Dalglish made one change to the side that lost 1-0 at Stoke last week by drafting Andy Carroll in for Dirk Kuyt.
Quizzed as to why he had opted to make the switch, the boss said: "You can stick with the players you want. As I've said before, it's not just about a team .It's about a squad and that will be used throughout the season.
"When there is a victory no comments are made about the team but if it's a defeat then whatever players you use are wrong.
"With how we started the game we would still have lost, irrespective of what else happened."
