West Ham have confirmed that the fan was spoken to by staff and removed from the stadium nearly immediately, and that they would be working closely with both West Brom and Livermore to determine the exact events. Carroll hurtled at it, cleared out Kieran Gibbs and Jonny Evans, and thumped his header into the net.
"Great centre-forwards header for the first goal, that was as good as it gets".
The victory now sees the Hammers elevated to 16th in the Premier League, but only a point outside the bottom three with Moyes looking to strengthen his squad for the second half of the campaign to secure their Premier League safety. We saw all of these in the West Brom match, and they are all things for him to consider.
Jake Livermore attempted to make his way into the crowd to confront a fan after being substituted during West Brom's 2-1 loss to West Ham on Wednesday evening following horrific abuse.
'It's hard when you're coming on for the last 20 minutes.
The game started with both teams mirroring the tension that was radiating from the fans in attendance.

Albion boss Alan Pardew, still without a win from eight matches in charge, had wanted the Premier League to postpone this match as it came just two days after a gruelling 1-1 draw with Arsenal.
Before any physical exchanges, Livermore was taken to the tunnel by West Brom's assistant manager, John Carver and even the West Ham officials were quick to react.
"I don't think he would have gone into the crowd unless he was provoked because I know Jake", the Baggies manager told Sky Sports. Obviously you don't want to see a player in the crowd. That's all I know.
Mills added: "I had something very similar when we lost our son".
I had to know that there were people out there I could talk to.
It is said that Stoke have told the east London that the 40-cap Wales worldwide is not for sale at any price, but the Hammers may well proceed with a £15million transfer attempt, with midfield reinforcements one of David Moyes' priorities during the current window.
