Moyes sweating on scan results

David Moyes expects Andy Carroll to return for this weekend's trip to Manchester City - but is sweating on the results of a scan on defender Winston Reid.

Moyes, whose team were beaten 4-0 by fellow relegation candidates Everton last night is facing a fresh injury crisis after losing two of his key first team players within the last 48 hours.

However the big striker - who was once again absent last night - should return in time to face the league leaders at the Etihad this weekend, according to a shellshocked Moyes.

"We don't think his [Andy's] injury is that bad," he told the media following last night's reversal. "We had it scanned and nothing showed up."

Meanwhile Reid - who had only recently returned to the first team - is expected to undergo a scan today in order to determine the extent of the damaged sustained to his hamstring which, depending on the severity, could keep him out of action for anywhere between two and six weeks.

Slightly better news for Moyes was the return to first team action last night for Michail Antonio, whilst key striker Javier Hernandez - who has also been sidelined in recent weeks with a hamstring, picked up on international duty - is touch and go for this Sunday's trip to Manchester.
