Steven Gerrard selected Andy Carroll as his man of the match during Liverpool's 6-1 demolition of Brighton in the FA Cup.
The striker scored one and made another as the Reds progressed to the quarter-finals, where they have been drawn to face Stoke at home.
Carroll was also influential in Martin Skrtel's opener, jostling with defenders to allow our Slovakian defender space to head home at the near post.
Gerrard, who started a game alongside both Carroll and Luis Suarez for the first time, was impressed.
He said: "He has been brilliant for weeks now. He's getting better and better the more he settles into the club. We were really pleased with him and I thought he was our man of the match.
"We believe that the more we play together, the more we'll click. We're all good players and good players like playing with other good players. We're all on the same wavelength now and it'll get better and better."
Gerrard also praised the mindset of the players heading into the game - with no one focusing on next weekend's Carling Cup final at Wembley.
"It's always nice to first of all get the win and then to win convincingly," he said. "In the end we went through the gears and got better and better as the 90 minutes went on and we deserved our goals.
"The important thing was to focus on this game. The Carling Cup final was in our minds because we have a massive game at Wembley next week but we want to go to Wembley again in the FA Cup so today was just as important."
Next up for Liverpool in the FA Cup are Stoke, whose last visit to Anfield ended goalless on a day of missed chances.
Gerrard added: "It's not going to be an easy game. They came here in the league and were very resilient, defended really well. It was a tough game for us and we're expecting a similar game.
"Hopefully we can convert our chances this time and get to Wembley again - it would be fantastic for the supporters."
