Carroll targets Arsenal duck

Published Add your comment

Liverpool striker Andy Carroll believes he can help the Reds break their Arsenal duck when they travel to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Fresh from netting his first and second goals for the Anfield club in Monday's 3-0 home victory over Manchester City.

Carroll is confident he can take the momentum into this weekend's crucial Barclays Premier League encounter.

The three points on offer are vitally important for both sides end of season aspirations.

Arsenal, who are still chasing the title, can ill-afford to drop any more points, while Liverpool are chasing European qualification ahead of next season.


"We need to work hard to close them down and make sure that we don't give them space or time on the ball," said Carroll.

"We know what a good side Arsenal are and what they can do if you allow them to do that."

Liverpool have failed to win in their last thirteen visits to Arsenal, with their last success stretching back to 2000 when former Reds striker Titi Camara scored the only goal of the game in a 1-0 victory at Highbury.

The away duck also means that Liverpool have never tasted victory at the Gunners' new home, the Emirates Stadium, but despite that Carroll is optimistic that this season can be different.

"There's no reason why Liverpool can't win there and all the lads are confident that we can beat Arsenal."
