Dalglish: Norwich win a team effort

Kenny Dalglish insists Liverpool’s much needed win over Norwich was a team effort, and not just down to hat-trick hero Luis Suarez.


Suarez bagged a brilliant trio of goals to help see of the Canaries at Carrow Road, culminating in a spectacular chip form 45 yards.


However while the former Ajax forward took the match ball hime, Dalglish was keen to praise the efforts of his entire starting XI with two big games around the corner.


"(Suarez's goals) were all special for us and special for Luis," Dalglish said.


"His performance epitomises the performance that the rest of the team put in.


"When you consider what they have to look forward to next week, it is even more credible that they put that to the back of their minds and went out there and played."


The Reds go up against Fulham on Tuesday before they face Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday.


Dalglish made five changes for the win over Norwich and the Scot is expected to ring the changes for the game against the Cottagers on Tuesday, with Andy Carroll back in contention for a starting spot having recovered from injury.


Steven Gerrard, another returnee for the game against Norwich, admitted he was preparing to give Suarez a ticking off before his wonder-strike in the second half.


"I was just about to have a go at him and then turned it into a round of applause," the Reds skipper admitted.


Dalglish now hopes to help Liverpool end their season on a high, starting with the game against Fulham, and the former Blackburn boss said he facs a selection headache for his side’s two upcoming games.


"Team selection for me is always difficult because you are going to disappoint someone," he said.


"But we will go into Tuesday wanting to win, what comes after that comes after that - Tuesday is more important to us now."
