Liverpool hero Jan Molby was full of praise for Jay Spearing after his performance in the derby win over Everton.

The Dane wrote in the Liverpool Echo: "Jay Spearing was excellent against Everton and there's something about him I really like.

"It's his attitude and the way he goes about his job.

"I think Jay would be the first to admit he's not top drawer on the ball.

"But he moves it simply and he is a quick passer.

"Other players benefit from that because too often this season the build-up has been too slow."
