ANDY CARROLL has been on the receiving end of merciless mocking from fans after he revealed a new look against Sheffield United.
The striker showed off impressive new post-lockdown facial hair as Newcastle beat the Blades 3-0.

The glossy-haired forward, 31, returned to action for the Magpies sporting an oddly striking new facial hairstyle.
It seems Carroll’s carefully coiffed beard resembles the bushy one worn by Byker Grove character Geoff Keegan.
And it’s provoked brutal barbs from some supporters.
One compared the imposing forward’s new look to the moustache grown by wrestling legend Triple H during his WWE Evolution phase.
And another said: “My mans out here looking like his shaver broke halfway through shaving.”
With hair salons and barbers yet to reopen, many Premier League stars have emerged from lockdown sporting some interesting new hairdos.
And Carroll’s handlebar moustache-sideburns combo certainly wouldn’t seem out of place at a convention for fans of legendary rock band Motorhead.

Carroll and his team-mates were in fine form for Newcastle after their lengthy spell out of action.
The Magpies played their first Premier League game since their 1-0 away win against Southampton in March.
They beat Sheffield United 3-0 today with all three goals scored in the second half.
Allan Saint-Maximin, Matt Ritchie and Joelinton were on target.
