The Hammers may be without Carroll for the visit of the in-form Toffees, but Bilic did confirm that defender Winston Reid is back in contention after recovering from an abductor problem.

The Senegal striker missed last Saturday's 2-2 draw at Sunderland amid rumours of a row with manager Slaven Bilic over being left out of the starting line-up. That paves the way for Sakho to play and the boss insisted today there was no issue with the Senegalese.

"I should know about that if there was because it involves me who spoke with him and everything!"

"We are going to see if he is ready to start but he has been in training this week".

West Ham United forward Andy Carroll is out of his side's clash with Everton on Saturday (22 April) after re-aggravating a groin injury, Slaven Bilic has confirmed. "In some of the games against Everton we did well but he still scored".

The Hammers are now 13th in the table, a full 20 points behind the Toffees with five matches remaining, but while this season looks to be petering out with little left to play for, Slaven Bilic will still want to see some fire in the weeks ahead. We have to try to get him out of his favoured positions and stop the service to him.

Randolph has featured 27 times for the West Ham in all competitions keeping six clean sheets and conceding 42 goals. Everton have done a great job to keep him which shows how ambitious they are. "I'm a big admirer of John, he is one of the best that ever played, ..."

"Everton are very confident now, especially at home. Now they are much more solid".

West Ham have endured a tough debut season at the London Stadium and the club are languishing down in 13th place in the Premier League, nine points above the relegation zone.
