Dalglish hails Liverpool spirit

Published Add your comment

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."
