Liverpool forward Andy Carroll has expressed his delight at scoring against the clubs Merseyside rivals Everton in the derby at the weekend but insists he will try to move on starting with Manchester United after the weekend break.
The former Newcastle United striker scored the first of two goals by Liverpool as they beat Everton 2-0 at Goodison Park but has been under pressure since his £35m move from the Magpies.
The player then felt the need to dedicate the goal to others including the fans for their support and patience this season, and told the Liverpool Daily Post.
“The goal is for everyone really, Kenny, the others lads and the fans. Everyone who has stood by me, it is a great feeling but it doesn’t really matter who scores the goals as long we get the three points and I thought it was great we did it here. The dressing room was just buzzing afterwards. Everyone was over the moon. This is by far the highlight of my time here, easily.”
The Liverpool striker added:
“Scoring against Everton and beating them at their place is special but you have got to keep it going. We’ve got Man United next game and I’ve got to make sure that I keep doing well week in and week out now.”
The win against Everton keeps the Anfield side just two point below fourth spot and six points behind league leaders Manchester United.
