Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish marvelled in the attitude and commitment of his side after the Reds fought late to secure a point against Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.

After going behind to a 96th minute Robin van Persie penalty, Liverpool showed resolve to keep their heads up and went on to earn a 101st minute equaliser through Dirk Kuyt’s penalty.

Dalglish spoke of his pride for his players’ continuing battle to still rescue the game, despite the very late setback.

He told press, “I don’t think there’s another team anywhere that would show the attitude and commitment we showed out there today.

“They went through a wee bit of adversity, losing Fabio Aurelio early on and putting a 17-year-old boy on at left-back. Losing the captain, having a right-back who’s only 18, losing a centre forward, losing a goal eight minutes into injury-time, and they still didn’t want to accept they were going to get nothing from the game.

“I don’t think I can speak any higher than that. Everybody will be sat there tonight proud at having seen their team produce a performance like that with the attitude and commitment.”
