Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is delighted that Dirk Kuyt will make his 150th appearance for the club on Monday against Aston Villa.

"It's a fantastic achievement for Dirk," said Benitez. "This is a massive club, so to play that number of games here means we are talking about a good player.

"Everybody knows about his work rate and his quality. He played really well for Holland against England recently, so everybody can see he is not just a worker.
