Dalglish reveals striker tactics

Kenny Dalglish has revealed the key to getting the best out of Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez will be to keep the pressure off the strikers this season, despite the high price tags that came with their January signatures.

Carroll moved to Liverpool from Newcastle for £35 million, and Suarez from Ajax for £23 million. Both are lauded as the next big stars in the Barclays Premier League, and Suarez in particular has shone for Anfield in matches that have kept the side in contention for European qualification.

“Anything we get out of them this season will be a real bonus,” Dalglish told reporters.

“It is good to see them getting an opportunity to play together and get an understanding and we will keep working on that.


“But this time next year would be the better time to judge that when they have had time to settle in.”

Dalglish also revealed that he would be concentrating on blooding new youth for the Manchester City match up, keeping in mind that the players need to get as much of a confidence boost as possible from their experiences with the Liverpool first team.

"We have to be very careful. The Academy has progressed fantastically well over the last 18 months or so,” Dalglish said.

"We've got to be mindful of the fact that those youngsters need to be protected. They've played a lot of games at their level and if we are going to put anyone in, it won't be a problem - but we'll have to make sure we are sensible.

"The worst thing for us would be to put someone in and they have a bad game. That would be detrimental.

"So we have to be cautious because we have a lot of promising youngsters.

"We don't know what we are going to do at this moment in time but if we do put them in then none of them will let us down."
