The Tweets: Should West Ham’s Andy Carroll have been sent off v Manchester United

In the run-up to the halftime whistle at Upton Park on Wednesday night, Liverpool loanee Andy Carroll began demanding attention.

The West Ham and England striker was twice involved in unsavoury incidents.

First off  Carroll appeared to kick Wayne Rooney as the pair jostled side-by-side as they waited for a free-kick to be delivered. Then, moments later, Carroll left Man United keeper David De Gea poleaxed as the centre-forward headbutting the Spaniard from another set play.

The two incidents were both controversial, yet Carroll managed to avoid getting a booking on both counts.

Footage of Andy Carroll’s headbutt on David De Gea can be seen below, followed by some of the best Tweets on whether the ponytailed attacker should have been dismissed for an early bath.
