Andy Carroll is always a threat

ACSlaven Bilic says Andy Carroll is always a threat but he needs more games under his belt. Speaking to WHUFC.com he said: “Andy (Carroll) is always a threat and he was good in the air and also with stopping the balls and laying it off to the flanks, we put a lot of balls in where he couldn’t find a position to get a clean header, which is also down to West Brom, because they are known to defend well from those situations.”

It is very important for him to get the games under his belt. He looks good now, touch wood. This was his second game and he looks fit and he looks competitive and the quality will come through the games. It’s a big boost for us and hopefully long may it continue.

“He looked unhappy [to come off] but we have quality players on the bench and we changed the whole three up front because, as I said, we had Ayew, Arnautovic and Sakho, and I was very happy with the way they kept the shape, defended and pressed. We wanted to score a goal, which is why we put three quality players up front.”
