West Ham boss Slaven Bilic is hopeful Andy Carroll will be fit to face Chelsea in their next match Monday week.

The injury-hit striker missed Saturday's 1-1 draw at Watford with a groin problem but Bilic expects him back in full training by Wednesday at the latest.

"The guys from the medical department have told me he's going to start training Tuesday or Wednesday," said the Hammers manager.

"He ran on Friday and Saturday morning with no negative reaction, so hopefully. Me and my medical department are fighting. They say Wednesday, I say Tuesday.

"Then hopefully four or five days of training, that is always enough for Andy to shine in the next game. So hopefully he is going to be able to play against Chelsea."
