Andy Carroll is back training for West Ham United and banging in the goals for fun.

And that will strike fear into the heart of the Newcastle United defence, with the two sides due to meet in the first game back after the international break.

Carroll is in line to return to the squad having made his long-awaited comeback from a long-term knee ligament injury.

You can watch his impressive array of goals on the training ground here after the striker tweeted a link to the footage.

Carroll tweeted: “One man is gutted to see me back!! @AdriSanMiguel how’s your back after picking all them out the back of the net!!”

Ex-Newcastle and Liverpool striker Carroll was expected to be missing until October but he returned to training with the Under-21 squad last month, and boss Slaven Bilic believes the England international could play some part against former club Newcastle United on Monday, September 14.
