West Ham manager Slaven Bilic insists Andy Carroll’s attitude and work ethic is the reason behind his recent impact.

Carroll came off the bench to score the winner against Chelsea on Saturday and made a big impact in a similar role at Crystal Palace a week earlier.

Having had a run of long term injuries to either his knee or ankle, the former Liverpool and Newcastle man was written off by some sections of Hammers fans and pundits.

Back fit and back in form, the striker is now closing in on his first start for the club this season in the league and Bilic has hailed his attitudue for going through eight weeks of ‘boring’ training.

“It was hard for him,” Bilic said.

“He will benefit from the hard work he has put in over the last eight weeks.

“It was really boring work but he is going to benefit from that now. He has never had that before, the individual training and work has been doing to get fit.

“It is not about his goal, it is about how fit he is and how he stays fit.”
