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."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
