Derby just the tonic for Dalglish

Published Add your comment

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish believes the Merseyside derby could be just what his side need to shake themselves from their current run.

Defeat at Sunderland at the weekend was the first time since 2003 the Reds had lost three successive league matches. Their performances have varied wildly from the dominant display against Arsenal on their last appearance at Anfield to the disappointing show at the Stadium of Light.

But Dalglish knows a result in the derby would give his players the necessary lift, and the Scot said: "It is a massive game, like any derby is for any club involved in one. We know how much enjoyment the people get out of winning the game but the players get a lot out of enjoyment out of it also."
