West Ham United: Many fans are unsurprised that Andy Carroll is unavailable for Newcastle United

Newcastle United will travel to London Stadium for their Premier League game against West Ham United on Saturday, but it seems as though Andy Carroll won’t be involved.

Should Manuel Pellegrini be sacked?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This could have been the 30-year-old’s first opportunity to play at London Stadium since coming on for the final 11 minutes of a 1-1 draw against Liverpool, as per Transfermarkt, but he is now set to miss the game through injury, as reported by The Evening Standard.

The Twitter account Uber West Ham have shown that they were not overly surprised by the injury update:

Plenty of Hammers fans are also far from shocked that the nine cap England international will be unavailable for the game.

This is due to the fact that during his time in East London, from the 2012/13 season up until the summer of 2019, he missed a total of 151 games through various injuries.

A selection of Twitter reaction to the update, including posts from unsurprised West Ham fans, can be seen below:
