Carroll was forced to leave St Mary’s on crutches, and scans on Thursday afternoon revealed that he has suffered a recurrence of an old problem that will now keen him out until the end of March.
He had only just returned to action for his first game since January 31, but will now be forced to endure more agony on the sidelines.
Hammers boss Sam Allardyce said after the goalless draw with the Saints: “It’s the same knee, he got kicked in the back of the knee and felt something wrong.
“He stayed up and was a nuisance. I just hope that staying on hasn’t done any more damage.
“He got fit in two and a half weeks after Liverpool but clearly it’s going to take longer this time because it’s the same injury.”
