Andy Carroll believes West Ham are safe in the Premier League after their 2-1 win at Sunderland on Monday night.

The striker scored the opening goal at the Stadium of Light and a second from Mo Diame put the Hammers clear.

Sunderland pulled one back through Adam Johnson but it was not enough to earn them anything.

West Ham now have 37 points, are comfortable in mid-table, and Carroll echoed co-chairman David Gold’s Twitter claim that they are out of trouble.

“You take every game as it is, keep an eye on the teams winning below, but I think we are safe, yeah,” he told Sky Sports.

Carroll’s man-of-the-match performance again roused the debate as to whether or not he should be picked for the World Cup.

“That’s what I’m looking for now, scoring goals and keeping on it until the end of the season,” he added.
