Cape Town - Andy Carroll's brilliant performance against Swansea City has earned the striker the praise of his manager.
The Guardian report that West Ham manager Sam Allardyce was pleased with Andy Carroll's performance against Swansea City on Sunday.
England forward Andy Carroll scored twice in West Ham United's 3-1 victory over Swansea City on Sunday that lifted the London club to third in the Premier League.
Carroll's manager told reporters after the game that his number nine may have produced his best ever display for the Hammers.
“I’d have to say it’s very close,” said Allardyce when asked if Carroll's inspired input was his best ever in a West Ham kit.
Allardyce revealed that his technical team had toyed with the idea of taking Carroll off. “We thought: ‘No, we’ll leave him on and enjoy what’s been a very good eight days for us.’ ”
Carroll then assisted fellow strike partner Diafra Sakho who netted West Ham’s third goal.
“I’ve played a couple of games and I’m back but until you score you don’t feel like you are definitely back. Now I’ve scored I am definitely back.” said Carroll, after the game.
