Kenny Dalglish believes Pepe Reina is the best goalkeeper in the world. Reina will play his 150th consecutive league game for Liverpool tonight, the seventh longest streak in the club's history. In his pre-match press conference Dalglish paid tribute to his keeper. "It's fantastic for Pepe. It's great for him to make 150 consecutive appearances. He's our goalkeeper and it's important we have that continuity. The quality of his performances have been fantastic. I'm sure it's a milestone that he will think about very fondly," said the boss. "He's a huge influence on us. Not only does he stop goals - he creates them as well. It's great for us to have him between the sticks, and for me - if he's not the best - then I would like to see the one that is better than him."
