Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is delighted with the form displayed by goalkeeper Pepe Reina.

The Spanish goalkeeper was instrumental in the second of our three goals against Newcastle at the weekend, sending a superb kick down field towards Luis Suarez, who then won a penalty which was converted by Dirk Kuyt.

And Dalglish reflected: "His distribution is fantastic for us. He sees things, he's sharp. He made the second goal against Birmingham last week and he's done it again.

"It's important that he can pass the ball for us. If the opposition close up he can hit it long and if they back off he can knock it short."
