Dalglish hails Liverpool spirit for Cup win over Man Utd

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish hailed his team's spirit after their FA Cup win over Manchester United.

Dirk Kuyt's 88th-minute goal proved decisive, after Daniel Agger's header had been cancelled out by Park Ji-sung before half-time, as Liverpool made it two cup victories three days having reached the Carling Cup final in midweek at the expense of Manchester City.

"It was a fantastic effort from our players after what they had to get through on Wednesday night," said Dalglish.

"To ask them to come back and play again on Saturday morning was pushing it a bit too far.

"Their commitment, attitude and desire to get a result was fantastic and we cannot speak highly enough of them after that performance and result today."
