Andy Carroll returns to St James’ Park on Sunday when Liverpool play Newcastle United in the Premier League.  Castrol stats show that the £35 million striker has scored only five league goals in 35 appearances for Liverpool and consequently his chance conversion rate has slumped to a meagre 8.1%.

However, despite receiving heavy criticism, Carroll has contributed more to Liverpool than might be expected. For instance, his shooting accuracy has improved from 40.5% at Newcastle to 41.9% and his heading accuracy has gone up from 34.2% to 38.5%.  Interestingly, he is now creating a chance for Liverpool every 55.9 minutes, compared with a chance every 79.2 minutes whilst at Newcastle.

But while some of Carroll’s stats may have improved, his price tag means that questions will always be asked of him regardless of how well he does in all departments other than scoring goals.
