thumbnail Hello,

The Reds boss was pleased with the performances of his players in the midweek win over Stoke and praised summer signing Jose Enrique for his smooth transition to life at Anfield

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish will make a last minute decision over whether to play striker Luis Suarez against West Brom on Saturday.

The Uruguay international picked up a knock to his ankle in the League Cup win over Stoke City in the week but has subsequently received treatment and is in contention to return.

The Reds boss was impressed by the striker’s two-goal performance at the Britannia Stadium and hopes he will return for the weekend.

Dalglish said in a pre-match press conference: "He's had a bit of treatment so we'll see how he is. He's had a tough time recently, so we'll see how he is tomorrow.

"I said it the other night, my vocabulary ran out within a week when the wee man came here.

"He's been fantastic and the great thing him about him is that he is very unassuming as well.

"Everybody can see what he can do on the pitch. He's got no edge to him. He doesn't think he is better than anyone else and he's fantastic in and around the football club. He's a great ambassador for the club as well.

"He's only been here since January and we are already running out of compliments to pay him. That in itself is a huge compliment I suppose."

The manager also eulogised summer signing Jose Enrique’s seamless transition into the Liverpool ranks following his move from Newcastle United in the summer.

He said: "We're just delighted to have him. He's not disappointed us in any way, shape or form.

"If other people have an opinion that's fine, but we're the ones who had to make the choice on whether to sign him or not.

"We did and we're pleased we did sign him. He's done really well for us."

Dalglish also conceded that he faces a selection dilemma following an array of impressive performances by several players in their League Cup game in midweek.

"I think we alluded to it immediately after the game; how pleased we were with the effort and commitment of the players. If they hadn't have approached the game in that way then they wouldn't have got anything out of it," he continued.

"They did fantastically well. We are very pleased with the work that they did. Sometimes some of the hard work that they put in goes unrecognised, but they certainly had to put in a very good shift to win the match.

"Every game you go into gives you a selection problem. I suppose there is a wee bit more added to that after we got such a positive result at Stoke City, and after playing so well. It's a nice position to be in."
