Andy Carroll: Unlikely to start for West Ham against Norwich City

Norwich City have not won any of their last 13 Premier League games in London and have never beaten West Ham at Upton Park in the competition.

Team news

West Ham have a major concern over Angelo Ogbonna, who has a hamstring injury, while Alex Song (ankle) and Enner Valencia (knee) are definitely out.

Andy Carroll played 63 minutes of the Hammers’ Capital One Cup defeat to Leicester City in midweek but is unlikely to start again, with Diafra Sakho expected to be recalled.

Norwich, meanwhile, have Alex Tettey available again after a ban, but on-loan winger Matt Jarvis is ineligible to face his parent club, while Gary Hooper (ankle) remains on the sidelines.
