Dalglish: Carroll was 'unplayable'

Kenny Dalglish heaped praise on a number of his players, including striker Andy Carrroll, following Liverpool's 4-1 thrashing of Chelsea on Tuesday.

Carroll was named man-of-the-match at Anfield as he led the Reds' attack to a result which leaves them within striking distance of seventh-placed rivals Everton. The emphatic win came three days after Liverpool's FA Cup final loss to the Blues, leaving Dalglish to hail the response from his charges, particularly the "unplayable" Carroll.

"The two boys in midfield [Jordan Henderson and Jonjo Shelvey] were great, big Andy [Carroll] was unplayable and Luis [Suarez] was fantastic," said Dalglish.

"The old boy at the back [Jamie Carragher] didn't do too badly either but everybody played their part."

An emotional Dalglish saluted the Kop after the final whistle, and thanked the fans for their show of faith in his press conference.

"The way the fans stayed behind at the end, I'm not sure there's any other set of fans that would have stood there and shown an appreciation like that," said Dalglish.

"The result was thoroughly deserved and the supporters can go home for the last time this season with smiles on their faces.

"It was an excellent performance. It's been seen a few times here this season but the result hasn't been as pleasing as that."
