Andy Carroll could be recalled to lead the line against Blackburn Rovers in Sunday’s FA Cup Tie as the boss weighs his options for the weekend.
Co chairman David Gold tweeted earlier today that the player was available for the game declaring:” Andy is fit and I expect him to play against Blackburn.”
The Irons are in increasingly good shape and Manu Lanzini look certain to join the squad this weekend as the club take the competition every more seriously.
We understand that the manager may be ready to rest Enner Valencia who looked particularly weary at Norwich whilst Michail Antonio may also be on the bench with Victor Moses starting.
Lanzini is now with the first team squad and according to insiders looking sharp and ready for action with one saying: “He’s certain to be involved at some point .”
We are told that Sakho is about a week to ten days away.
