Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has defended Luis Suarez's lack of goals.

Some critics have suggested the 25-year-old is trying to do too much by being a creator as well as a goalscorer, while others have said he will not be a prolific striker in England.

Dalglish, however, has no doubts about Suarez, who was his first signing on returning to the club for a second spell 14 months ago.

"There is plenty of evidence to show what he can do," said Dalglish.

"We know what Luis can do, I think everyone knows what he can do, and I don't think there is a lack of evidence to prove that he is a fantastic footballer."
