Liverpool striker Andy Carroll believes it cannot get 'any better' than opening his account for the season against Mersey rivals Everton.
The former Newcastle frontman scored the opening goal of the fiery Goodison Park contest on Saturday, with Luis Suarez later sealing a 2-0 win for Kenny Dalglish's men.
It was Carroll's first goal of the season and his third in total for the club since his £30million move from Newcastle last January.
The 22-year-old could not hide his delight at not only breaking his scoring duck for the season, but for netting in such an important game.
"It was a good feeling to get the goal," Carroll told the club's official website.
"It always is great to score, and to get my first league goal of the season against Everton couldn't be any better."
