The Reds' Return...

Saturday's 5-0 win over Birmingham was the 16th successive Premier League game they have scored in - the best run in the top flight.

Kenny Dalglish believes any abuse Andrew Carroll receives at the hands of the Newcastle fans on Sunday merely shows how much the striker meant to the Magpies faithful.

Liverpool's £35 million signing is hoping to shake off a knee injury in order to face his old club, and Dalglish has warned Carroll he may receive a hostile reception.

However, former Newcastle boss Dalglish is convinced that any insults from travelling Magpies fans only proves how devastated they were when the striker switched to Anfield in January.

Dalglish will give Carroll every chance to prove his fitness before Sunday, but has warned the striker he will not risk his long-term fitness in order to let him face his boyhood club. And despite struggling with injury since his move to Merseyside, Dalglish expects Carroll to finish the season on a high.

Liverpool's rise up the table has been an achieved at the same time as integrating some young players into the squad. In the absence of injured skipper Steven Gerrard, 22-year-old former youth team captain Jay Spearing has slotted in alongside Lucas and the Brazilian has been impressed by his new partner.

Liverpool play Tottenham at Anfield on May 15 in a match that could decide fifth place in the Premier League.
