Carling Cup Final 2012 Cardiff City v Liverpool – Tickets
Andy Carroll, Liverpool FC
Liverpool is headed into the Carling Cup Final this weekend and the good news is Andy Carroll is looking fit and up for the important clash with Cardiff for the silverware.
Liverpool FC striker Andy Carroll believes he will justify his £35 million transfer fee after a Man of the Match performance last weekend. Carroll played his best game to date for Liverpool in the 6-1 FA Cup defeat of Brighton, scoring the third goal – as the twenty-three year old striker begins to hit form after recovering from injury.
Carroll has scored two goals in four matches, three since the turn of the year – doubling his tally to six for the 2011-12 season.
“I feel like I am doing well. I have just started scoring goals and I am doing well in games. I think it has all come together,” said Carroll.
“Without a doubt and I think it shows in my performances – getting around the pitch a bit more, getting involved. I am happy, more confident and things are going all right.
“The whole team played well and I was delighted to get a goal and obviously so for Luis as well.”
Next weekend, Liverpool play in the Carling Cup Final.
“It is a massive game and I think all the lads are looking forward to it. Hopefully we can get the win,” he said. “I have never been to a cup final. That is all I am looking forward to, getting there. It is a great feeling and hopefully we can win it.
“We have got a massive squad and everyone can play a part in it. We are such a good team that you could pick anyone.
“You have just got to work hard. The manager picks the team at the end of the day. If we can get the trophy it would be great.”
Carroll, the most expensive British player in history, transferred from Newcastle last January.
Sunday’s win over Championship visitors Brighton was the first time Carroll, Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez had started a match together.
The Carling Cup Final 2012 will take place between Cardiff City and FC Liverpool at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, February 26th, 2012.
Last year, the Carling Cup Final was an exciting battle between Arsenal and Birmingham City at London’s Wembley Stadium. Birmingham eventually won with a score of 2-1.
