Kenny Dalglish struggled to find the superlatives to describe Luis Suarez following the Liverpool striker's latest match winning performance.

Suarez netted twice against Stoke City on Wednesday night as the Reds triumphed 2-1 at the Britannia Stadium to book a place in the Carling Cup quarter-final.

The 24-year-old's first strike levelled the scoring and stunned Stoke fans and players alike as he whipped the ball into the top corner following some dazzling trickery.

Liverpool's winner then came with five minutes remaining, as Suarez beautifully steered Jordan Henderson's tempting cross past Thomas Sorensen.

Suarez now has 12 goals in 25 games for the Reds, and Dalglish is simply in awe of the Uruguay international.

"I ran out of words to describe him after a week when he came to our club," said the Liverpool boss.

"His first was a fantastic goal, but I don't think you'd expect him to score with a tap-in would you?

"He could have taken one before that and maybe it would have been more comfortable for us, but it was worth waiting for."

Dalglish added: "Both of his goals pleased us, but the most important thing was the way the boys went about their work.

"It was a fantastic first time ball in from Jordan [Henderson]. The quality of the pass in and the header was top class.

"But you get excited about any goal don't you?"
