Predicted West Ham side to play Bolton: Rice and Byram should start

Predicted West Ham side to play Bolton: Rice and Byram should start

West Ham face Bolton at the London Stadium but Carroll will not be risked with Bilic unwilling to let him play three games in eight days after his thigh injury.

His manager said: "He looked unhappy [to come off] but we have quality players on the bench and we changed the whole three up front because, as I said, we had Ayew, Arnautovic and Sakho, and I was very happy with the way they kept the shape, defended and pressed".

"It is hard to do that and then have three at the back, then with Antonio and Arnautovic, it is nearly impossible". It's possible, of course, and I'm thinking about that the most.

"But I spoke to him and he is a great lad and I said "we have priorities and at the moment the team needs you there" and he is doing the job, of course". "He looks good and fit, hopefully he will last for ages now without an injury, touch wood".




'We tried to manage him last year and two years ago but it didn't help a lot - but this season we are managing him a little bit different'.

In early team news, Bilic can not call on Mark Noble, Edimilson Fernandes or Manuel Lanzini while James Collins is unlikely to be risked as he recovers from an ankle injury.

Carroll led West Ham's attack in Saturday's 0-0 draw at West Brom with the former Newcastle & Liverpool man also successfully coming through 80 minutes in the Hammers' 2-0 victory over Huddersfield. "He looks good now, touchwood".
