West Ham boss Sam Allardyce has admitted he leaves Kevin Nolan, who scored the only goal in the 1-0 success at Newcastle, and Andy Carroll to their own devices when working together.

Allardyce said: "Kevin's relationship with Andy is such a good one that I don't need to do a lot of coaching with those two.

"Kevin will instinctively play off Andy and vice-versa. While Andy is struggling to get a goal - and we would like him to get one -Kevin is the man who is scoring the goals because that combination is causing teams lots of problems.

"We have a strikeforce there that is reaping rewards for the team by winning games of football, and 18 points after 11 games for a newly-promoted side is an outstanding start."
