Hamstring woe sees Carroll drift to top-score for West Ham
WEST Ham and England striker Andy Carroll has drifted from 2-1 to 5-1 with BetVictor to be West Ham's top league goalscorer this season after being ruled out for between five and six weeks with a hamstring injury.
Ricardo Vaz Te and Kevin Nolan are joint 4-1 favourites to be the main men after reports said that Liverpool also have an option to recall their £35 million forward in January, meaning the target man may not have the full season to score the necessary goals.
Carroll starred in Saturday's 3-0 win over Fulham and his absence is an unlucky blow for West Ham and their manager Sam Allardyce.
The Hammers now have two remaining fixtures in September away at Norwich and at home to Sunderland, and they are 2-1 with BetVictor to score under five goals for the month having amassed three already.
