Wigan boss Martinez hails Dalglish: Best Liverpool team in years

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez is impressed by Kenny Dalglish's Liverpool.

Dalglish's men are handily placed in sixth, and Martinez believes they will be the strongest Liverpool side Wigan have faced over recent years.

"(They are) very impressive," he said.

"I got the opportunity to see them live against Aston Villa and it gives you the impression they have a lot of very good players, they know what it means to play for Liverpool and have been there a long time.

"Others are having a honeymoon period, they have very good pace with (Craig) Bellamy and (Stewart) Downing, and (Luis) Suarez who is in the moment of his career.

"They have quality all over and this is probably the strongest Liverpool we'll have faced in the last three or four years."
