Kenny ready to unleash Suarez, Gerrard and Carroll

KENNY Dalglish will send out his top three on a revenge mission against Spurs at Anfield tonight.

Still smarting after the 4-0 hammering at White Hart Lane back in September, Dalglish will ask Steven Gerrard, Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez to combine for the first time and put Liverpool back in the battle for third and fourth in the Premier League.

Suarez returns after his eight-match ban and Carroll will start a game alongside the Uruguayan hitman for the first time since he joined a year ago.

Injuries have prevented Gerrard from joining the party until now, and the trio have only ever played 69 minutes together for the Reds.

"It does give you a lift when you get your players back and available for selection and Luis returning will be a lift," said Dalglish.

"I didn't know Stevie, Luis and Andy have played so infrequently together.

"But they have been injured. It is a positive for us that we have that to look forward to."
