Andy Carroll and Mark Noble injury updates

CarrollAndy Carroll should return from injury in time for the first home game at the London Stadium against Huddersfield Slaven Bilic has revealed. Carroll missed the end of the last league campaign with a groin problem.

Slaven Bilic told reporters he had hoped the 28-year-old would be fit for the third match at Newcastle after missing the first two clashes at Manchester United and Southampton.

But he has been told the risk would be too great and the match on September 11 is a more realistic target. The injury news is more encouraging about skipper Mark Noble. He limped off with a toe injury in the 1-0 pre-season first leg defeat to Werder Bremen on Friday night. But the knock is not too serious he should be fit within a week.

ToeIn other injury news, Manuel Lanzini is expected to be fully fit by the start of the Premier League after picking up a knee injury in training but a hospital scan revealed the knock was not too serious and the player has remained in Germany in the gym building up his fitness.

Michail Antonio is back at rush green working on his recovery from hamstring surgery in May. He will miss the first game or two of the season but is expected back for West Ham’s first home game. Bilic says on Antonio “He [Antonio] is ahead of the plan.The plan is for him to miss the first game of the season.”

LanziniWinston Reid will resume full training next week. He told WHUFC.com yesterday “Hopefully in the next week or so I should be back, which we were sort of aiming for.

“Generally, the rehab has been really good and the surgery has fixed the problem, which is the most important thing. I’ll be able to go out there and play pain-free, which is a blessing.

Diafra Sakho has only just resumed training with the first team in Germany. Two days ago he said “Good news. Diafra Sakho should start training with the first team squad in the next day or so. Good luck Diafra. dg” He should also be fit by the start of the Premier League season.

  1. Look on physioroom.com. We are proudly up at the top again. What is it with this club & inuries. It would be great to have just one season where we are only average for injuries to see how good we could be. Oh well, maybe this year we will get the injuries out of the way in pre season- we can always dream….

  2. The doll to return in time 😂😂😂😂 how about 19/20 season 😉 just in time to save us from relegation and a new extended contract 😎😎 the other day sakho was begging to get on the park ? 100% ? I’m thinking of going fishing again Sean , this bait is magic 😂😂😂
    Shame about Noble 😂 I was looking forward to seeing Cullen get his chance 😤

  3. All these click bait comments will get you banned one day Laz lol

    • Wishful thinking whtid head ? My clicks are without malice , go try you’re luck somewhere else , woof woof 😎

      • Hammerheadz on his occasional visit to cause trouble…what happened to his twin…sharklazer…cut from the same cloth..

  4. Past caring about A.C injury stories.
    Even those that wear a.c tinted glasses can see he is a waste of time and MONEY. But im sure they look forward to 5 games and one bicycle kick goal so his boat is plastered on the outside walls !

  5. Can’t knock Carroll for his ability but 10 games a season is no good . Sakho potentially the best “signing” of the summer . Could be star of season if fit . He is in last chance saloon.Noble is of no interest . He is past his best , which never was very good , and the longer he is out of contention the better . We do not need him even in the squad with Cullen , Holland , Rice etc all of whom have much much more to offer . Time to retire gracefully Noble . You are holding us back . COYI

  6. Harsh on nobes. I think he has come to the end of his whufc career but id thank him for all he has given with is alot of heart. Shouldnt retire he can do a job for someone.

    • Pound land 😂😂 joking aside he’s been a fantastic advert for loyalty in in club football 👍 but it all comes to an end one day , the problem is when it becomes in denial of the truth , the longer he carries on the more rib tickling he’s going to get 😉😉 Nolan mark two is upon him so I hope he has a good season for his and the clubs sake but I just can’t see it😕
      Cullen and a newbie like NDydyi ? To come in and retire him to pound land 😂😂😂 sorry group captain but its open season 👅😂😂

  7. Tell us when he is in a squad pls… updates on Carroll…who cares…

  8. Carroll has to go, £5m and let someone else use his talent 😎

  9. I used to be a Carroll fan but the end of last season done it for me I don’t really count him as a player anymore.. I mean didn’t they say he might make the last 2gamex of last season??? and now 4months later he won’t be ready for the start of this season that’s just so bad …why is the question.. I think he might just don’t give a f!!! Anymore and is having good time on the lash ..he won’t even be a decent squad player anymore. No one will ever know how good he could of been because u just can’t judge on 6\7 games here and there CU’s it normally him 3games to get matvch fit then on the 4th or 5th game he stands on drawing pin at home and he,s off again for a few months..

  10. does anyone know as Carroll played a game against Newcastle since he left the bin dippers or for us? as I can’t recall him playing for us against them but I’m getting on abit & since I’ve swapped E13 for the outback of Norfolk the grey matter is going lol COYI

  11. I would say no Norfolk, you should have asked who has he played against 😂😂

  12. fair point Lazurus 😁😁😁
