David Moyes questioned whether any Premier League defenders could deal with Andy Carroll's aerial threat after he fired West Ham to victory over West Brom.

Carroll ended nine months without a goal in emphatic fashion with a second-half double at the London Stadium, the second of which came deep into stoppage time.

His first, West Ham's equaliser, was a trademark towering header which left Jonny Evans and Kieran Gibbs grounded, and Moyes was jubilant after his striker's return to form.

"They were top goals," he told Sky Sports. "I don't know if there are many centre-halves that could have dealt with his leap for the first goal, and I must say the ball in is terrific.

Shelvey considered a top target for West Ham in January

  Shelvey considered a top target for West Ham in January David Moyes is lining up a shock move for Newcastle’s mercurial midfielder Jonjo Shelvey, according to a Mirror exclusive. Moyes is believed to be desperate to strengthen his midfield in the January transfer window as he looks to boost the Hammers’ chances of survival this season. With the long-term future of Mark Noble in mind, Jonjo Shelvey is one key name that features highly on Moyes’ list. Since signing for the Magpies in 2016 from Swansea, Shelvey has shown that he has untapped potential, but he has yet to hit full stride for Rafa Benitez’ side. The former Liverpool and Swansea midfielder has already been sent off twice this season, and is now seen by a large section of the North East club’s fan base as a liability, due to his persistent temperament issues. When not suspended, Shelvey has struggled to maintain a regular place in Newcastle’s starting line-up, and with Amanda Staveley’s takeover still not having gone through for the club just yet, the Magpies could be tempted to sell Shelvey in order to raise funds for transfers. Newcastle would presumably want to make back much of the £12million that they paid for him if he is to leave Tyneside in January.

On that day, the Hammers won 2-0, with Carroll leading the line. And Redknapp believes that performance should have shown Moyes how he needs to play at the London Stadium.

"And you have to give him great credit for the finish for the second goal."

The Hammers moved five points clear of West Brom with the dramatic 2-1 victory, a result which stretched the Baggies' winless run in the Premier League to 20 games.

It ended a run of four games without a win in all competitions for Moyes' men, and, despite conceding West Ham were not at their best, the Scot demanded his side to push on.

"You can see how important it was, it would have been the same had West Brom scored, Alan [Pardew] would have felt the same," he added. "It was vital three points for us.

"We've come close, we were unlucky against Newcastle a few weeks ago and obviously felt we should have won the game at Bournemouth and we didn't, so to do it today was maybe just.

"We didn't play well, maybe the system we played, which has been good for us, didn't work at all tonight.

"But we made the changes, got 15 yards further up the field and were the better team in the second half, but we weren't at the races in the first half. For long periods we didn't do well at the back, but in the end we got our rewards.

"We want to be out of the bottom three. Psychologically you don't want to be in it at all, I was disappointed when we did slip back into it, but tonight we got a result and we've got to try and move on."

West Ham to hold futher talks over Dendoncker .
West Ham are to hold further talks as they pursue a potential deal for Anderlecht’s Leander Dendoncker, according to the Daily Mail. The 22-year old Belgian is reportedly interested in teaming up with David Moyes at the London Stadium, and his agent has a good rapport with the West Ham boss. Moyes is looking to strengthen his midfield this month and has been linked with a number of options. The club hope to complete Dendoncker as they need a holding midfielder, as well as hoping to complete a deal for Jonjo Shelvey from Swansea before the deadline. Anderlecht are believed to be demanding a fee of around £27million for the Belgium international, which is due in part to the fact that Dendoncker has been filling in at centre-back in recent weeks, following an injury to Kara Mbodji. Moyes is also reportedly interested in doing a deal for Burnley midfielder Scott Arfield. However, Burnley insist the 29-year old, who is out of contract in the summer, is not for sale this month. The Clarets have also offered him a new deal.
