Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has said that striker Andy Carroll is becoming better and better with every game for Liverpool. Andy Carroll moved to Liverpool for Newcastle United for a British transfer record of £ 35 million. This is the highest ever fee paid to a British player. Despite this fee, Andy Carroll has failed to deliver the goods for Liverpool up until now. However, he scored his eighth goal for Liverpool in the match against Brighton. Despite this, Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard has said that Andy Carroll has been showing signs of revival in the last few matches.

He also went on to say that Andy Carroll was by far the best player on the pitch against Brighton. Liverpool were taking on Brighton at Anfield in the fifth round of the FA Cup. Liverpool managed a very convincing 6-1 victory over the Championship side, which helped them to progress into the quarter-finals. Liverpool have been drawn against Stoke city at home in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. Andy Carroll was one of the chief architects of the victory, and Steven Gerrard was quick to praise the performances of the former Newcastle United striker.

“He has been brilliant for weeks now. He’s getting better and better the more he settles into the club. We were really pleased with him and I thought he was our man of the match,” said Gerrard after the 6-1 victory. Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish was also quick to praise the player by saying that he has a real striker whom he can depend upon for the Carling cup final against Cardiff city. Liverpool will be making their first appearance at the new Wembley in the Carling cup final against Cardiff city. Andy Carroll is expected to be one of the contenders for the starting line-up.
