West Ham boss Allardyce won't risk Carroll against Liverpool

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce admits he'd like to include Andy Carroll in his squad for their clash with Liverpool.

Carroll is training at the club's Chadwell Heath base after his long-term ankle injury but Allardyce insists he will bring the striker back only when he can last the game.

"In the position we're in it's extremely tough (to resist)," he conceded. "I'd like to put him on the bench for Liverpool but that would be rather stupid.

"We'll do it as quickly as we possibly can but we'll take a sensible view."
