Liverpool v Newcastle United

Kenny Daglish

Superstar Andy Carroll transferred from Newcastle to Liverpool in January 2011.

Liverpool have taken 27 points from 14 games and are behind only Manchester United and Chelsea in the league. They have hired superstars Andy Carroll and Luis Suárez.

Dalglish started in early January with a 1-0 FA Cup defeat at Manchester United, lost his next match at Blackpool, and oversaw a 2-2 draw with Everton. Then the team took flight, winning 3-0 at Wolves, beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, defeating United 3-1 at Anfield, seeing off Man City 3-0 at home and drawing with Arsenal in London before belting Birmingham City 5-0.

It is not secret that Daglish wants the job permanently – but it is doubtful that he will be awarded him a long-term contract would be sensible.

If Liverpool wins all four remaining games – they will finish with one more point than they amassed last May.

Newcastle has had nine managers in the 13 years since Dalglish left – handing P45s to Sir Bobby Robson, Graeme Souness, Sam Allardyce, Kevin Keegan, Chris Hughton and Shearer.
