Andy Carroll: Scored a trademark header in the 77th minute to defeat Swansea Cit

The on-loan Liverpool striker made his first start since November following injury when featuring in Sam Allardyce's first XI against Swansea City on Saturday.

And Carroll marked the occasion with a fine display and a 77th minute header to earn West Ham only their third win in two months

The striker, who could make a permanent summer move to Upton Park, told Sky Sports: "It was a great feeling to get 90 minutes, get the three points and, obviously, get the goal.

"I did not find out until today that I was going to start and I was obviously over the moon with the decision.

"I just had to work hard, run around and keep the ball as much as I could with being up there by myself.

"It was a tough game and I am just happy we got the three points."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
