Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is happy to deflect credit to his players for their form turnaround.

Dalglish once again played down his influence over proceedings, insisting he was not aware of a huge change in the way things worked.

"I have just noticed the players being really enthusiastic in training and in the way they've worked and they've had their reward for it on the pitch," he said.

"We've not been disappointed with any single player's attitude since we came in.

"On Thursday night a few of the lads (Joe Cole, Christian Poulsen, David Ngog and Jonjo Shelvey) played for the reserves and they had a great attitude towards the game, were fully committed and got a great deal out of it.

"That will do us no harm whatsoever, and neither will it do the players any harm either."
