Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is delighted with the progress they're making on the pitch.

On the field there is no doubt they are heading in the right direction, with Arsenal and Chelsea's woes opening the door to a Champions League slot.

Dalglish said: "We are in a better position than a year ago, when we were out of the FA Cup and Carling Cup and tailed off in the league.

"Now we're four points off fourth spot, the fifth round of the cup's coming up and we are in the Carling Cup final. We still have an awful lot to play for."
