Carroll out - but duo set for return

Slaven Bilic has confirmed that Andy Carroll is likely to miss this weekend's clash with Everton - but hinted at a possible return for Diafra Sakho.

The Senegal international was missing from last week's travelling party that drew 2-2 at Sunderland and was rumoured to have exchanged angry words with Bilic having learned that he would not be part of the 18-man squad.

However Bilic denied rumours of a bust up - for the second time this week - and indicated that Sakho could return to face the Toffees.

"Diafra Sakho was injured against Sunderland," he said. "He was supposed to train today and then we're going to see what condition he's in. There was no row, I should know about that as it was me who spoke to him. No row at all."




And there was further good news as Bilic confirmed that Winston Reid is set to be involved following several weeks on the sidelines.

"He's back from injury which is good for us, as he's one of the most important players," added Bilic. "We'll see if he's going to start but he's been training this week. He looks good but it's a big boost for us."




Carroll is set to miss the game having picked up a minor knock, but is scheduled to return for the trip to Stoke the following weekend according to Bilic.

Meanwhile Sam Byram, who was sent off in the closing minutes at Sunderland last weekend will also miss out through suspension.
