Luis Suarez will be given until the last minute to prove his fitness ahead of Liverpool's Barclays Premier League trip to West Brom on Saturday, reveals Kenny Dalglish.
The 24-year-old Uruguayan hit-man turned in a match-winning display in the Carling Cup victory over Stoke on Wednesday, but was substituted in injury time after picking up an ankle knock.
"He's had a bit of treatment so we'll see how he is," said Dalglish. "He's had a tough time recently, so we'll see how he is tomorrow."
Suarez's impressive brace which downed Tony Pulis' men, left the Reds boss struggling for superlatives during his post-match press conference, and he has since revisited the subject of just how pleased he has been with his impact since the South American's arrival at Anfield in January.
"I said it the other night, my vocabulary ran out within a week when the wee man came here," he added. "He's been fantastic and the great thing him about him is that he is very unassuming as well.
"Everybody can see what he can do on the pitch. He's got no edge to him. He doesn't think he is better than anyone else and he's fantastic in and around the football club. He's a great ambassador for the club as well.
"So for us, as well as his football, the other things he brings to the club are important as well.
"He's only been here since January and we are already running out of compliments to pay him. That in itself is a huge compliment I suppose."
