Blackburn Rovers midfielder David Dunn says Dirk Kuyt is as crucial to Liverpool's success this season as Fernando Torres.

"Torres is such a big threat, with his runs and finishing, but Kuyt is just as important in my opinion," he said. "He is such an unselfish player.

"He can fill a number of positions, and you know he will work his socks off and never stop running. He is very good and maybe doesn't always get the credit he deserves."
