Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish believes the club's squad is stronger this season than it was in the last campaign.

Since returning to the role as Anfield boss in January, the Scot, along with director of football Damien Comolli, has set about remodelling an underperforming playing staff.

Eighteen squad members have left Liverpool, while millions of pounds have been spent bringing in the likes of Andy Carroll, Luis Suarez, Jordan Henderson and Stewart Downing among others.

Craig Bellamy and Sebastian Coates were the most recent arrivals, as the signings of the pair were confirmed on transfer deadline day.

Dalglish is delighted with the business to date and, ahead of Saturday's match at Stoke, he said: "I think the quality of the squad we have is better than it was last year.

"It's not a team that wins any trophies, it's a squad and the stronger our squad is, the better chance we have of coping with the problems that come up throughout the season.

"We're happy with the strength of our squad and the business we've done.

"It's not just the transfer window that's been busy for us, there's been a big turnaround in players which has been very important for us."
