Andy Carroll came close to scoring for Liverpool on Saturday against Wolves. He had one opportunity with a header that came off the bar and then towards the end of the game he had what I would like to term a ‘sitter’ he was through on goal and all he had to do was fire the shot with his left foot past the keeper but instead he tried to dance past the Wolves defenders and in the end failed to score.
Carroll should understand that playing with the ball at his feet is not his strong point, he should leave that to the likes of Suarez. Luis Enrique has come out and echoed my sentiments that Carroll did ‘too many tricks’ in the box and thus did not score. But our left-back is confident that Carroll will find the back of the net soon.
“Andy was unlucky not to score,” said Enrique. “Maybe he tried too many tricks with the chance at the end but I think next time he will score.
“Against Everton would be the perfect game for him to score.”
I certainly hope he does as we need him to be firing and we should not just be relying on Suarez to score for us.
