Anfield hit-man is full of confidence.
Liverpool striker Andy Carroll wants his team-mates to continue their progress and take their confidence into their next match with Manchester United.
The 22-year-old got his first goal of the season in the 2-0 derby win over Everton on Saturday and hails the goal as the highlight of his Reds career so far.
The England international has come under criticism following his £35million move from Newcastle United last January but he feels the squad are now beginning to gel.
“We have been doing well,” Carroll told the club’s website.
“Obviously there was a blip against Tottenham but the lads have been keeping together and we showed that spirit in the derby.
“Scoring against Everton and beating them at their place is special but you have to keep it going.
“The dressing room was just buzzing afterwards. Everyone was over the moon.
“We’ve got Man United next game and I’ve got to make sure I keep doing well week in and week out now.
“We are a new team and we are still gelling together.
“That’s what we have got to do, stick to the performance that we have produced here and I am sure we will be up there.”
Reflecting on his strike that set Liverpool on the way to three points, he added:
“It is a great feeling but it doesn’t really matter who scores the goals as long as we get the three points and I thought it was great we did it here.
“This is by far the highlight of my time here, easily. It was a good result and it was nice to get on the score sheet. It felt great.”
