DALGLISH: "The people who said that are looking a bit stupid now..."

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has dismissed suggestions that his players will gain extra motivation from playing against Anfield old-boys Fernando Torres and Raul Meireles on Sunday, but he has highlighted two players who could be a serious threat for Chelsea in the upcoming Premier League game.

Earlier in the season, Frank Lampard was on the bench for both Chelsea and England; he was swiftly written-off by the Press, which argued his career was on the wane, and his time as a top player had passed.

That's definitely not a view shared by Dalglish:

"I don't think there was any suggestion from here that Frank Lampard's time had passed, so I think the people that said are looking a bit stupid now".

Indeed they are - Lampard has scored 6 goals and created three more in his last 9 games for Chelsea, and he'll definitely be a threat on Sunday.

Spain International Juan Mata is another player that worries Dalglish:

"Juan Mata is a very good player, I just hope he has a nightmare on Sunday!"

Mata's recent form suggests that this is not likely to happen, but let's hope Dalglish's words come true on Sunday!
