The former Leeds left-back, given an extended run in the side after an injury to Charlie Daniels, netted a stunning long-range effort as they won 4-2 at Birmingham on Saturday to delight his manager.

"Since he's come into the team we have scored a lot of goals from that sweet left peg," Howe told the club's official website.

"He's a set-piece specialist - we know about his left foot.

"I think his experience has been key for us. He knows how to manage games for us.

"He's been at the very highest level in world football. He's seen it and been there and done it and that can only help the players around him.

"He's been excellent for us defensively and he's been excellent from set plays, so it's great to see him score, and it's a fitting reward for his performances."

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
