Dalglish hoping Carroll and Enrique are nervous ahead of Liverpool’s trip to Newcastle

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is expecting Andy Carroll and Jose Enrique to be nervous ahead of their return to Newcastle United this weekend.

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is expecting Andy Carroll and Jose Enrique to be nervous ahead of their return to Newcastle United this weekend.

The former Magpies will head back to St James’ Park for the first time this Sunday since they both departed the North East club and Dalglish, who is also returning following his managerial stint in 1997 and 1998, is hoping they are feeling some sort of anxiety as it may motivate them to put in a positive performance.

"It's not a bad thing is it? If you weren't nervous you'd have a wee bit of a problem,” he told the club’s official website.

"In my case it was always best to be nervous rather than totally laid back.

"I don't think anyone can be laid back when they go and play at the club that gave him his opportunity in football and turned him into a professional footballer.

"For him (Carroll) and Jose it will be an exciting time to go back."
