Kenny Dalglish is relishing the prospect of employing the services of Luis Suarez, Andy Carroll and Steven Gerrard in the same Liverpool team - a luxury rarely afforded to him over the past 12 months.

Although Suarez hit his straps early in his Liverpool career, a slow start from Carroll on Merseyside and Gerrard's season-ending injury last year nipped any blossoming relationship in the bud.

But the Liverpool skipper is back firing on all cylinders once again, and Suarez is now available for selection after completing an eight-match suspension.

Carroll, meanwhile, is beginning to show glimpses of what he has to offer, and Dalglish is pleased to have an almost full fit squad to choose from.

"I've been told the three of them have only played 60 minutes together," he said, according to

"For various reasons I don't think they've had a great deal of time to play together on the pitch, but the West Brom game away in October comes to mind that Luis and Andy did well.

"Luis played Andy in for a goal that day and so we hope to see more of them together. I am happy we've got all the strikers fit and available at the moment. Within the team partnerships will develop."

Liverpool meet Tottenham at Anfield tonight hoping to avenge the 4-0 defeat suffered in the reverse fixture earlier this season.

Charlie Adam and Martin Skrtel both saw Red in an ill-tempered affair at White Hart Lane, in which Luka Modric, Jermain Defoe found the net and Emmanuel Adebayor scored a brace.
