Andy Carroll looking to end season on scoring note

Andy Carroll is looking to end the Premier League season on a positive note as he wants to find the back of the net in West Ham’s final two matches against Manchester United and Everton.

The England international has endured a stop-start season at the London Stadium, as groin and ankle injuries have limited him to just 15 appearances in the Premier League, while he has only been able to score three goals in total across the campaign.

Those strikes were important ones, however, as he netted a brace in the 2-1 victory over West Brom and a late equaliser in last month’s draw with Stoke, goals that ultimately helped steer West Ham to survival.

The 29-year-old, who came on as a substitute during the Hammers’ 2-0 win at Leicester on Saturday, is now aiming to see more minutes on the pitch during the final two matches of the campaign, while he is also hoping to add a few more goals to his tally.

Carroll told the West Ham website: “It would be nice to have some more minutes on the pitch.

Getting 15 or 20 minutes the other day was good, so it would be nice to get out there again in the last two games and get a goal or two.”

First up for the Hammers is Thursday’s home clash with Manchester United and Carroll is priced at 3.10 to score anytime during that contest, while he is available 8.00 to be either the first or last goalscorer.
