Andy Carroll will miss the game against Everton as a result of MIS-KICKING the ball.
His latest problem arose in the build up to the Hammers first goal against Sunderland last weekend.
The thigh injury came as a result of the pass in to Andrew Ayew which has now left him on the sidelines for yet another crucial clash.
Hammers boss Slaven Bilic said: “What’s wrong with Andy? Adductors. He felt it at the start of the Sunderland game.
We can talk about a mis-kick or an assist for Andre’s goal but he said at that moment he felt it.
He had a scan after the game and although it showed nothing major, it is serious enough to rule him out of this game.”
Injury-hit Carroll, 28, out with a knee problem earlier during this campaign, has also battled a recurring groin issue and his absence is worth considering for those visiting free bet sites to place a wager on the match.
