Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish refused to confirm Andy Carroll would start against former club Newcastle United on Friday.

He has not started back-to-back league matches since November 5 but Dalglish said no one, irrespective of who the opposition was, was guaranteed that.

"Anyone who started against Blackburn has a chance of starting back-to-back games, not just Andy," he said.

"Whether it is his former club or not it makes no difference to me in terms of what the team will be.

"The most important thing is for him to be playing for us. That is what he is concentrating on."
