KENNY DALGLISH has hailed the blossoming understanding between Liverpool FC skipper Steven Gerrard and striker Luis Suarez.
The Reds duo linked up expertly to terrorise Everton in this week’s emphatic 3-0 derby victory at Anfield.
A combinations of injuries and suspension meant it was only the sixth time this season the pair have started together. Suarez laid on two goals in Gerrard’s hat-trick and the boss is hoping to see them wreak havoc in tomorrow’s FA Cup quarter-final at home to Stoke City.
“It wasn’t just the other night,” Dalglish said. “It’s been there in other games as well like the Carling Cup final and when we played Brighton here.
“We see it in training every day. If those two are playing together, they have a good understanding of each other because they are two intelligent footballers.
“I know Stevie praised Luis for his contribution against Everton and I can only endorse that.
“But that is not to say those two are on a different planet to nine others.
“It’s not just the two of them. They all benefit from each other and the better your passing is, the better you retain the ball and the better chance you have of creating chances.”
Gerrard’s display against the Blues showed he’s back to his brilliant best after an injury-plagued year.
The captain turns 32 in May but Dalglish, who played his final game for the Reds aged 39, expects the Reds to benefit from his talents for years to come.
