Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish was delighted to have so many positives come out of their 5-1 FA Cup third-round win over Oldham at Anfield.

Jonjo Shelvey and Stewart Downing scored their first goals for the club, captain Steven Gerrard was on target on his first start for two months and there was also a goal for £35million record signing Andy Carroll. There was even the sight of defender Fabio Aurelio, who has not played since the final game of last season, featuring for an hour.

Dalglish said: "Stewart Downing scored, big Andy got a goal, Jonjo scored and Steven scored with a penalty, so we've had a few positives. Fabio got his first 60 minutes of the season, so for us there were a lot of positives to come out of it. They just need games. Every single one of them will be better for it."
