West Ham boss Allardyce confirms Carroll out two months

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce hailed Carlton Cole's performance in victory over Chelsea.

Allardyce hailed the man-of-the-match performance of Cole, who replaced the injured Andy Carroll.

On-loan Liverpool striker Carroll could be out for up to eight weeks and Allardyce said: "He's in a brace. He stays with us.

"Liverpool use the same specialist as we do. The specialist has given this diagnosis of what to do and hopefully Andy will recover as quick as the specialist said he might."
