Liverpool attacker Dirk Kuyt is aiming to deliver fans a late Christmas present with victory over Blackburn Rovers.

The Reds play host to Blackburn Rovers in the traditional Boxing Day fixture - and Kuyt is determined to provide some festive cheer to supporters.

"We all want to be happy and get the three points, especially on Boxing Day," the Dutchman told Liverpoolfc.tv. "It's going to be a very important game for us - as will all of the games around Christmas. To win on Boxing Day at home will be massive for everyone.

"They will give everything they've got. They're not a bad team. They are physically very strong, so we have to be ready for them, believe in our own strengths and get the three points.

"It's a crucial period. If we can get as many points as possible it will be great because if we get the right results, we will be right up there where we want to be.

"Hopefully we can go on another good run and take it into the New Year."
