Andy Carroll is pleased he has been provided with further opportunities to play alongside Luis Suarez in recent weeks.

The 22-year-old has been required to come off the bench in the main this season, with Kenny Dalglish often opting to operate with Suarez as a lone frontman.

Carroll, though, was used from the start against West Brom on Saturday and was rewarded for his endeavours with a goal as Liverpool triumphed 2-0.

The £35 million January signing from Newcastle now believes he and Suarez have the making of a fruitful partnership - and hopes they will be given the chance to continue to gel.

"Luis is a great player, he works hard for the team so it is nice to have him up top with me - it makes it a lot easier," he said.

"He makes chances and can score goals himself so he is a great player himself. He can drop off and get the ball to his feet to dribble with it and slip people in.

"We are playing well together at the minute and hope it will carry on. I must admit I have been disappointed to be on the bench.

"I have been working hard to get my place and I think I have earned it. I played well last week and getting a goal as well this weekend was even better."
