Carroll looking 'sharp' according to West Ham winger Jarvis

The England striker continued his comeback from injury against San Marino in the international break and the former Wolves man expects him to back to his best soon
West Ham winger Matt Jarvis is excited by Andy Carroll’s return to fitness, and has backed the striker to hit top form.

The England striker made a substitute appearance against San Marino during the international break, after making appearances against QPR and Arsenal following a hamstring injury sustained on his Hammers debut.

11/10 Andy Carroll is 11/10 to score anytime against Southampton with bet365
Carroll is expected to play a part against Southampton on Saturday and Jarvis is relishing playing alongside the former Newcastle man after seeing him perform well in training.

"He's been training all the time and he does look sharp," Jarvis told Sky Sports.

"He's one of those players that’s always hungry to play and I'm sure if he's fit and ready to go at the weekend he'll be all good.

"As a striker you always want to score goals but I think he's shown in the games he's played what he brings to the team and if it's not his goals he's putting other people into play and generally terrorising defences and making it easier for others to play.

"But I'll be delighted for him to get off the mark, its good when you first go to a team to get your first goal and I was very pleased to do that against QPR."
