Andy Carroll better Performance against Newcastle United

Andy Carroll came up against Newcastle United in a Premier League encounter and he managed to get one over his former club.

Carroll came through the ranks at Newcastle before making his Premier League debut with the club in 2006. Since then, he moved to Liverpool for a British transfer record fee of £ 35 million. He still remains the most expensive British player even though his valuation has considerably dropped the since then. West Ham managed to sign him on a permanent basis in the summer for around £ 15 million.

The transfer, though, looked like a grave mistake after the 25-year-old has spent much of the season on the sidelines. He recently returned to full fitness and has been involved in West Ham United’s season. Even though he has not scored since his return, Carroll helped his team get a narrow 1-0 win over Newcastle.

This finally saw Newcastle end the impressive run of five straight win the league victories, which almost lifted them on the verge of a Champions League spot. Aaron Cresswell scored the only goal of the game in the second half before Newcastle midfielder Sissoko was sent off for a second bookable offence.

Carroll said after the match that was strange to see him beat Newcastle, a club that he supports.“I thought the lads played well and we deserved to win.Newcastle have had a great season and have been playing well, and they had been undefeated in a few games, so it is even better to beat them. They are my old team so I have mixed emotions really, with my family, who I have just been in the box with, but we’ve got the three points so we’re happy. We’re happy with our position and we have been playing well,” said Carroll.

Liverpool striker Andy Carroll has said that he is extremely nervous about the prospect of playing at the Sports Direct Arena for the first time since his £ 35 million move to Anfield more than a year ago. Andy Carroll was a fan favourite at Newcastle United. However, he had the displeasure of the fans after sealing his £ 35 million move, which made him the record British transfer. He has struggled to adapt with the tactics at Liverpool, as he has scored just eight goals in more than a year. In this season alone, he has scored only three goals in 25 appearances for the club.

Liverpool will be taking on Newcastle United on Sunday, which is a crunch game for both clubs. Newcastle are close to cementing their place in the top six of the Premier league. They currently have an eight point advantage over Liverpool in the seventh position. If they manage to hold out Liverpool on Sunday, then they will have a real opportunity to finish in the top six – which would have been unimaginable when they were relegated to the Championship a few seasons ago. Carroll also said that he is not sure about the reception he will get when he steps out onto the pitch.

“I don’t usually get nervous but this might be a bit different. All of my family and friends will be there but they’re so big on football that I’m not sure who they’ll be supporting. It’s great to see Newcastle doing so well. Obviously I support them, was brought up there and was lucky enough to play for them. They will always mean something,” Carroll told The Telegraph just ahead of the match. Andy Carroll has already lifted the Carling cup with Liverpool and is hoping for more trophies in his time at Anfield.
