Kenny Dalglish has sung the praises of Joe Cole. Cole is in line to make his first start under Dalglish in tonight's Europa League game with Sparta Prague and he will do so full of confidence after receiving the full backing of his manager. "Joe certainly looks really sharp in training," said the King. "He's done nothing but good over the last couple of weeks when he's been fit enough to train and he did well enough against Sparta last week. "Joe has the ability to open up a can of beans. He's a talented footballer and we will try our best to get that out of him. "He's positive, he's lively and he's bubbly. Steve Clarke coming in will have helped him as well because he has worked with him before. We have no problems with Joe."
