Liverpool striker Andy Carroll silenced Reds legend Sami Hyypia on Sunday.

Carroll struck a superb goal in Liverpool's 3-1 win over Hyypia's Bayer Leverkusen.

Before the friendly, Bayer coach Hyypia slammed Carroll: "I can't say that I am a fan of Andy Carroll.

"If I had to play against him? Well, I would rather that to playing against Luis Suarez, for sure.

"For the type of player he is, that would suit me better than a player like Suarez."
