West Ham sacked Slaven Bilic last week with the club languishing in the relegation zone following the 4-1 drubbing at home to Liverpool.

Co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold wasted little time in replacing the Croatian, drafting in David Moyes on a six-month contract just 24 hours later.

The appointment did not go down too well with Hammers fans at first but some of the initial scepticism has subsided with many supporters impressed by Moyes' bullish attitude so far.

The new management team are charged with pushing West Ham away from danger.

And most pundits highlight striker Andy Carroll as crucial to their chances of achieving that.

West Ham fans will hopefully see a big improvement from Carroll, though, as he should be in a good headspace owing to the fact he achieved a career highlight under newly appointed coach Irvine.

During his time at Preston North End, Irvine took a young Carroll on loan from Newcastle United.

He played 11 games for the Lancashire side and during that spell he scored his first ever professional league goal – against Leicester City.

He'll hope to register his 69th league goal when West Ham travel to Watford this Sunday.
