The striker was clearly frustrated during Sunday’s home defeat to Manchester City, remaining on the bench as an unused substitute before disappearing down the tunnel towards the end of the match.
In his post-match interview, Moyes promised to “deal with it”, and yesterday the pair were involved in a heated exchange before Moyes sent Carroll home.
After a 4-1 loss to the champions left the Hammers just three points outside the drop-zone with three games left, Moyes told Sources: “In this situation, what you need is everybody to be a team member. So if he has done that, I’ll look at it and I’ll deal with it.”
Carroll, 29, has made 16 appearances for West Ham this season, as he has continued to struggle with injury problems. He was also sent off against Burnley last October.
