Andy Carroll’s long-awaited debut for Liverpool could be just a few weeks away, with reports this morning suggesting the Reds are hoping he will make his debut for the club against Manchester Utd on Sunday, March 6th.
Carroll completed a £35million move from Newcastle Utd on the last day of the January transfer window, smashing the club’s record transfer fee for a new player.
But the 22-year-old striker has yet to play for the Reds as he struggled to overcome a thigh injury.
Carroll is now back in training and regaining his match fitness. The prospect of playing against Man Utd at Anfield in the Premier League on March 6th is very much real, with a potential Europa League game four days later.
Jamie Carragher last night spoke of his excitement at the capture of Carroll and £23million striker Luis Suarez.
“I was delighted to get them in and the club made a statement,”he said. “Suárez has made a great start. He’s got the goal, but it’s his performances more than anything. With Carroll coming back, it looks the perfect partnership. Someone the size of Andy Carroll and then Suárez, it looks good.”
