Enrique predicts Carroll goal run

Liverpool full-back Jose Enrique is in no doubt that striker Andy Carroll will find his form at Anfield.

The £35 million January signing is yet to show his best after making the move from Newcastle nearly 12 months ago, missing large spells of action on Merseyside though injury and on the bench under Kenny Dalglish.

However, 'King Kenny' has given his backing to the England international ahead of a probable run of games for the Reds, and Enrique echoed the sentiments of his manager ahead of the clash against their old club on Friday - Newcastle United.

"Andy is a great player. Nobody pays £35m for a player for nothing and Andy is value. When he starts to score one goal, he will score many goals," said the Spanish defender.

"It is a different style of play for him to get used to here. We have Luis Suarez, Dirk Kuyt, Craig Bellamy - all different. For the style of English football, Andy is very important."

Carroll came close to adding to his tally of two league goals against Blackburn on Saturday, but found Rovers stand-in stopper Mark Bunn in sensational form.

Despite the lack of a goal in the game, Enrique thought his colleague was superb throughout, and has no doubts that things will start to come good for both the player and team in the coming weeks.

"It was a little bit hard to get in behind Blackburn, so you are firing crosses in from everywhere. Andy is capable of scoring a goal in those situations and that is very important," added the 25-year-old former Villarreal starlet.

"I thought Andy was amazing. The one thing is the ball doesn't want to go in the net. We have the players and I think we have an amazing team. I know it will come right soon."
