Kenny Dalglish praised the performance of Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, who put his off the field issues behind him to inspire his side to a 2-0 win at Aston Villa.

Suarez's build-up to the game was affected with an Football Association hearing into allegations he racially abused Manchester United defender Patrice Evra hanging over him. However, the Uruguayan striker showed no ill-effects and was in irresistible form against Villa, with the woodwork twice denying him a goal.

Dalglish said: "Suarez has been sat in a hotel room for three days. He only trained on Tuesday and Friday.Then he put in a performance like that. It speaks volumes for the man."
