Not unexpectedly Andy Carroll look set to return for the Irons at the London Stadium tomorrow night.
After leaving the big man out of his side against Crystal Palace Slaven Bilic has made it pretty clear he will be back in an attempt to sort out his former club.
The manager tends selects players against when they are set to meet former clubs as was the case with Andre Ayew (Swansea) and Jose Fonte (Southampton).
Now he’s backing Carroll to hurt the club which sold him to us for £18 million following a season on loan.
Bilic reckons the Reds style of play will suit the forward saying: “They are not very happy with their position. They are a very good team who play offensive football, which can leave them a little open at the back.
“We’ve analysed them and it’s not only Spurs that have exploited that. We have to be very solid when we play them. They have that pace and quality up front and on the flanks. If you have a good transition and players in the right positions you can hurt them.
“Andy Carroll is definitely one of our players who can hurt them.”
Why not keepnAyew & Chic up front & hopefully AC as impact aub
The match is on Saturday Hugh!
All heil the saviour !!!! ( fanfare of trumpets ) 🎼🎵🎵🎵🎵🎇🎉🎊
Done nothing all season ! Who is going to fly down the wings and supply him ? Oh yes ! I forgot , he will be the crosser or in deep midfield !! Doing an impression of a baby pidgeon trying to get off the ground 😂
A good transition ? Players in the right position ? 😂😂 talks a good game lol but he just doesn’t have a clue !
Sods law , we beat them and then kick that can again !! 2 more weeks 😉
Where’s sakho ? I don’t give a monkeys if he’s on his toes , just play him ffs !!!
“ players in the right positions “ , hmmmm .
Don’t remember our players having a great record against former clubs…Carroll of course is usually not fit for the Liverpool game anyway. Don’t have any stats to back that up but I don’t remember him scoring against the scousers or Newcastle. Given their defensive record you would think he could cause them some trouble. But we have to get the ball first!
