Liverpool striker Dirk Kuyt enjoyed arguably his finest match for the Reds in last night's 1-1 draw at Arsenal.

Kuyt struck Liverpool's equaliser - and survived an Arsenal penalty claim - to emerge as man of the match, says manager Rafa Benitez.

"Kuyt was our man of the match - he ran and ran and ran," insisted the Spaniard. "If we played another game straight afterwards he would still be running. He was always working and supporting."
