Kenny Dalglish is pleased with his side's form so far this season. The boss has been impressed with his new side's showing in their opening three games and hopes to keep that run going at the Britannia Stadium tomorrow. "Everybody has produced a high standard so far - and it's up to us to maintain that standard. They've worked really hard in training and they've been great professionals," said Dalglish. "Some of the boys that have left the club were fantastic and not a problem whatsoever. They deserve great credit as well and we wish them well. "I don't know what we can achieve - but I know what we should be trying to achieve and that's to get ourselves right for the next game that's coming up. The more focused we are on taking it one game at a time, the better chance we'll have. "We've got a strong squad, we're happy with the squad and they've had the rewards for the hard work they've done. They'll just continue to work hard and we'll see what rewards we get in the future. "It's a really difficult place to go and play (Stoke), Tony Pulis has done a fantastic job and we've got to go there in the right frame of mind. "We know what we're going to be up against, which isn't a problem as far as I'm concerned. I'm not going to dictate to anybody or preach to anybody how they should play. It's their football club and Tony Pulis runs it brilliantly. "They've got into Europe this year and they've got a style of play that suits them very well - and it's a great credit to them that they have done so well. It's up to us to compete against them."
