West Ham striker Andy Carroll is expected to be fit for Monday Night Football’s meeting with Huddersfield.

The former England international has been struggling with a groin strain which has kept him out of action since April.

It’s a crucial game for the Hammers, particularly for Slaven Bilic who has come under fire for West Ham’s dire start to the season.

The Hammers have lost all three of their opening league game, albeit away from home, and are currently rooted to the foot of the Premier League table.

Should they dare lose to the Terries, Bilic could be given his marching orders.

Carroll is now expected to return to the bench, but his presence could be just what the Hammers need. When on song the ex-Liverpool man can be lethal and he poses a threat to any team.

The clubs head of medical services, Gary Lewin confirmed that 28 year-old striker Carroll will return to action and said, “He has been training for just over two weeks and with the international break it will be even more by the time we get to Huddersfield, so he will be ready to start playing.
