable at times and had ten attempts on goal during the game which was fantastic to see. We all hope he can continue this impressive form until the end of the season and stay among the goals as he is a major threat to any team.”

Carroll was truly sensational against Arsenal and tore the Gunners’ defence to pieces. The way the former Newcastle United and Liverpool striker took his goals was superb.

The England international took 10 shots, had a pass accuracy of 62%, won 20% of his tackles and 42% of his headers, and made two clearances.

The fact that the Englishman had 10 shots shows how keen he was to add to his goal-tally. It also highlights just how tough it was for the Arsenal defence to play against Carroll.
