Dalglish - Reaction to draw shows how far Liverpool have come

Kenny Dalglish was quizzed about Liverpool's season and their prolific strike partnership.

Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish has said the side being disappointed in draw with West Bromwich Albion shows how far the side has come.

The Reds drew 1-1 thanks to a calamitous error from Kolo Toure allowed Victor Anichebe to equalise after Daniel Sturridge had put the visitors in front at The Hawthorns.

But Dalglish thinks it shows a sign of progress that the side he had two spells managing, and says it will take ‘someone half-decent’ to beat the Reds to the fourth Champions League spot.

In an interview with Sky Sports News, Dalglish said: ‘I think it was very difficult conditions for both teams to play in, I don’t think Liverpool ever looked like losing the game. A draw tells you how far if Liverpool are disappointed with the result, how far Liverpool have come.

‘It’s going to take somebody half decent to put them out of fourth spot and throughout the length of the season people do make mistakes, it’s how you react to them that counts. It was unfortunate that they never came away with the three points on Sunday at The Hawthorns but I’m sure there will be many more games when they’ll get the three points.’

Dalglish was also asked about the partnership between Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, saying it wasn’t blossoming, but had already bloomed.

‘They’re two fantastic individuals and all credit to them, they’re playing for the team as well. They put in a good shift when they’ve not got the ball, they work well with each other and as individuals. They’re really difficult to stop so they’ve been fantastic.’
