West Ham United’s Andy Carroll wants six points from last two games
Andy Carroll challenges West Ham United to collect six points from their remaining two Premier League games
Andy Carroll has challenged West Ham United to collect six points from their remaining two Premier League games, starting with victory at Everton on Sunday.
The Hammers are currently in 10th place in the Premier League table and could still secure a top-half finish in their first season back in the top flight.
And Carroll, who has scored four goals in his last six outings for the east London club, is keen to help Sam Allardyce’s men finish the season as high as possible, with the Hammers set to face Reading on the final day of the campaign.
“It would be nice to get a result at Everton on Sunday,” Carroll, who is on loan from Liverpool, told West Ham TV.
“We hoped to get a result last Saturday [at Newcastle] but only managed a point but that’s good enough. I hope we get six points from our last two games.
“I missed a lot of the season through injury so I’ve kept myself fit and put in the work to stay like this. Now it’s paying off and I’m happy. I could still go for another few. I’m not ready for the rest yet.”
Carroll was voted the Hammers’ player of the month for the second time in a row this week – and the 24-year-old was delighted to pick up the prize again.
“I’ve been working hard, the fans have been seeing me playing well and it’s good to get the award for the second month running. I’m happy,” he said.
“It’s great for the fans to have a vote and I am over moon with collecting it two months in a row. But obviously, it’s a team game and everybody puts their all in every week.”
