Carroll is joined by Allan Saint-Maximin on the bench – and it’s fair to say fans are getting a bit excited.

@GibboAndy – “I’m not over reacting here but Andy Carroll is going to come on and score 1 million goals.”

@iam_sammac – “ASM to come on and take out 3 players on the wing with god mode skills and cross it for King Carroll to score a beastmode header.”
