Dalglish excited by Liverpool attacking trio

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish was excited by their attacking performance for FA Cup victory over Brighton.

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish was excited by their attacking performance for FA Cup victory over Brighton.

Despite the visitors' best efforts, fair and foul, Andy Carroll refused to be shackled, Steven Gerrard was his usual rampaging self and Luis Suarez, after all that recent controversy, edged further towards top form.

It was the trio's first start together and the timing was perfect given Liverpool will look to secure their first trophy since 2006 when they take on Cardiff in the Carling Cup final at Wembley next Sunday.

"The three of them are fantastic footballers and they played really well today," said Dalglish.

"The more any team gets iconic players like they are on the pitch the better chance they have of being successful.

"But we have got more than three players.

"The fact we have done as well as we have and that was the first time the three of them have started a match tells you how well the other boys have done.

"We will stand and be counted as a squad and I don't think we have done too badly this year."
