West Ham United striker Andy Carroll says that he was "over the moon" at being named in the starting lineup to face Swansea City

West Ham United striker Andy Carroll has revealed that he was "over the moon" when he found out that he was in the starting lineup to face Swansea City on Saturday.

The on-loan Liverpool forward was handed his first start since November by manager Sam Allardyce, and he did not disappoint as he headed home the only goal of the game.

"I did not find out until [Saturday] that I was going to start and I was obviously over the moon with the decision," said Carroll after the match.

"I just had to work hard, run around and keep the ball as much as I could with being up there by myself.

"It was a tough game and I am just happy we got the three points."

The goal was Carroll's second of the season.
