West Ham United are set to take on Burnley tomorrow evening.
Carroll has missed much of the season with injury, but he is edging back to full fitness now.
The England international striker has come off the substitutes’ bench in West Ham’s two most recent fixtures - against Arsenal and Liverpool.
Carroll scored West Ham’s only goal against Arsenal, and he also made a positive impact against Anfield last weekend.
It now seems that Bilic is contemplating whether or not to bring the 27-year-old back into his line-up, as he searches for a way to get West Ham’s season back on track.
SB: "We will make a decision on @AndyTCarroll tomorrow whether he starts the game or makes an impact as a substitute. He is a key player.— West Ham United (@WestHamUtd) December 13, 2016
West Ham are currently in 17th place in the Premier League table, and they sit just one point above the drop zone.
The pressure is on the Hammers to beat a Burnley side who have struggled on their travels this season.
If West Ham can pick the three points against Sean Dyche’s side, they could move up as high as 15th in the top flight standings.
