Luis Suarez helped Liverpool to a 2-1 win over Stoke on Wednesday night in the Carling Cup. Suarez scored two brilliant goals but had to be taken off with 5 minutes left in the game as he picked up a knock. Whilst Dalglish was explaining after the game about Suarez’s injury, the boss also put it an word or two explaining how Suarez is not a diver contrary to some peoples beliefs that our striker goes down too easily.
Dalglish explained: “He got kicked right at the end of the first half. He turned Jonathan Woodgate. He made contact with him but he tried to stay on his feet to take the chance. That’s where he hurt his leg. That just emphasises what we say about the wee man. He had the opportunity to stay on his feet (and did).
“Both of his goals pleased us, but the most important thing was the way the boys went about their work.
“It was a fantastic first time ball in from Jordan (Henderson). The quality of the pass in and the header was top class.
“But you get excited about any goal don’t you?”
