Luis Suarez and Dirk Kuyt
DIRK KUYT has seemingly endless reserves of energy – but even the Liverpool FC marathon man would like more time to rest.
Tonight Liverpool FC go to Stamford Bridge in the Carling Cup quarter-finals, just 48 hours after their 1-1 draw against Manchester City.
There was little routine about the game at Anfield on Sunday either as Kuyt and company attacked Roberto Mancini’s men at an unrelenting pace.
The point they took seemed scant reward for the effort served up and Kenny Dalglish will ask his men to dig deep once more this evening when they face Chelsea for the second time in 10 days.
Dalglish has been forthright in his assessment of the timing of tonight’s last eight tie and Kuyt admits to also having concerns.
But the Dutch international insists Liverpool must put their grievances to one side and focus on securing a fourth win in as many games against Chelsea.
“Normally in football you get a couple of days to recover and to prepare for a game – especially a big game like the quarter-final of the Carling Cup against Chelsea,” said Kuyt.
“It’s tough to play again in 48 hours but it is like it is and we’re looking forward to the game and want to win. It would be a great achievement for this team to get another good result at Stamford Bridge.
