Carroll opened the scoring with his fifth goal of the season in West Hamís 3-0 win over Hull City on Sunday.

Carroll was the first to reach an Enner Valencia rebound that Allan McGregor couldnít get a hold of. Otherwise, Carroll put in a fairly quiet shift, but complimented the attack nicely. West Ham returns to Premier League action on Jan. 31 against a Liverpool team just one point behind them in the table.

Carroll scored his fourth goal of the season in Saturday's 1-1 draw against Swansea City.

Carroll displayed brilliant skill to control Stewart Downing's cross and elude multiple defenders in the box before curling a shot into the top right corner. The goal was Carroll's only shot on target as West Ham struggled to convert quality play on the flanks into true scoring opportunities. Carroll will look to continue his good form next weekend against a Hull City side currently sitting in the relegation zone.

Carroll scored in the 24th minute of West Ham's 2-0 win over Leicester City on Saturday.

Carroll has been in excellent form of late, scoring three goals and recording one assist in his last three games. He continues to take a solid number of shots (four more Saturday) and is clearly Big Sam's top forward option to play alongside Diafra Sakho. Up next is a very difficult Boxing Day match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Carroll had two goals and an assist during West Ham's 3-1 win over Swansea City on Sunday.

In his fifth appearance since returning from a long-term foot injury, Carroll looked absolutely dominant, scoring both goals off headers by taking advantage of his height advantage. He'll have to continue to battle for playing time with Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho, but after Sunday's performance, there's no reason for Carroll to hit the bench any time soon.

Carroll (ankle) came on as a late second-half sub in West Ham's scoreless draw with Aston Villa on Saturday, finishing with two shots, which both landed on goal.

Carroll's appearance was his first this season due to his long layoff with an ankle injury. He'll likely be used sparingly to begin, and it may be tough for him to break into the starting XI with Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia playing well this season.

Carroll hasn't played for West Ham since May due to the injury due to the injury, but he could be in consideration for this weekend's match against Aston Villa, though he will likely return after the international break.
