Bilic confident over AC

carrollSlaven Bilic has claimed that Andy Carroll’s injury is not unduly serious declaring: “It’s a  hamstring injury, it’s one of those injuries that it is hard to tell how long he’ll be out.
He’s having a scan later on today so we’ll know more soon. It wasn’t a big one, but it’s not a small one either, hopefully it’s only going to three and a half weeks or so, not four to six.

“It’s a big blow, of course, he was looking good, he was sharp and fully fit. He’ll be back soon and he won’t lose too much fitness.”

He told during his morning presser for the Newcastle game: “He is a positive lad himself. He was gutted of course, he felt he was back and he was enjoying his football. We don’t have to make a big story about it.

If everything goes well he will be back very soon, if it is three weeks then it’s not the end of the world. Then he’ll be back for a very significant part of the season.”
