Andy Caroll has admitted that he is feeling the nerves as Liverpool prepare to play Newcastle on Sunday in what will be a vital game for both clubs ambitions of achieving a top six finish.
Liverpool are currently eight points behind Newcastle who are level on points with Chelsea after a fantastic season that has seen Alan Pardew's side shock most pundits and observers.
However, it is an even more important game for Caroll who left Newcastle in January last year for £35million but has struggled to repeat his goal scoring exploits with Liverpool.
"I don't usually get nervous but this might be a bit different," Carroll told The Sun. "All of my family and friends will be there but they're so big on football I'm not sure who they'll be supporting.
"It's great to see Newcastle doing so well. I support them, was brought up there and was lucky enough to have played for them. They will always mean something."
Should Newcastle manage to beat Liverpool then they are almost certain to finish at least in sixth place, while the Reds come drop as low as ninth depending on other fixtures.
Dalglish has begun to come under pressure after spending so much money since taking over from Roy Hodgson but he has seen his club achieve cup success.
The Reds have already won the Carling Cup and will travel to Wembley to play their Merseyside rivals Everton in the FA Cup semi-final next month.
