Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish praised the attitude of players and fans alike after his side knocked Manchester United out of the FA Cup with a 2-1 fourth round win at Anfield.

Off-field matters had dominated pre-match proceedings ahead of the first meeting of the two sides since Luis Suarez's eight-match ban for racially abusing Patrice Evra. Dirk Kuyt's 88th-minute goal proved decisive, after Daniel Agger's header had been cancelled out by Park Ji-sung before half-time.

Liverpool made it two cup victories three days having reached the Carling Cup final in midweek at the expense of Manchester City. Dalglish said: "It was a fantastic effort from our players after what they had to get through on Wednesday night."
