Carroll nets twice as West Ham beats West Brom 2-1

West Ham United claim a last-gasp 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion in Tuesday night's Premier League encounter at the London Stadium. Only three clubs have endured longer runs without a victory in the Premier League: Derby (32), Sunderland (26) and Norwich (21).

West Brom took the lead when James McClean's strike took a deflection off Angelo Ogbonna and looped over goalkeeper Adrian in the first half.

Carroll made it 1-1 on the hour mark, using his height to leap above two defenders and head a cross past keeper Ben Foster, breaking his own 14-game goal drought - the striker's longest dry spell in nearly a decade.

The Baggies opened a surprising lead at London Stadium before Andy Carroll's second-half double, including the victor in stoppage time, completed the Hammers comeback.

Alan Pardew expressed his disappointment with McClean after the game, while West Brom assistant manager John Carver suggested that the winger get in goal and have his teammates kick the ball at him to teach him a lesson.

"It's ridiculous to play this game".

The Cherries conceded both times in the opening five minutes of each half, starting poorly and magnifying the task ahead of them considerably from the first whistle.

"We were unfortunate to lose Matty Phillips in the warm up".

The two day turnaround has cost us in the end and we ran out of legs and could not keep going.

West Bromwich Albion will have until Saturday to recuperate before an FA Cup third-round trip to Exeter.
