'We tried to manage him last year and two years ago but it didn't help a lot - but this season we are managing him a little bit different'.

Bilic did praise his defence for keeping West Brom at bay, telling the West Ham website: "It has not been a great game of football, but we were solid again and limited them to one chance in the game".

The English forward played a key role in the London's side first Premier League win of the season against Huddersfield last week, while Chicharito is the club's joint top scorer this season alongside Andre Ayew on two goals.

"Of course we have to manage him", he said.

Now, he is expected to miss just two weeks of action and will certainly return after the worldwide break.

But Bilic conceded he is finding it hard to come up with a strategy that will allow him to field Carroll in attack alongside star signing Javier Hernandez.

"I am thinking about them the most but it is hard to have them both in their natural positions", said Bilic.

"It's easy to do that of course, but then it's very hard to have three at the back.it's nearly impossible".

James Collins picked up an ankle ligament problem during their draw with The Baggies at the weekend, whilst Manuel Lanzini and Edimilson Fernandes continue to recover from their respective injuries. "I expected the worst".

The Austria playmaker was sent off against Southampton last month in only his second appearance for the club he joined for £25million during the summer, incurring a three-match ban and the wrath of Slaven Bilic despite making a series of apologies to team-mates, fans and his manager.

"That game is all that I think about and we want to progress, of course".

He said: "It looked worse, it looked like it was going to be a few months but touchwood it's only going to be a couple of weeks".

"The best would be to get an easy win and to rest some players ahead of Spurs, but it's never easy against Bolton".
