Sam Allardyce revealed striker Andy Carroll would be a month away from returning to action when he resumes training after his side fought out a goalless draw against Aston Villa at Upton Park.
Carroll has a troublesome heel problem and there is no date yet for when he might resume full training.
– West Ham manager Sam Allardyce.
When Andy gets back training it's probably the best part of four weeks before he gets back onto the field in the first team. He has to start a four-week pre-season. We'd try to speed that up if we possibly could.

Danny Ings is adamant that Championship table-toppers Burnley will extend their unbeaten home run and book a place in the League Cup's last eight at the expense of West Ham.
– Burnley striker Danny Ings
I'm sure we're going to beat them.
I'm really confident about that game. I'm sure with the confidence we've got at the moment we can turn anyone over.
The crowd have been great getting behind us and it seems to be getting louder and louder.

– Carlton Cole speaking to West Ham TV
The next game we've got is Burnley and hopefully we can get goals there.
Everyone knows I need minutes for match fitness. Sunday was a good start on my way to recovery. I'm now hoping to get the minutes and the goals to get us through to the next round if I can.
It was really good to be out there again.
I'm chuffed to get back and to be involved in it again. Any footballer will tell you that have to work hard and the manager has noticed that I was working hard and has given me a new deal.
Hopefully I can push on from here and add to the team and play a significant role.
