Daily Mirror - - SPORT - BY DAR­REN LEWIS

SLAVEN BILIC be­lieves Andy Car­roll and Javier Her­nan­dez can form a deadly lit­tle and large strike part­ner­ship for West Ham.

The Irons boss is rel­ish­ing the prospect of his bat­ter­ing ram, com­ple­mented by his ac­com­plished goal poacher, punch­ing holes in op­po­si­tion de­fences this sea­son.

Bilic said: “They are com­pli­men­tary play­ers. That was the plan when we got Her­nan­dez.

“We didn’t buy him just be­cause of that, but one of the rea­sons was be­cause they can play to­gether.

“The lit­tle and large striker. You have it maybe less now, but it’s not old-fash­ioned. They can work to­gether.”
